phpBB 3 looks NOTHING like IPB 1.3 or 2.0
Well maybe here and there like seperating anouncements and stickies and normal posts. The UCP is completely different.
The ACP is a little more complex in 3.0 but its still nothing like IPB.

Lastly, IPB does not suck.
Its just to complex for you. You get used to it.
Where did you see what 3 look like?

You're using 2.1 as we speak, which is the development code for version 3.0. However, the new style for 3.0 will not be released until the GM release of 3.0.

So why do so many people seem to know what it looks like? Also if phpBB is open source, how are people to be able to add to that, if they can not view that source or even see what is already in the works?

1. because its still in development.
2. you can see it, just check out the snapshots/cvs[/quote]

btw, you can compare IPB and phpBB for OS? im sure phpBB will be a lot more.. open. also i recognise some phpBB coding in IPB. so that alone proves its OS.

Dear Moderator;

Any general idea would be nice. I'm holding off on publishing my forum until the Olympus release.

just wait like the rest of us, the time will come.

P.S. what about installing a 2.0.11 board and upgrading it to Olympus when it gets released?

Wait like we did for the revamp of phpbb that was announced two years ago.

I'm not angry with ya Uchiha Nick, just confused.
