I believe this was a poll before.

I may have a proposition for this site, but firstly, a poll.

Who wants to stick with phpBB, and who wants IPB?

Fully licensed, of course ;)

IPB, the admin/mod features are better.

and andy, why are you concerned about pirated IPB when you use a pirated copy of XP?

Because m$ don't give a crap about XP anymore. Plus I've used it for years, why change now?

And also because IPB look out for pirated copies more than M$ do.

When I asked last people would not donate money for IPB as they said phpBB was perfectly fine and free.

Maybe we should wait until phpBB3 is out and see how the mods tools compare on that and see if they meet our needs.

Its pretty much feature complete now anyway, so we might as well setup a test forum to try it out.

Might not be a bad idea... Ill look into it :)

Bear in mind I will copy the contents of this forum to phpBB3 so on the test forum any posts made will be lost eventually.

That would be good if you can set up a test phpBB3 forum. Different forum software suits different forums. IMO IPB or vBulletin would suit BA better than phpBB but thats probably because i like them better than phpBB :D

One thing you have to take into consideration is speed. IPB is relatively slow to render on any PC and it feels bloated compared to phpBB. Slow sites drive away more people than a site that looks bad.

Can vBulletin be added to the poll please?

Looking at the prices there is only $10 difference between an IPB standard licence and a vBulletin owned licence

I just set up a test forum at www.betaarchive.co.uk/phpbb3 but everything mod and admin side fails to work. I get errors all over. One reason changing to phpBB3 now would be pointless.

what i meant was what errors do you get, as these can be reported to the phpBB team

It tries to send a header() more than once when loading one page. Someone else will have reported the error already as its so plainly obvious.

If it was that blatantly obvious, I don't think it would have even got released as a testing version.

Maybe it had something to do with upgrading the phpbb2 database to phpbb3?

Thats probably it, try creating a new database and installing phpBB3 to there and see if you still get any errors

I looked into the multiple-header error in the file where the error occurs (The errors on the profile page).
This looks like an error in the message handler reporting errors, not an actual bug with headers...
functions.php wrote:
// application/xhtml+xml not used because of IE
header('Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8');

header('Cache-Control: private, no-cache="set-cookie"');
header('Expires: 0');
header('Pragma: no-cache');

AFAIK this is normal code...

You talk of slow forums & advertisements as being cause

your attitude is what would drive them away even more.

My attitude is fine thank you. The answer was in front of him but he did not read it properly. So I quoted and kindly asked him to learn how to read things before asking a question that has been answered.
