Anybody here with experience playing/administering an Invision Power Board?

Yep, I have on v1.2 and I like it a lot. My hosting service offered it for free but I am going to upgrade 10mmTalk to v2.0.1 pretty soon though just to get ahead of the curve of gun forums. It will cost this time but after playing with it I believe it is a justified expense.

I played around with VBulletin but even VB does not have the features of Invision, not by a longshot. It has been completely stable and reliable and very easy to make changes, add smilies, images, etc... It is very customizable and simple to operate. I far from an Administration guru but can do what I like whenever I like in the way of adding and changing.

If there is something specific you would like to know about let me know.

Thank you!

You WILL be hearing from me. :)

It (Version 1.2)came free from the ISP ( are using for the group's website. For a newbie, I find it to be a bit of a struggle without sufficient documentation and a glossary of terms.

The plan is to add a bulletin board to our website:
