Well, I was a month behind the official release, but it looks like they have finally released a stable version of phpbb3 and now comes the fun part - seeing if I can actually, successfully, install this. I have everything required for the new version, in terms of backend, so as long as I do it right it should work. I'll be reading over all the install information to see just what I am going to need to do, and it will hopefully be pretty straightforward.

Now, I do not yet know about all the changes that are present in the new version. Given that I am running some mods on this one, things such as the [youtube][/youtube] tags may not work anymore, etc. That shouldn't be too big of a problem though, and will hopefully be the worst problem that arises. (The new version may have incorporated the youtube tags and such, so it could be fine).

The subportal skin will probably be gone, and the subsilver, or some other standard skin, will be in its place. I should be able to add more skins after the new version is installed, but it will be different.

Also, whenever I do tackle the install I will probably have to disallow posting on the forum, so be aware that this will be coming at some point and I'll post here when I am going to do so.

Then make a big announcement "Forum closed due to upgrade work in (given date)".
Shouldn't be a problem.

You make a backup before doing anything funny, right? :D

lol, yes indeed. I typically make a backup of the forum every week, just in general, but I will make sure to do so before trying to change it over. So that, if nothing else, I can always just restore the current version to how it is.
