phpBB – Is it good

  • # October 29, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    This is probably a direct question for Chris but I will be launching a forum shortly and noticed that your forum is powered by phpBB, I guess I just wanted to know if you have had any problems or issues with styling and get it to look how you wanted.

    Any feedback would be great

    What you are looking at is pretty much a totally raw installation of phpBB 3. All I did is wrap my skin around it and that’s it. It’s been alright, although even with the CAPTCHA quite a bit of spam gets through. It definitely has some quirks. I’ve managed to completely bork it before trying to upgrade and by the skin of my ass I saved it. Now some admin functions just totally hang, and I have to reload to fix it (hard to explain). Another issue is that the email notifications never have worked (which sucks). Another issue is that the search kinda sucks… Ha. I guess that’s a lot of problems. But still I feel overall it’s pretty nice.

    Yeah well thanks for the feedback, you should at least be happy with the overall look of it tho, after doing some more scratching I have decided to go with vBulletin.
