    I've ran XF, IPS and WBB.
    Of the two you mention I personally prefer IPS as it is a more rounded product.

    I also wanted them to have the system to hide content in the Forum and a system of invitations, both have this?

    'Hiding' content should be possible. You'll need a 3rd-party addon for an invite system.

    If your forum is small and not monetized, consider your budget. Woltlab will be your most cost-effective and easiest to manage option, and IPB more expensive to maintain but entreprise-tier reliable with lots of features officially supported admins would find handy, whereas you're at the mercy of addonmakers elsewhere.

    If you're undecided, you couldn't go wrong with Xenforo, but I suggest you research all software touroughly to evaluate wether it does suit your specific uses and any features your users are not willing to lose.

    I have a lot of respect for WBB. Their developer is also active on TAZ.

    Between a suite of IPS or WBB, I feel like IPS is much more mature with more in-depth features.

    Ultimately, you need to run a demo of both. Use it as if you would use your own community, and make the best determination. If you have any questions about IPS, please ask in the IPS forum and I'll try to answer.

    There are quite a few mods on IPS that can hide content. You'll need to see which one is appropriate for you:
