New Bulletin Board Software

Post by Zod » 2007-12-28, 09:09

Hi all,

I used the chance of the recovery to install a new bulletin board software, the new version 3.0 of phpBB. Please evaluate carefully and let me know what you think of it. I am still playing with it myself.

First I though there were no skins available yet but then I found this nice collection for phpBB 3.0 skins: http://www.phpbb3styles.net/. I chose the DarkSunYellow skin by the Poker Brothers and adjusted it to the ZZone design. :shake:

Please post your feedback in this thread.

Best regards,
Zod

I think the new board looks very slick! :D The style seems very zeddish and appropriate 8) and the controls seem slightly more helpful and user-friendly too.

Only thing I could complain about is that I got used to seeing the avatar right beneath the user's name. :P

It's very fortunate you had a backup, many hosts insist that you backup your own stuff and that isn't always a concern.

Nice forum, I upgraded mine too but had to wipe it for now since there's no SMF->phpBB3 converter yet. :empty:
