Upgrade the main phpBB!

Post by Shantra » Tue Oct 02, 2001 3:50 am

Isn't it time to upgrade the main phpBB forum?
Since this is the first place that many people visit, they should see the fantastic new v2. Or isn't it stable enough? I fear that some of them just browse bye and leaving. A friend of my did!!!!

Just a thought :!
Keep up the good work everybody

Leave the main forum as is. phpBB2 isn't yet finished. There's no reason in letting the users see this version if they cannot use it for production.

There should at least be a big link someplace:
If you have balls of steel and good bladder control, and don't mind mucking through thousands of lines of code to find one lousy close quote and then posting it so that millions of other people don't suffer the same agonizing fate that you did, click here.
I am no longer doing any phpBB related projects. Except Vertex, which is only a front for Sphereal.

I think he's just trying to be funny. With success.
But really I also think there should be a visible link to the phpBB 2 forum on the main one. The more people see it, the more people like it.

That's a different thing. People will keep asking "When will phpBB 2 come out", "How do I install phpBB 2" untill they get an easily findable answer, ie. as a Sticky topic on the forum. But it must be perfectly clear, what they will find in it.

You're probably the first person who'se ever added "with success" after "he's just trying to be funny"

Glad to know my sense of humour isn't lost on everyone.

(edit)P.S.- about the "how do I install beta 1" thing- the instructions are there, in a sticky. So yeah, it's sort of obvious. But it is pretty obvious that this is a beta... we could re-enforce that this is indeed a BETA release, in fact the first release of everything, and that there's no dipping of toes in the water, it's off the high dive or in the snack bar. (Good analogy, right?)
