Top portals for SMF?
« on: March 28, 2018, 11:33:23 PM »
I'm sorry if this doesn't belong here or if these types of topics aren't allowed.

I'm looking to set up a portal to use for my new SMF forum. I would like to know which are the most popular ones or the one's that people have had the most success with.

Thank you, friend. I'll give those a look. I remember using MKPortal back in the day. I believe it's been gone for awhile.

I have been using simple portal, not to it's full extend but found it easy to setup / config and so far no major issues with it.

Another vote for TP.  I've tried all three and SP didn't "do it" for me, EZ Portal is perfectly good, but in the end TP ticked more boxes for me, especially as far as the responsive situation is concerned.

There are pros and cons of all of them.

I'd recommend that you set up a test forum and try each of SP, TP and EZ and see which YOU prefer.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

To paraphrase Kindred: "There are no technical solutions to social problems."

Not fully up to speed but do any of these portals support 2.1 ?
