Post subject: phpbb2FM who is using this?

I'd like to know who elese here uses Fully Modded phpBB?
http://phpbb-fm.com/support/index_fm.php

I have installed it and have way too many hours into this at this point.

I have tested moving the users and posts from my highly MOD'd phpbb2 and that worked..

There are SO many MOD's, finding the settings can be just so frustrating sometimes. There is no decent documentation on the mods, I cant get to view the forum over there.. just keeps saying access denied.. I've emailed the admin there with no response.. even went so far as to donate thinking if I did I would be allowed access.. but nope..

So anyone here also using this in case I have some deep dark questions?

Well, I guess you can say we are using a "modded" phpbb2 - but one of our own creation. PHPBB2 is a great starting platform and has done well with our over 120mil posts after making a "few" changes.

I'd be curious if PHPBB3 could even come close under similar circumstances.

that particular phpbb2 premod was having many problems way before phpbb2 was abandoned. as far as I remember, many of the included MODs were never updated etc.

I don't think I would try to use it unless you know how to write the code needed to update some of those MODs.

plus, as you said, it has MANY MODs and you probably would not use most of them anyway.

might be much better to just MOD your own with only what you need.

Fully Modded just sounds like extra bloat to me. You should just pick the MODS you actually want to use and install them, in my opinion.

Salvatos,

Right now I don't like you very much! You really got me thinking that maybe indeed I should go and just tweak what I have now..

so now for the past 2 hours I have been going through mod lists.. whats in phpbbFM, what I have now, what I like in phpbbFM and what is in the huge 14MB download here, what is not and what I can find at either phpbb.com or at phpbbhacks.com

Its a LONG list and I really have been jumping all over.. so I need to back up and make better notes as to what I can find, what I cant, what I WANT, NEED and would like icon_smile.gif

My biggest one is the portal. My site is uber extensive now. I have been wanting for ages to pear it down and this portal in phpbbFM seems to work very well - but of course THAT one mod I can't find.

Any of you using a portal and which one? Do any of you know which portal the FM version uses? Does anyone have the ZIP file for it?

yea I'm probably gonna be a PITA for a while here while I regroup and make a decision to forge ahead with the FM or start tweaking the existing.

I started by using Smartor's ezPortal and then modded my way out of it. You can integrate pretty much anything into your forum with just a few functions.
