Congrats guys, I didn't get a chance to play about with B1 much, but maybe I can check out B2 :)

It will be a few days before I get a chance to play with it, but I'm sure it will be great. Well done.

Incredible mod. I think this mod should be put on the php core. This will make mods a lot easier to install.

PHP is not phpBB ;) Asides phpBB 3.0 is feature frozen, something as large as AutoMOD would not be added.

It would be nice to see some teams work on a stable somewhat modded version, that includes some great mods like AutoMod.. and perhaps some other great mods.. I could name a few, perhaps chats.. auto groups.. for after x-warnings = group ban..

Although I like how phpBB3 added some mods that were in phpBB2.. I can't even talk about phpBB2.. it's been so long, at least it feels like it.. I can't even remember all I know is phpBB3 is great ;)

I think that you're missing the point somewhat. AutoMOD makes it possible for users to quickly installs MODs themselves. A fork with a bunch of preinstalled MODs would be against the spirit of what AutoMOD allows people to do.

Newbie question here... well I've been using phpbb for about 7 years so I should probably know the answer :oops: I used to use mods in the phpbb2 days but every time I upgraded it became too much of a pain to do file-comparisons on nearly every file and make sure things worked in the new version. Anyway...

Will AutoMOD ever be part of a vanilla phpBB release? I can see value in it being incorporated into the base phpbb package.

I have very little interest in mods because upgrades tend to make mods break or no longer work. Is this still the case in phpbb3 and will automod help in any way with the upgrade of mods?

p.s. The new auto update on phpbb3 absolutely rocks! I have a bunch of phpbb forums and the old upgrade process is fresh in my memory...
