I had a friend who was a professional assembler coder, and a bloody good one at that, back in 1982-ish, I learned tons from him and I carried on with different codes until this day. Assembler is a very powerful language, a dot or a comma in the wrong place and "BOOM" your PC is locked up and needs restarting, CTRL ALT DEL doesn't work in situations like that. The only place back in the day to get help was college, telephone/compuserve, books or your friends etc. These days anything you want to know, programming wise, is available via Google. If you really want to learn PHP research the subject using your favourite search engine, there are hundreds of sites out there dealing with professionals and hobbyists alike on whatever type of coding you're interested in. I don't profess to be a PHP coder but I can get by because I playedmals69 wrote:How did you learn php and resources you used ?

just to be clear. you do not need to know any programming languages to be able to use phpbb bulletin board software. you don't even need to know html/css
you can install any and all MODs/extensions/styles etc. without knowing any programming.
if you can follow instructions and can copy/paste and use ftp then that is all you need to be able to use/customize phpbb to your liking.
