For portal development, I think one important factor is to have one common user database for all modules. I am thinking to use phpbb, postnuke and photo gallery together to build my web site. However I found that every php package has it own user login structure and users need to have register and l...

Thanks for your support. However I think it is not a technical issue. I found in hotscripts.com there are many login script ready for use. The issue is that you must have something agreed beforehand among the open group developer teams otherwise you still need to integrate them manually. I saw that ...

One more point about the advantage to have common user database is that php developer team can save effort in every php project to create one separate user login function (this point may also apply in several php hot projects e.g. forum, portal, photo gallery, news, poll, ...)

Whether it is a default for auto logon or not may need to debate. However I found that some configurable optons in phpBB 2.0 are change to use template instead of admin panel. One feature I found in phpBB 1.4 about footer/header editing is also change to templates. Is it the original purpose to use ...

Description of forum

I found that the description of the forum only shown in the index page. Once the user entered into the forum, the description disappear. Anyone has MODs or hack can display the description under the page logo or the page heading.

Core Features

From the core feature list, it seems it is very similar to existing 2.0 or future 2.2 Sorry to plagerise, but BartVB (Penguin-hater though he may be ;) ) has a point about keeping the initial release time to a minimum. Hence I am posting another copy of the list Jay assembled, but with the features ...

I also prefer to have web based editor for templates send her the tenplate files I could do that, but if she needs to make a change then she'll have to send them back for me to upload them. The problem for me is that she is the boss :) I only host the board. I want her to be able to make alterations...

Using template for layout setting

After checking several threads of discussions in the forum, I know that the layout setting of the forum need to be set by editing the pre-defined templates. If I have more than 1 set of template say 4 or 5 sets, I need to change the same templates in each theme one by one, am I right? In the past, a...

Yes, sub-category is also one of the very useful feature for high traffic BB. However for casual use, I think current one-level category is enough. I think they are 100% equal because they run on different server types. one on anything with PHP and a databse server and one on Perl and MySQL/DBM/Post...
