Ah I see, considering the complexity of the template, (well, calling it a template is belittling really, you've come close to creating something like a CMS really) the core edits are minimal, very impressive indeed.

Hehe thx, but PBWoW is definetely not a CMS. Neither is phpBB. But it's nice to see other people pick it up as part of WoW website packages 'n stuff (as long as they leave the credits :lol:).

Also, you guys might wanna know that PBWoW Beta 4 will require phpBB 3.0.3 so I cannot release it untill 3.0.3 releases. I've been working with 3.0.3 builds for the last weeks now.
For more on what, where, how and why look here: http://pbwow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=284

Started adding the brand new Battle.net forum skin to PBWoW.

Link to official forum: http://forums.battle.net/index.html?sid=3000

You can preview it at http://pbwow.com/forum/index.php and select PBWoW Battle.net in the styleswitcher. It's nowhere near finished yet but it's coming along nicely.

For those of you sending me PM's and emails about Beta 4 and other new features. Please be patient. I have to wait for phpBB 3.0.3 too. We need to wait for it because I cannot release modifications based on unreleased svn files. Beta 4 needs 3.0.3 and therefor I cannot release any updates at the moment.

If you can... wait for phpBB 3.0.3 and get PBWoW Beta 4. It will all be much easier to install. Beta 3 is much harder to install than Beta 4.

If you really cannot wait. Head over to http://pbwow.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=268 and sign up. Download the readme and install PBWoW. The Diablo theme is included and is installed together with the other themes.

No one knows exactly but it's very probable that it's going to be released this year.

Yes, I updated the starting post of this thread, you might want to read it.

And are you know when is the release date of 3.0.3.Thanks again and have a nice day! 8-)
Well not really but this post is interesting.

December 13, 2007 - 3.0.0 released
April 7, 2008 - 3.0.1 released (4 months later)
July 10, 2008 - 3.0.2 released (3 months later)

We are almost at 3 months, so if trends continue we might see 3.0.3 between October 10th and November 10th.

PayBas , Nice Theme, but i am little confused. Well, can this theme just be used like another theme? I have about 7 skins in my forum and also would like to have this as a great WOW theme....so can people simply install the skin and not host it as a site or what ever...just want to be clear..not a rookie thou ;)

so i can install it with the mods and stuff and i will get all the themes plus the default and can be changed from my theme changer mod or some thing like that aye ?

Yes, although the installation of Beta 3 is very different from other (normal) styles, it can work alongside them easily. The PBWoW mods should not pose a problem for any other styles.

However, some of the styleswitching features you can see in the starting post are for Beta 4 only. My advise to you: If you are running a somewhat bigger board and use multiple styles besides PBWoW then I suggest you wait for Beta 4 which is a lot more "admin friendly".

Hard to say. I am guessing November 15th. And I base that on absolutely nothing :mrgreen:.

As soon as phpBB 3.0.3 comes out I will have to check all my mods and templates to see if things can be optimized and improved given the new code. I've somewhat been keeping an eye on the SVN of 3.0.3 and the changes don't seem to be huge. At least not for my personal mods.

So, depending on how busy I'll be by the time 3.0.3 comes out, we should be seeing Beta 4 about 2-5 days afterwards.

@Paybas.

I just wanted to know..mainly i need this great WOW theme for the WoW players of my forum at forums.tomorrowsgaming.com have a look and you can see we have a skinchanger thing there..so people who dont like a skin can use this skin..

I dont need much Admin stuff and quite well known with phpbb...so if i install this style now or for the people who installed this now can they update it later on with bb3.3 is released and beta 4 is out ?? because i want to install it now..
