phpbb2 to Phpbb3 (Question)

Post by bringer »

How would I make a phpbb2 template work with Phpbb3? What would I have to change? Also would I have to redo the style for it?

You could use the images, if you rename them. But 2.0.x styles will not be compatible with 3.0.x.

I figured I could use the images. But is there a way to keep the same look and feel and just make minor changes to the scripts or whatever?

No, the CSS is totally different and the are many more template files. You'll have to redo it manually.

So a template i had from eXtremePixels.com for phpbb2 wouldn't work or would just take to much work to get it to work with phpbb3?

It wouldn't work at all. You'd have to start from scratch and recreate the style.

Whadayamean boo hoo? PHPBB3 was almost totally recreated. That's like when people say "Why don't gameboy color games work on the ds? Gameboy advanced games do. They both fit in the same size slot."
