Just wanted to say I've been installing PHPBB for donkeys years and last year eff'd off to vBulletin.
Can't afford yet another license so installed PHPBB3 this morning.
After about 30 mins it's all up and running, forums installed/configured and moderators/admins all in place with permissions correct.
it's an absolute doddle.
Just configure group permissions and add the relevant people to the groups.
What could be easier.
Cheers to the team - awesome bit of kit
Love the editor too, saves me kicking up the ftp.
