Why did I, or anyone else for that matter, bother downloading the newest board version when all the extensions that make the board simple and fun are simply not available?
My board sits idle while I search everywhere for compatible extensions that will make this board our home.
That is a very strange way of putting things. You may have doubts about downloading phpbb yourself, but the statement that others have had to "bother", or that it's the extensions that make the board simple and fun, sounds a bit one-sided. I was always under the impression that the people made it fun.
And I can't help feeling it was a stupid question, but I see no way around it; if I'd downloaded 3.0 I'd have long since made an easy to use, comfortable board out of it with what is available. Anywhere care to set me straight?
3.0 is a previous generation and no more support is given. Using it now is comparable to still using Windows XP. It works but if any problems occur, you're on your own and don't even think about refunds.
Also, 3.0 does not have any plugin-system so modifications would have to be done by hand (unless you find something made for automod)
Anyway, why even bother to mention 3.0 as even 3.1 is nearing EOL.
Currently focus should be on 3.2, and if you can't find a ready made extension to your needs (or one still in development status), there's still the request area.
