A note I received this month from the admin of the Science File
http://www.sciencefile.org/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl

Their on-line magazine:
http://www.sciencefile.org/system/index.php

Quote:
Just out of interest, our members have not been using YaBB for over a year. We moved to forum software called Kunena, which runs under the Joomla CMS  and that what the main Science File site is written in. Before, we had the YaBB forums and the main site, with no interactin between the two, and it was always my intent to integrate the forums with the main site.

However, we've had a year of problems with Kunena - odd and seemingly unsolvable errors, frequent downtime to fix problems and so on, so I gave our members the choice of going back to YaBB - and they voted to unanimously. They are happy being back in a reliable,  stable environment which always works, and where any downtime is always my fault.  So,  although for me it's not ideal having effectively two sites, the members are happy, which is the main thing.

All the best Jon

Andy.


Thanks Andy -

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

That's great to hear.  YaBB does have its advantages which is why it has survived so long even though it's not the top contender any more.
