I am presently testing both portals. 

Many years ago I started with Tiny Portal, then I move  to Ez-portal, because it seemed that tiny portal was going to a phase where development was iffy. 

Now as I am starting a new forum, I am evaluating which one is better. 

Any comments on performance and usability is welcome.

TinyPortal is kept up to date, with support for SMF2.1. There are no plans to stop support. Cannot comment on Ezportal.

I assume you will just have to compare functionality and look and fell and then make your decision.

It all depends on what you are looking for in a portal

Ok and what is the difference between tiny portal and eh portal?

In the time taken to ask about these things and wait for a response, you could have installed them and tried them out to see that they basically do the same job in slightly different ways...

I will for ezportal and Simple Portal. I doubt I will do it for EH portal. Hence my question. ;-)

Well there's no Simple Portal for SMF 2.1, that'd be EhPortal.
I know that Tiny Portal, Light Portal and EzPortal work on SMF 2.1, and I suppose EhPortal might work too.

In TP you have the option of chats (more than one). The other one doesn't.
But both are very good!

Light Portal by @Bugo is a very good portal imo.

For me light portal has some great ideas. Myself have sponsored that project.
TinyPortal if you want built in articles/downloads. Was the first portal I used for a long time.
ezPortal - simple portal with blocks or if using my addons has some of those built as blocks. I built originally for my forum hosting system since wanted to control performance/updates better.

I use SMF since 2005.
I have been using Simple Portal (it was amazing for years!).

I just tested all 4 available Portals yesterday.
I'm referring to SMF 2.1.

Hoping to do something useful for others (it's my way to say tks for all the help I received and receive here), I summarize my opinions about all 4 Portals.


1) Eh Portal (not downloadable from this site)
- it'd be choice n. 1 for people who used Simple Portal (it's a ported version)
- graphic is super nice
- you maintain all blocks and pages
- there are some visual bugs and support is not given on this forum, but on the forum od developers
- I don't know if support is fast and/or continued

2) Ez Portal (link to Mod)
- complete system of @vbgamer45
- you have direct support by him
- good performance
- continue development

3) Light Portal (link to Mod)
- amazing Portal by @Bugo (please look at his other Mods, they are wonderful)
- it has super nice options and features
- I think it'll be the future of SMF
- at the moment, it's a little bit young, but it's awesome for its beauty!
- I have encountered some bugs in installing and uninstalling

4) Tiny Portal (link to Mod)
- super mature Portal
- full of features and stable
- the safest option for a production website

Hugs! 🤗
