Solved Changing Forum Version and Template Editing

Post by Chelly on March 2nd 2017, 12:16 am

Hey,

I'm pretty sure this is the right section for this, but if not, please move it to the correct one and apologies ahead of time!

I am apart of a forum that is currently version phpbb2. The reason why we haven't changed to a different version is because in the past, we were told that template editing was only available for phpbb2 and punbb.

We are thinking of possibly changing it to phpbb3 or invision. I changed the version on our test forum and the templates were still there. Has template editing been added to all 4 current version options?

@Draxion: Thanks!

@Sir Chivas: Thanks, but I already know how to modify the templates!

One last question regarding this. What is the difference between using different versions? I switched back and forth and I don't really notice any changes at all besides a bar that shows up at the bottom of the forum. Are there benefits to using one or the other? If there's a topic that explains this, please excuse my ignorance. I'd love to be directed to it!
