Switch to SMF from phpBB

(1/5) > >>


This is a brief post to let you know of our plans with the forum.  You might have hit the forum today when it was unaccessible... we were taking a snapshot of the database to run through the conversion process to switch from phpBB to SMF as we want to make sure all the posts and users migrate properly.

SMF is a very lean, easy to maintain and free forum with many themes.

You can read about it here: http://www.simplemachines.org/

Here is the page with themes: http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/

I welcome you to go look at the themes and post which ones you like.

Our tentative timeline is to complete the mock (edit: mach is the speed of sound -Trolan) setup this weekend where can review everything and ensure there are no problems from an administrative perspective.  Once that is complete we will setup a time to move the main forum at which point we will have to take a maintenance window of 1-2 hours where the forum is down while it is converted to the new software.

We have also made some plans for the main site, getting the forum to something easier to maintain and less spam bots is just the first step... :)



ooo la la

I second that ooo la la. That black one is not to bad either.


That green looks terrrrrrrible.
I saw a couple of blue/black ones that are nice.
But there are too many of them, didn't feel like going through all of them.
