phpbb2 or phpbb3

Post by Ratt »

Will the security of phpbb 2 still be updated and continued for those that may not want to use the new phpbb3?Since phpbb3 is entirely different than that of phpbb2, some may feel more comfortable and/or even rather continue to use phpbb2 rather than upgrade to phpbb3.

phpBB2 will have its support continued after the release of 3.0.x (at least, and possibly 3.x, although I don't know about that), which means security fixes will be made as necassary :)

I think the biggest reason why phpbb (especially olympus) is streets ahead of any other board...

The mod validation system thing! There are so many supported mods for phpbb and then loads of unsupported mods. But the supported mods thing is great. It means you can install a board and know that you'll be able to get support for it, AND the modifications!

What kind of functionality does IPB or VB have that olympus doesn't? Apart from things like "quick reply" which they actually don't want?

Look at this list, google "IPB Features" and "vB Features", educate yourself and please - for the love of whoever you are praying to - don't discuss it here. ;)
