A combination of phpBB2 & phpBB3

Post by Guest on July 27th 2010, 8:13 pm

Hello,

I want to know if its possible to combined some aspects of the forums layout of phpBB2 and phpBB3.
For example, on phpBB2, the forum layout is different, you can see it has a column that says "author", also it has 2 separate columns for the 'Post/forum/category Icon' and another for the 'Topic Icon'. However on phpBB3, all of the icons overlap each other and there is no column that indicates the author of the post, only directly below the post itself, making it look a bit cluttered.

phpBB3 however, looks much better when viewing post. The "quote" box looks better in phpBB3, it stands out more, the 'Online' icon displays in a more noticeable area, and all of the profile fields remain inside the profile post, while on phpBB2, the contact information for each user ends up underneath each post, i dont like that.

Is there any way I can make my phpBB3 have some areas of the forum layout in phpBB2?

I don't think it's possible. But yeah, modifying phpBB2 would work.

i hate the way the post are set up inside the topics of phpBB2. However, I have it set up perfectly the way I want it on phpBB3. The only thing I want from phpBB2 is the way the topics are set up, by showing the author.. separating the icons.. that stuff.. If i switch to phpBB2, their is going to be toooo much modifying involved when all I want from phpBB2 is that one thing.

Hello,

The only way is to choose phpBB2 and modify it to look like phpBB3. There is going to be much work with templates and css.
