First topic message reminder :

I'm thinking of setting up another forum and I don't know which format to start it off with. Now we have some new updates, are there more advantages to using Invision?

I prefer to use, punBB. You're able to edit and do more with the templates and themes. Meaning less CSS. Razz

But Sanket, if you prefer PhpBB3 then why did you make webartzforum to be punbb?

After using PHPBB2 for 6 years I finally made the switch over to PHPBB3. But that's only because I found this ONE theme that I liked for my new forum. PHPBB2 just seemed tired out and over-used. Kind of old and clunky. PHPBB3 and PunBB are two of my favorites at the moment.

To the contrary phpbb2 is the most 'unstable' template of all the forum versions because it uses tables for its template. phpbb2 is the most UN-advanced of all the versions because of this fact. Using tables as a main template for a site is considered a "no-no" to web designers and developers throughout the world. phpbb2 was not created with the smartest of intentions, because anyone doing so would not use table coding as a template for a site. Table coding was originally devolved for laying out tabular data or other information not entire templates for a site. Tables are being used less and less for page layouts as each year passes because they are learning to use CSS and other codes designed to do the job more efficiently. Sorry to rain on your parade for phpbb2 but those are the facts. The members that do not use phpbb2 can take pleasure from this knowledge.

runway , the phpBB2 is very stable with styles , it's very hard to find more bugs with phpBB2 , here you play only with the width , don't edit the position , margins or something like that , for me the phpBB2 version is very hard but probably the best , I had only one theme on phpBB2 and no bug found in any resolution.

I'm glad that you personally had a nice experience with phpbb2, but that doesn't diminish the facts that I just stated. I know many good designers and developers that support what I just said, and would disagree with your analogy whole-hardheartedly.
