As people age vision can get out of focus. Its presbyopia.

bolting phpBB under WordPress

I was looking at bolting on phpBB under Wordpress and I was wondering how hard it would be to maintain my menu and header similar to how this site is setup. I have seen a few plug-ins but I figure I should ask here.

Suggestions?

Re: BadMash3 Exploit

I suggest using strong 128-bit or better passwords to be sure hacking is fruitless, that applies to the database as well as the administrator accounts etc

this way you are safe from most attempts to copy databases

mysql is only as secure as the server that hosts it

Re: PHP 7.1 compatibility?

There are lots of compatibility issues with 7.0 so hopefully various PHP packages can be updated before PHP becomes a problem, again :(

It's a nuisance with backwards compatibility broken
