New Style needed

Post by whasf » Sun May 27, 2018 12:25 pm

With the major update to the forums, it made our long-standing eTech style obsolete, and it is no longer maintained. So we need a new one! Suggestions are highly welcome, as this SoftBlue suckssssss.

I'm a big fan of WPForo...but highly doubt this is built on a WP framework.

Sure is clean, but wouldn't be that simple to port over to though. I imagine you'll be opting for a phpBB style to avoid all the queries and migrations needed.

Actually, it would probably save you a lot of work in the long run. WP Foro is really easy to maintain and customize and Wordpress itself has a lot better tools to block spammers, which is one of the things this forum is deals with occasionally.

phpBB had it's run, but it's pretty dated imo.

He's not looking to abandon the software, or I'd beg him to switch to Simple machines Forum. Got a nice converter tool and themes set up to look like what he already had and better antispam and I don't hate it and ..and.. >.> cough anyways..

Whasf do you have any logs from our IRC days? I think I remember linking you some themes that looked similar to what you had except they worked on newer phpbb.
