Hello Again

Post by Keith W » Thu Feb 15, 2018 4:50 am

Hi All,

Well it has been a long old while since I last posted on the forum, March 2011 going by the forum stats.

There are various reasons why I have not been around, no longer running a forum myself and general life stuff being the main ones (I wont bore you with the rest)

The reason I have wondered back to these parts? Well I am in the planing stages of setting up a website which will have a forum as a part of it and I intend, of course, to use phpBB as my forum software of choice.

I am hoping things have not changed to drastically since I last played with the forum software, I am sure I will be rusty on some aspects but I know there are still some great people here willing to help and offer assistance.

Well tha'ts me for now.

All the best,

Keith

Well yes and no.

Since you last used phpBB, which would appear to be version 3.0, phpBB has undergone a major upgrade to version 3.2 (via 3.1) - the most significant change being that MODs are not used anymore and have been replaced by extensions. Having said that the basic operation and board management are basically the same as they were in version 3.0

Well I have installed my forum, took me a fair few hours and I still have some more to do.

Stuff is slowly coming back to me as I potter around the admin panel, I just hope I am doing everything right, time will tell I guess :lol:

Have been noticing a few names on here from days of old, good to see you still here guys
