Upgrade to phpBB version 3

Postby Fonant » 29 Jul 2008, 3:42pm

I am preparing for an upgrade of this forum's software to phpBB version 3 (we're currently using version 2).

While the forum will continue to work in much the same way as it does now, there are many minor improvements and changes.

If anyone would be interested in testing out the new software, and can spare some time to have a look around, I'd be most pleased to hear from them. The plan is to give a copy of the forum running phpBB 3 a good testing, so we can iron out any minor problems that might be caused by the upgrade.

OK, much time later, I think we're finally ready to move to phpBB3.

Quite a few minor problems needed ironing out, plus getting used to the new Admin interface. The move now also involves a newer, faster, web server :)

Current plan is to switch tomorrow morning, Saturday 28 Feb 2009, between 8:30 and 9:00am.
