what is your site's url?
what mods did you add on?
are you on phpBB 2 or 3?
www.digitalhijinx.com also www.route66wingsandwheels.com
fuck loads of mods to both sites ... if I had to guess, probably 20 - 30 different mods and lots of custom tweaks to both sites ...
I'm on 2 I installed 3 and was working on getting a portal to work the way I wanted ...
it looks nice.
i'm trying to finish up on my forum (phpBB3) just have to add a few things here and there
only thing that confuses is me is i use a different skin (hestia) and it's hard sometimes to get the prosilver codes to match w/ hestia - and vice versa. know what i mean?

I just setup a board with phpBB2. In what ways is it inferior to vbullletin?
I read somewhere that its easier to spam?
In default setup it is ... there are dickloads of PHPBB anti spam scripts. I have a visual captcha, user based authentication, I deny registration if stuff is entered but not on the registration form (website and signature being one of them), on one of the sites I made the default -12 time zone a "spam bot" setting", basically if you sign up and select that you are a bot cause it clearly says so in the form!! And finally I delete accounts and posts of users that post links on their first post. I have 0 spam now. Every now and then I get obvious spam bot sign ups but they don't ever post, 0 post accounts get purged bi-weekly. Works pretty well ... it will catch a new user every so often but it's rare since it tells you to NOT post a link on your intro post.
Yeah any theme that isn't prosilver based will start to get like that. Same thing with non subsilver based in PHPBB2 ... it's usually easy to adapt them though.
why didnt u just use phpBB3?
just got it installed, have not modded it or set it up yet for my site
wow, the modded ones look fucking sick!
can someone dumb it down, as to whats involved in doing a mod?
copy files over top of the default files
site to get some good looking templates for free for phpbb2
think baseball or blue/orange type themes
and i am looking at phpbbhacks right now, so other sites besides this one
