I didn't like the default theme at all, so I loaded the alternative. I have yet to get around to playing with the looks of that much, but I have yet to have any issues with it and it seems to work very well. I haven't used phpbb2 in a while (as an admin) so I really cant state the differences.

Put up a copy of it here (don't post anything important in it, it will be lost..)

Agree, the default theme is to color-rich for my taste. ;)

Don't keep default 100% width. 90-80% is always better view/readable (to me at least ;))

I tried it for a while but it kept spiking the CPU on Windows 2003 Web server. I did a few searches on the phpbb support forums and found a lot people saying that the fix is to run it on Linux. If you are running a linux web server, I'd say go for it. If not, try something like Simple Machines Forum (http://www.simplemachines.org/). I was able to import all of my phpBB content and users to SMF and it isn't spiking the CPU on my web server.

I think that's good if I just remove all the unnecessary (?) parts from it (such as "last visit", "current time", "All times are UTC + 1", "birthdays", "newest member" and so on). I will also remove the gray area in the top...

Looks better :)
BTW SMF really rocks. Conversion from PHPBB shouldn't be an issue too. It's worth to give a try IMHO.

I believe you.. the thing is that I have little time and even if learning a new forum system doesn't take a lot of time it still takes some.. :) So for now I think I'll stick to PHPBB which I'm used to. If maintaining PHPBB3 is just as much work as PHPBB2 I'll probably switch sooner or later. =)

phppb3 seems al ok to me Martin. Hust a little different but from speed it loads a topic much faster and smoother then version 2.

I like most new things and its just getting used to it.

took a while to find the "mark all posts read" but its there on the rhs top area. it had to be somewhere.

thanks for the work.
