i been searching for this topic for the past 2 months,
and quite frankly, no one has talked about this since the release of socialengine 4 and phpfox 2,
both companies have developed a new platform.
from my understanding:SE4vsPF2
Socialengine has very limited administration control comparing to phpfox, i mean, alot!.
and phpfox supports foreign characters while on socialengine, you can only search with names that are in english,
On Phpfox, you can lock your blog, prevent unwanted people from reading it.
Phpfox, also lets your users to sign up without entering a screen name, SE_3 had this option, but they decided to take it away, big mistake!
also, i noticed, on phpfox, whenever a user updates, and edit his photo, either in album, or in other places, the script automatically deleted the old picture off the system,
while on social engine, haha good luck with that. i have a user who is almost 2 years old, and his folder contains pictures he uploaded or edited from the past, its about 1G, when on the database only 2Mb of pictures that are actually linking to be alive and accessible, all the rest are waste content.
not to mention socialengine 4 is very slow, alot of golden features are missing from SE_3.
the only thing good about socialengine right now is its themes, i have to admit they did a good job on making their script looking pretty.
i'm still doing more digging on phpfox, seems like there isnt a nulled forum dedicated to phpfox, maybe i just haven't found it yet, or maybe you guys can start one, just send me a msg, and i'll try to help as much as i can. and now back to understanding phpfox. XD
For SocialEngine Team, they fix some bugs on a new upgrade but break a couple more somewhere else, when the script finally is bug free, its time to move on to SocialEngine v5, and guess what? The process repeats. -FireBox
