Yesterday I installed Thanks mod for phpBB3 (something like Reputation in IP.Board). Based on manual installation should be easy and should took about 10 minutes. I had to manually edit about 20 files and then resolve some fatal errors. After ONE hour I was completed.
Now I see how is really easy to install apps and mods for IP.Board. One hundred paid IP.Boards are much more better than one free phpBB board. Trust me. You (IPS team) do trully good job. IP.Board is really good solution for common users.
Recently I lost two hours of my life while I repaired one phpBB board after failed some mod installation. Two hours for one dirty mod!!!!
been there, really disliked phpbb modx
I never could get any mod to work, It was slow out of the gate and I thought the few install hints at the time were scratched out by a raccoon.... And some think IPB is confusing....
smf and ip are a lot alike this way.
with smf you can actually transfer the install files from their server to yours from the admin panel, but even if manually uploading the install process is similar.
ip hooks are lot different, and ip recovers from install error faster due to ability to quickly disable, but phpbb was horrible for me.
Nightmare at best... SMF? I think I still have one of the installs on an old now backup drive.... Was thinking about skinning them as well as IPB not sure why I let that idea go....
the smf aveva media mod actually works...can embed stuff using only the provided code other site gives.. :smile:
the blogs mod...not so good, overall ip is lot better but for free...smf is damn good.
