New MOD Development Topics

Filed under: phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 7:45 am CommentsComments (3) 

I got mixed responses to this post a bit ago when I asked about future phpBB2 MOD releases. I realize that based on site statistics there are more than three people that read my blog, even if there are not that many that leave comments. :lol: After thinking about it I decided to go ahead and solicit feedback from the much broader audience at phpbb.com.

As a result I currently have two [DEV] topics open. A topic marked [DEV] does not have any code attached; it’s supposed to be a way to get feedback and ideas from the community. So far the response has been … underwhelming. :) I don’t mean that the responses I got were bad (they were quite good) but that the number of responses has been low. This is probably understandable given that I posted in the phpBB2 MOD Development forum. ;-)

[DEV] Mark Topic Unsearchable

[DEV] Post Notes

I don’t think this is a surprise that the general community is moving towards phpBB3. Many folks that are planning to stay on phpBB2 are probably more interested in seeing existing MODs upgraded to version 3 so they can also upgrade… rather than adding still more “new” features to their phpBB2 boards. We’ll have to see how things go.


  1. I’ve been reading your blog entries, but haven’t posted any comments because I’m not so interested in auth by post count. As for phpBB3, I feel like I’ve said this some times, but I’ll say it again: if I started a new site, I would use it, but I am sticking with 2 for now. :)

  2. I think the primary question was answered by Neothermic’s post this morning. It’s not a surprise, certainly everyone had to know this was coming at some point. I’m still thinking about what it means longer term for me, but for the short term I think the answer is obvious. No more MOD development for 2.x for me at phpbb.com. :)

  3. Hi again,

    I’m sure these two MODs will be an extra reason for people to stick with phpBB2 for quite some time to come, including myself.

    I consider it logical that you don´t receive much response, for starters the MOD dev forum never has seen lots of traffic and many people are busy checking out phpBB3 right now. Hopefully many of them will discover that it’s so diferent from phpBB2 that they end up deciding they’d rather stick with what they have, know and like for the time being.
