    Question a few phpBB questions...

    ok peeps, i was just wondering if any of you could help me...

    i installed phpBB V1.40 a while ago and realised it didnt have all the features that i wanted so i started to mod the board but there are still 2 things that i would like to be included on my board but i cant spare the time to implement these things properly and test them etc plus i am still pretty new to PHP. The things i am looking for are:

    the ability to add polls to topics

    the ability for users to add there own avatar to be displayed under their names in posts

    the ability to allow a user to change their own personal rank

    a JS popup when a private message is recieved


    there are other things i'd like to add but i cant think of them at the moment so if anyone knows of any mods or can post the code and whatever else then i would be very very greatful

    and also does anyone know where i can find some decent smilies? Preferably ones that look more 3D ( eg. not )

    thanks in advance for any replies

    PS my board is here

    Re: a few phpBB questions...

    First, I shall say install 1.4.4, as 1.4.0 is the devil, security wise, anyway. Good phpBB Hacks/Mod site and another one. I believe they have all of the hacks you mention. I know there's an avatar hack, and I think I saw a poll hack in beta, methinks. The others are pretty easy (JS popup PM and user-defined rank).

    I find phpBB2 easier to edit, cause the whole thing is done with templates!!!

    I would say to go ahead and use phpBB RC1. If not, the mods sites mentioned (which one is mine ) are good. We are working on the new version of my site, when it is launched... it will be a lot better.

    Acutally, due to phpBB 2.0 code structure, and the use of templates its ALOT easier to customize and modify. The code is 100% cleaner..

    yup CHeeSeBLiND... wherever did u hear all those bad things about phpBB2??... IMHO, phpBB2 is the best currently the best out there and is definitely much much better that the phpBB you're using now...

    why not upgrade to phpBB2 and see? (there's an upgrade script)

    vBulletin 2.2.1 has that functionality. You should give it a look.

    Why not have a sample forum 1.4.0 and try experimenting upgrading it to 2.0 ??

    That'll answer all your fears about v2.0...

    I do not recommend this for a "live" site, as we are still working out some of the bugs and such. (thus the: RC status).



    However, if you just want to test it, debug it, and see what it can do, check out CVS: here !!
