Differences between Burning Board and Burning Board Lite

Burning Board Lite is free and is simply a light version of what propose the full and commercial Burning Board product. You will be able to migrate from the light and free edition quite easily, so this is perfect to review and test the software before purchase it. We would really appreciate this kind of efforts from other commercial companies, so thank you Woltlab for showing the right example.

The whole prices list is available at the Purchase screen of Woltlab.

WBB and Woltlab Community Framework (WCF)

WBB 3 is built upon a WoltLab-developped framework (called "WoltLab Community Framework", in short "WCF"), which uses a package management system, like Linux does. WCF is being installed while installing WBB, which slows down a bit the whole installation however. As WBB 3 is only an application running on top of WCF, many other applications can be run with WCF simultaneously.

WCF supports all applications, serving database, users and many other basic system functions, so that developers do not have to develop everything repeatedly. That way you can build large sites running only one integrated system. Apps even share the style of the system (called "skin" in your comparison).
