Advise Please..

Post by Bl0ckH3ad » Tue Dec 30, 2008 12:59 am

sorry for the section Should be in phpbb3 general maybe?

I am trying to figure out where to go from here, I have had a bit of a battle converting smf to phpbb and combining 2 phpbb db's but I have gotten that done. I was planning on using nuke-evolution and integrating the forums into it but..
I was reading a post on their forum saying they are not going to be further developing it and phpbb 2x won't be developed past feb 09.

This leaves me wondering if I should even bother with nuke-evo.

So the question would be should I just upgrade to phpbb3x or continue with the evo thing?

I have had some issues with import into evo due to duplicate user records in my MYSql backup I think at least and that has led to fore mentioned post which sorta let the wind out of my sails a bit.

anyway any opinions and advise is welcome

The formal answer (when posted here at is that after tomorrow (31st December 2008) we will only be supporting phpBB3 versions.

So with that, I can only advise that if you wish to use phpBB forum software that you convert to the latest version of that product. (available from our downloads page).
