Hosting and technical maintenance
Since Tribe Platform is a cloud-based solution, as a community builder you don’t have to worry about the hosting and technical details such as software maintenance, upgrades, database, etc. All you have to do is focus on moderating and growing your community.
Customizable community platform
Tribe offers a fully customizable community platform that can be customized by selecting and showcasing various components of the community exactly the way you need. It can also completely adopt your brand guidelines and merge with your main site navigation if required.
Although phpBB is a free and open-source solution, you would have to pay for the hosting at the very least. Also, consider the opportunity cost in terms of time spent on handling the hosting and configurations.
Tribe, as a phpBB alternative offers a free plan with 100 members and unlimited content that supports your own custom domain as well. Paid plan starts from $49/month.
Apps and API
Tribe’s community solution has been built with a vibrant ecosystem of apps and API that work together to extend the functionality of the core platform. There are 20+ built-in integrations with leading third-party tools to automate data flow and automate the existing process. Also, valuable apps such as SEO booster, webhooks, and social login allow you to improve the capability of the community to a large extent.
Integration in the buyer lifecycle
Based on the community flywheel concept, Tribe offers embeddable widgets that can be used to add different elements (e.g., discussions) of the community inside any other product or website. This helps add community touchpoints across the buyer lifecycle and improve customer experience.

Unlike phpBB, Tribe offers an activity feed that is personalized based on members’ participation is Spaces. This helps you deliver relevant content to the community members, boosts engagement, and makes your community sticky.
