Does any one who uses ocPortal use phpbb?

I was just testing ocPortal 3.2 for Chris as I wanted to find all bugs and I found it does not work with phpbb 3 beta.
phpbb 3 is still beta so it might be that more then a problem with ocPortal.
Any way from what I can tell I do not know any one who uses phpbb.
Most all of my friends either use smf, ipb or ocf and those work with 3.2.
Lets see 5 of my friends use IPB either 1.3 or 2.2 and ocPortal.
Lets see 3 of my friends use ocf.
Lets see 2 of my friends use smf.
Then I have a few friends that use invisionfree but that I know does not work with ocPortal.
I also have a lot of friends who only use IPB and no portal system.

None of my friends like phpbb and I myself find it to be an awful system, to me ocf is 10 times better then that.

Any way I am just wondering if any one still uses it.


I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Hi Amy! Sorry, I don't use phpBB anymore either (waaaay too long on dev time, even by FOSS standards IMHO), but I am curious: why do you not use the forum native to OCP? I have found it to be as full featured, and in many cases "more featured" than some of the others you've listed. Just curious….

Well there are many reasons.
1. arcade
2. battle system
3. army system which was boosted the popularity of the site by 100 fold
4. shoutbox that can be used all the time with out needing cleaned out before it crashes your browser

I am still using the OCP Shoutbox (after my early, and LOUD complaints) and it looks like the guys have sorted out the problems with the Shoutbox/Chatroom combination. It hasn't 'broken' on me for a few months now, and the post count keeps growing and growing.

I think in all fairness you can take that off your list . . . !!


Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Ok I will take that one off the list.
I do not think I will stop using IPB though. Having the arcade and MMORPG systsms are great.
