Move from PHBB3 to IPB?

Post by Nord Belka on Fri Jan 02, 2015 3:01 am

After some mild research, I realized we are using an outdated forum platform. Apparently IPB is better? Perhaps one of you uber techies can explain it better, but from what I understand; IPB has a very user friendly interface. Also, changing to this new forum type wouldn't require much work, which is always a plus. I will include a poll to this... Stay PHBB3 or move to IPB? Go!

If you can work out your own hosting and domain, I can provide y'all with a much better IPB framework that we use at DT. This site uses IPB2 which is actually pretty outdated as well since we use IPB3 (I need to upgrade to IPB4 though). Plus it looks so much better and isn't gimped like this version seems to be. Just think about what y'all want to do.

Can your suggested IPB framework work with forumotion? I like your forums, they are slick... is it the same that Sengoku uses as well?

Only if you have FTP access and can create and manage a MySQL database.... And if they have fully updated php, JavaScript, and SQL.

Though if you get your own hosting/domain, you won't have ads.

We don't have ads now, only for unregistered people. It appears that I have access to create javascript, but nothing for MYSQL or ftp Sad

You shouldn't... That's terrible! There should be no ads, I've never seen one on the computer...

How can we get a free forum that is IPB3 or 4 that is also free and relatively ad free? I'd also prefer to keep something similar to this theme, or improved. Is this a tough order to fill without paying?

Yea ur not gonna find a free option with all those things..... Though if ur free, then I've always seen good things out of phpbb forums. But honestly, talk to starcraftmazter, he can hook you up with domains and hosting on the cheap.
