everything outside community/ is custom written, most of it in symfony, some really old pages as custom phpbb pages.
Would I be correct in assuming that symfony, out of the box, is not a content management system similar to wordpress and the like?
I vaguely recall long long ago different phpbb users developed what they called 'portals' to be used in conjunction with the core forum. At that time, I had no use for such things. And I want to be careful how I say this, but I found many of the designs somewhat cluttered if not impractical. So I left them alone. But time moves forward and I can imagine uses for things like this. Recently I heard the term 'premod' used in this connection too.
Regarding the ability to send messages, I'm unclear about what can and can't be done. I once looked at the documentation for developing extensions but at that time it was so over the top I wrote off the prospect. Maybe I'll have to revisit this idea.
Mean-time, I attempted to install the newest version of phpbb but got errors. I'll have to post about it in the appropriate spot.
Thanks all for your insights and interest.
