  1. Is SMF a nice option for a minecraft network forum? I think XenForo is too expensive for me.
     
  2. I find Smf not very good. it's hard to set it up, lacks alot of things and doesn't have much modern themes. They do have alot of addons, which are all made for another version. If you want to, you can use it. But remember that it isn't as easy and modern as XenForo.

    I personally would take mybb.

    Take a look at Vanilla. It's free (if you host it yourself) and open source with lots of addons and more modern than any BB forum.

  7. Thanks but Vanilla allows range-ip banning? or hostname banning like SFM? thanks for the answer.

    Maybe? If not then there is probably an addon for that. I would suggest doing that through your firewall though.
