Switch to new phpbb3... see what you think here

Postby BushMogulMaster » Thu Dec 06, 2007 5:05 pm

I installed the new version of phpbb to a beta folder for you all to look at and decide if we want to officially make the switch. Don't use it as the forum yet, the database is out of date. If we choose to upgrade forums.mogulskiing.net, I will do a database update again so that it is synced to the most recent posts, and then migrate it to this address (forums.mogulskiing.net).

Have a look at http://betaforums.mogulskiing.net

Aye. That was the idea, laddy.

Anyone else have an opinion either way on this?

BMM - it looks nice, but thats effectively just a skin change. That could easily be done with V2 as well. What are the real behind the scenes under the hood benefits of V3?

We're running V2 over at KZone as well, I just haven't had the time to read up on the V3 new features. Thanks

Improved posting features, cleaner design, better pm script, and way way way better administrative features. I personally like it much better than v2. You should do what I did, and install it in a beta folder just to play with it and see if you like it. If not, no loss. If so, then make the official migration.
