What is the difference between PHPBB2 and PHPBB3?

Post by Flamin on May 16th 2010, 11:54 pm

Well the question is basically said in the title. But what exactly are the differences between the two. And what are the advantages and disadvantages? Which one is better? Which one has more features? Which one has more customization? Which one is easier to customize? etc....

I prefer phpBB3 although it doesn't allow template editing ( like phpBB2 ) , TT

Useful Guide => http://help.forumotion.com/tricks-tips-f32/forum-versions-t50776.htm

And, about your advantages or disadvantages question...
It depends on what you know and how you use that knowledge and apply it to your forum's version, Very good

Yes I did read the link about different versions, but it didn't answer my questions.

Here is my forum: http://legendaryalliance.forumotion.net/index.htm
I have not edited or added in anymore templates that I know of, how would changing from phpbb2 to phpbb3 effect my forum?

And if I switched to phpbb3, would I still be able to use this theme:
Duel Academy V2

Please someone answer these questions. Also where is the thanks button? I have enabled it along with the points system and the reputation system.
