I am a SimpleMachines forum owner for almost a decade. I have my likes and dislikes about this piece of well coded software and I noticed by opening phpbb.com and then demo that a lot of options I find a requirement are already there, however I have questions.
a. Is it possible to import a smf 1.x database that has been upgraded to 2.0.15
b. If so, what to do with passwords? I noticed I can't use special characters in the password I required to give to my newbie account.
c. Is phpBB phone friendly? I can not use smf 2.1 (phone friendly) since there is no database import guarantee
d. Is there a reliable (in the sense of images are forever) solution for people that not know or want to learn BBCode that involves posting images from phone? It's not really easy with smf 2.0 something like postimage.org plugin
e. Where do I start css coding? I really want to customize my forum fully.
f. Can all fonts be changed easy? For example fonts from google to make it smashing nowadays look?
g. Is phpBB foolproof like having an option moderators can delete posts but actually send it to a digital bin?
I really have more questions but I think for starters seven is already enough.
Please keep in mind I'll take 100% responsibillity (as it should) that if Im told database import works and it doesn't, i'll be able to find support, I will test on a non live server, I'm a Linux user,
