  • My only beef is the inability to have sub forums, they have been promising that for almost 4 years now....... Other than that it is very good and very easy to customize.

  • My full review is much longer than what they'll allow but I find their support superb, hosting options excellent, and the admin interface very user friendly. I wish I could post my full review but it is way longer than the allotted characters. I have published it in the testimonials forum on their site though.

  • I've used this software and watched its glacial development curve for 3 years. There are dozens of bugs and other issues that exist in WowBB. Fact is there are other forum packages out there (e.g., phpBB) which offer superior features at a lower cost/free. Official support is lax in responding. Community forums @ WowBB are censored to weed out bad exp's with the product/developers. And the development team excels at hyping vaporware ("WowPublish", now 3+ years old without a beta in sight).

  • However, the customer service was horid. It was run like a hobbiest site even though one had paid for the script. It was so bad that I orginally had PHPBB and then purchased Wowbb and found the customer service the same at the same level of PHPBB...PHPBB was free so one would not expect to get much service but when it's paid one expects more...They have almost no geek base code, and the owner is totally unwilling to answer questions about wowbb code or modifications. I when back to PHPBB

  • There are currently hundreds of Bulletin Board scripts, of which the majority in PHP alone. One Bulletin Board contains more or other features than another. There is just one 'feature' I see in WowBB that I haven't seen in any other bulletin board, and that is the 'select users by location' feature with a spiffy map. However, it's nothing more than eye candy, and doesn't add any functionality or whatnot. Furthermore, from a Bulletin Board being claimed professional and which even costs a pretty penny, I would at least expect the Bulletin Board's source code to be written in valid markup languages. In the demos alone, there are already numerious pages or features that either don't work or just look screwed up in a different browser, while they do work on SOME others, which proves the lack of proper markup. I would like to add that WowBB does indeed stand out between the majority of other Bulletin Board scripts, simply because it's also packed with actually useful features. However, WowBB doesn't really make me feel "Wow", and with all the good Bulletin Board scripts out there that don't cost any money, WowBB would be the last thing I'd spend any dollar on for that matter. A 2 for effort.
