A suggestion for this Forum.

Though, PunBB seems like a good forum type, could I make suggestion into another type of forum?

I prefer the PHPBB forums, (http://www.phpbb.com) as it's quite a good layout and all. I'd also suggest using the RapturePHP (http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/4003). It's a good style and the images on it are interchangable.

It's only a suggestion, though one I hope you take into mind.

Any questions on PHPBB, I can answer most of them.

Re: A suggestion for this Forum.

Well, there is the point that you'd have to start from scratch, which is the most annoying part of it. Plus, all your members would have to re-apply. That's the drawbacks of changing. But, you can always take any important threads, or interesting ones, and put them onto the PHPBB forum. It's just a thought and my own opinion on which forum I like.

Possibly quite hard, but i have no idea what Zach, my furry friend, is going on about. So don't take my word for it. Don't even listen to me. Even delete this post if you want. Please don't!!:(

Re: A suggestion for this Forum.

Installing PHPBB isn't that hard. It's simple, really. The Admin Panel is just as easy to navigate.

To install it, you'd most likely have to this; in this order:
Firstly, create the database, give a name like 'PHPBB' or something like that.
Upload the files needed to the FTP account for wherever you want to put the files.
Go to '[Filepath]/install.php' and then follow the form.
After that's done, put the 'RapturePHP' folder into the 'Templates' folder and then it'll do the rest for you, all you'll have to do is just change the template in the configuration.

It may look difficult from that, actually. smile But, it's not.

Re: A suggestion for this Forum.

Wel, punbb was a little similar.

And I would have to see if phpbb has a way of protecting the privacy of younger members. Members (Guests too) 13 or under should not have personal details published.

Re: A suggestion for this Forum.

Ah, I suppose. I just liked PHPBB better, really. But, it's up to you and it's just my opinion on such things. Probably because I use PHPBB more than PunBB.

Re: A suggestion for this Forum.

Yes! Well, I didn't change to phpBB, I kept it with punBB. When I checked it all out, I found that people were moving TO punBB.

So I did some some upgrading of the existing board over Easter. Do you like it?
