Thank You For Making Extensions!

Post by rick5150 »

I have been using phpBB for a long time and this is the biggest improvement I can remember. The extensions are SO much easier - and way less time-consuming to use than hacking the code. A big Kudos to the phpBB team and everyone involved with developing 3.1, the styles and the extensions. Loving it!

Just wanted to say well done to all the team who worked on phpBB 3.1 .. Currently setting up a new forum with it and everything is a breeze !

I have used phpBB in the past but my current forum has been using vbulletin for the past 4 years. I have had nothing but problems with it and have been hacked several times. Setting up my new site with phpBB 3.1.3 has been brilliant.. The simplicity of the admin panel has been beyond belief after all this time using vbulletin which has so many useless admin setting...

Don`t usually post posts like this, but I`m happy to be back using phpBB :D

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 :lol: ) 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.

Old Timer revisits PHPBB

Post by Wraithslayer »

Short and sweet, I've been around boards since before most of the popular ones we have now existed. I remember PHPBB back in the day, it's come a long way and is truely impressive.

To all involved, well done indeed. Keep up the great work.

Thanks to everyone of phpbb team member. Phpbb is really a great forum with broad features. Everything is manageable from admin, its rare to do custom work for some functionality.

Keep it up :)

Cheer up and move ahead with lots more features in future.

Thank you very much for your hard work and make a better world. I play in my mind with other boards, but now i don't need. It's pretty cool, extensions are coming more and more. Easy to install that is what i like!

Big thanks from my crew also!

phpBB 3.1 Many Thanks. Who Can/Should We Donate To?

Post by BIABrewer »

First post here. I'm not one for joining forums but really wanted to post the following...

A mate of mine hosts my forum ( and until a few days ago, I had to ask him to do any backend changes as, whilst I don't think I am a computer dunce, compared to the type of people posting here, and my mate, I haven't even reached kindergarten :).

Three days ago, I managed to install phpBB 3.1 on our test site pretty much all on my own. To most of you, that might seem like nothing but to me, it is amazing. (If you look at my current site, the green one, you'll see why I am so excited!) I have added over 30 incredible extensions on the test site and for the first time I feel as though I can administer it without bothering others too much.

I have done a lot of reading and scouring of this forum and a few things worry me. The first is that some people ask questions here and many of you patiently answer them but don't even get an acknowledgement. I can't believe how many incredible extensions I have found but most posts in the discussion area seem to be from users just demanding more from those who have already so freely given. I don't get this. (On my forum we consciously have created a culture of respect which is fantastic but even there we sometimes get those demanding posts and it is a small percentage who actually chip in.)

My problem is that I would like to chip in here but am unsure as to how to go about it. I'm happy to chip in $200 immediately but do I donate it to this board or to some people that have made some amazing extensions?

The answer might be obvious to some but it is not obvious to me, someone who is very willing to donate a few hundred dollars even though this is about a year's Google income from my site :)).

Maybe a mod is needed so that a central donation point can be offered and a percentage of the donations given get distributed on to those who contribute most?

I really hope some answers are given here as 3.1 is a massive improvement. It has actually become an asset rather than a liability for people like me.

Many thanks,
