Any thought to migrating from phpBB to Discourse?
« on: December 08, 2022, 12:27:32 am »
Have the mods ever considered updating this forum from phpBB to Discourse? It has a pretty thorough importer, and Discourse is a much more modern, easier to use, and more fluent app for discussions. It supports Markdown, drag-and-drop of inline images, great mobile app, and more.

This forum is Simple Machines Forum not phpBB.
I told my friends I could teach them to be funny, but they all just laughed at me.

And, good god, not Discourse, of all the crappy softwares.
That looses the way a forum works completetely. There are better software available that can keep the look and feel, and still offer all the things you list.

But i would not get my hopes up, there was a recent discussion about fixing the attachement system. I mentioned XenForo, but that suggestion was not well received :D
Even though XenForo can keep the classic forum look and feel. And it even works great on mobile, without needing any superfluous apps.

Go and read the previous discussions about this subject.

Come back after that.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
