Solved phpbb3 vs phpbb2

Post by ecatodarcus on August 26th 2010, 10:12 pm

Hello

my forum is carrently in phpbb2 but after i was hacked once i thought that it would be better to update to pdpbb3 because some guys told me that this is safer.

Is that true? Will my forum be more secured with phpbb3?

thank you in advance

I wouldn't see why it would be "safer" it is just a version.

phpbb2 is way better in my opinion because you can template edit.

so you say there are no security reasons only how it shows??

some phpbb3 themes are great but the problem with the template edit is something you have to thinkbefore changing version.

Well I could be wrong.. I am personally saying I don't see there being a difference. Wait for someone else to reply.

There's not much of a difference. 90% of the time when you get hacked it has nothing to do with Forumotion, it's just the carelessness of an administrator entering information in the wrong place or opening links malicious sites.

My point is having phpBB3 wouldn't have prevented you from being hacked.
