    I haven't worked with many of these systems, but I generally prefer IPB, if given the option (and the budget). The user interface seems to be a bit more intuitive that most, but offered more options, at the same time.

    How is it at all difficult to learn? I can't think of how they'd make theming any easier. They have a mode for people that have no experience whatsoever to modify themes, and also an incredibly userfriendly mode for more experienced users. You can search for pieces of code in both theme and template files to avoid painful manual work. It makes any changes to themes easier than anything I've ever seen. Then they also have a great spot to customize colors on the fly.

    IPB 4 has by far the best and most userfriendly theme editing system to date.

    Totally agree, IPS 3's search system within a theme sucked arse.

    I personally prefer vBulletin 4's method to editing themes. IPB just randomly uploads images and gives them random file names, meaning all customisation have to be done in the ACP, rather than just editing a CSS file and re-uploading new images to the forum directory.

    Uhh, what? You upload an image through the 'Manage Resources' area. From there, it gives you a piece of code directly referencing that image. Put that reference into the CSS and boom, done.



    Need to change the image? Edit the resource and upload a different image in place of it. You don't need to change anything in the CSS at all.



    There is no reason to use the random file name it gives. Reference the resource path it gives you (which is whatever you named the file when you uploaded it) and you're golden for life. Maybe you're not using the system as it's meant to be used.
