Will I lose anything if I change versions (excluding custom coding)?

Post by InnerSolace on January 30th 2012, 1:29 pm

So, I'm here to ask if I will lose anything major if I change from phpBB2 to phpBB3. By "major," I mean members, background, logo/banner, general appearance design, etc. I know that there is an option to keep your current style when you switch versions, but I am just wondering if there is anything at all that will be lost. Will I lose any of my stored pictures that I've used for things like topic/forum buttons/icons? Do the losses only apply to changes that you've made in the template or CSS? Just how extensive are the losses?

I wasn't sure whether to post this in the Design & Appearance section or the Administration Panel section. I would also like to say that I've used the search function quite a few times and haven't found many topics with a similar problem to mine. There was one, but the detail given was very miniscule. I also checked the Frequently Asked Questions topic but couldn't find anything too informative on this. I'm sorry if this has been asked before.

Any help is appreciated.
