Your version of phpBB is getting harder to use on a mobile device and even on my Desktop, the layout is not 100% correct. I love DD-WRT and would love to see the site be updated (please).

I will personally pay, at my own cost, as a gift and donation to DD-WRT for a copy of WoltLab Burning Board (community and forum software).

They are soon to release 3.1 of their new suite which is currently at RC3 release. You can try it for free since they make available their betas for everyone as to get more feedback and bug fixing before the final version for their customers.

You can find more info here https://community.woltlab.com/thread/265775-woltlab-suite-3-1-rc-3-download/

Please give it some thought. I, again, would be willing to help pay for this.

I like it! Really!

But first, they have to check out whether the database between the old and new versions of PHPBB are compatible or not.... that they could just install the new version and everything just works. Smile

I suspect even the backend database software (possibly MySQL) might need an upgrade if not a switch to MariaDB. Newer versions of MySQL is no longer free.

As a part-time administrator, myself, I know the converter is compatible with phpBB 3.0.x and 3.1.x Upgrading this site from 2.0.x to 3.1.x would be fairly easy and from there you could convert to WoltLab.

Replacing MySQL to MariaDB would also be fairly simple.
