    I switched to myBB but I didn't like the themes and all. Plus, I've noticed the amount of visitor dropped :x so I decided to revert back using a backup.

    But I don't plan to stay on SMF forever, I'm looking into IPB but gotta save up some money first.

    I have tried phpbb a couple of times and the mod and theme install have to the worst and the acp is confusing with the permissions.

    Yeah, these are the reasons people don't like phpBB, a shame the developers don't just revamp it.

    I know they are talking about adding a hook system to make installs easier.

    I hope they do but they are kinda late.

    SMF 2.0 already has this :x so does most of the other popular forum scripts I believe.

    Yeppers atleast myBB you just have to ftp the mods. I think they final realized that it was killing them.

    myBB, Xenforo, and I think even IPB and vB needs you to FTP the mod files/folder.

    That's why I love SMF to an extent, the mod and theme installation is SO SIMPLE!

    I've never been a fan of phpBB..

    Do you like it? can you perhaps write a review on phpBB for this forum at a later date?

    I could maybe write something up. I'm not too much a fan of it but one you get the hang of things is pretty decent.
