I just made the change from IPB 1.3.1 to phpBB over the last two weeks. I'd been running an incarnation of IPB since pre-2002.....so changing was a big thing.
To my surprise, once making some progress on the learning curve, I had most of the mods I wanted installed in about 20 minutes. The forum has been quite helpful for the odd question I needed answered, and, by and large, my new site has been awesome!
I was very encouraged to see the framework that has been implemented for mods as well as the clear warnings from support that some mods make so many changes my forum would not be supported. Lots of great things here but these are just a few that come to mind.
Thank you! Thank you very much!
