[ BETA ] Lo-fi board

Hello, my name is p4plus2 and i have currently set off to create a lo-fi version for phpbb that can be added to a board. Now, many people don't want just a blank board so to fix this problem I will be making a board that you can use WITH your current board! How you ask? I took the config file from a board and copied it to another board (on the same server) and the two boards will use the EXACT same place for storing and retrieving info, thus you get two boards acting as one. All i need to do now if remove certain things to make the lo-fi board faster.

The main reason I am doing this is there are still people who run on dial up which doesn't do so great with images (which some boards have tons of), certain MODS...etc...etc...

features the lo-fi board will have:

no pics at all(remove img bbcode so it'll just show link, remove avatars + random on-site pics)
remove signature
remove MODS(well thats done for me as this is a plain boards so it won't have any)
'easier' template(more plain)
and more!


demo board:TEMPORARILY OFFLINE(removing ability to change account password.)
account name:test
account password:123
download:here

Glitches in MOD that currently need fixed: IMG bbcode displaced weird code(uid)....working on a fix

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Things to come in the future versions:
auto redirect based on user set preference in there profile[ o% ]
better images
anything else I think of
random bug fix\other random changes

Hope you'll like it when its done!

Hey p4plus2!
How's going? Are you at a good point? I expect a lot from this mod :)
You know p4plus2, this mod can go either way, theres a chance for it to be very bad...if done wrong! However, theres a chance to do a fantastic job on this type of mod, and I hope that will be your case... :mrgreen:

Do you have any test board where we can look at the progress of this? :ugeek:
