Forum - IPB, Xenforo etc. Please Have a link to a forum you have created
Hi we want to build a family forum will a fully functional ecommerce aspect. The forum needs tp be beautiful since its oriented towards women, easy to navigate and un complicated for the admins who are not very tech savvy. I've heard of Xenforo and IPB being the most user friendly . but we are open to suggestions. The site needts to have a shout box/ chat room , private message, photos, competitions are for voting (think lik voting for cutest baby contest etc), we would also like something that is a countdown (pregnancy countdown to be precise).
Here are some sample sites
We want creative pitches and designs and also additional plugins that will help make the forum stand out. So in you proposal please suggest what forum you would use and why and the plugins you reccomend.
