I've always had a love/hate relationship with phpBB up until the 3.0 series. However, when I learned about the new extension approach some time ago it turned into a massive (one-sided
) love fest for me. Hadn't even tried it by then, but one could see the promise of it.
Having made the switch last month I can say it has lived well up to expectation and then some! The time I'm gonna save doing various upgrading, maintenance and troubleshooting "shit" is going to be considerable.
So here I am to say Thank You
to the phpBB team, every single one of you.
Well done, well done indeed.
