Isn’t the PHPBB structure completely different than the RForum
Yes. Converting “in place” won’t work, but that’s completely
unnecessary. You just have to write a script that iterates over all
forums, topics and posts in the phpBB database and inserts them in the
RForum database. Really no big deal, even if phpBB has ugly table
As far as RForum vs. PHPBB goes, can you think of any major features
that are missing besides Private messaging?
A lot of small gimmicks that phpBB has are missing in RForum, but I
can’t think of any major features. Post markup formatting maybe, but
that is trivial to implement (one-liner).
I will try intalling it this weekend on a test machine and see if I can
get things converted. I’m primarily sick of PHPBB because of all of the
security problems I have to patch against. The code looks like
spaghetti, and it’s nearly impossible to figure out what’s going on in
it when I want to make changes.
That’s the problem with most forum softwares I tried. But phpBB is
probably the worst.
