New Message Board System

Post by Uncle Jesse » Fri Oct 22, 2004 10:10 am

Here it is! I still have a lot to do as far as setup and adding styles but I much prefer PHPBB to UBBThreads. More features and I believe people will prefer it to the old boards very quickly.

Lots of options, will take some time to get the hang of it. I think I like it.
Lets see if anon can post.

I like this style board of the ones that I post on, it seems to be the most user friendly. Good luck bringing over the posts from the old board.

mmmm..... I've used this exact board on a couple of my clients sites (I do websites & hosting) and it's ok but .... one of my favourite features on the old board was the 'posts in past 24 hours'. I always went there to see what was new.

I'm fairly certain this board does not have that facility and I'll miss it. I also think that members might find the image posting somewhat alien.

can you change the anon name from guest to the regular anon, i got used to it and it sort of makes them feel more obligated to registering

The board seems to be faster. Will need to check it out further before I can offer an opinion.

One thing that I would really like to see transfered here are all of the old recipes. There were some really good ones,

There are pros and cons to any system. This message board does not support threaded message viewing either. The authors of PHPBB consider it a waste of time. PHPBB is free and secure, however, and I like that. UBBThreads can keep their dream of $200/year from me.

:P Hey everyone is a newbie now!!! I like it! I do wish I could have read more of the older posts. I think I got thru about 75% of them anyway.

I like the stats the board gives on the percentage of posts you make as well as your posts per day...
3.45% of total / 1.33 posts per day

Also the new styles are nice....I personally like "Electra". Of course, I've got the image on top with elektra is annoying so I have it ad blocked.

You still can. The old forum is still in the same place it always was (for now, anyway).
