is there a way i can get a phpbb3 update package with the youtube mod, emff (mp3) mod, and the shoutbox mod already included?

also, if i convert my phpbb2 to phpbb3, and delete the phpbb2 directory and rename the phpbb3 directory to what the old one was, will the topics url still be the same? ex. if before i had www.blank.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2636 once i convert it to phpbb3 will the url be the same?

In phpBB you don't need a youtube MOD as you can handle those through custom BBCodes.
As for the package, we don't supply a preMODded package and it is advice to not use those as you'll only receive limited support for them here. Just upgrade to a vanilla phpBB installation and than add those MODs to that installation (if they exist)

Yes phpBB 3.0.x knows how to handle the phpBB 2.0.x URI schema.

In this topic, many Custom BBCodes you can use and how to implement them are mentioned. :)
