    Have you looked at Invision? It has very good posting engine (Bold/Italic/Quote etc. placing). Moderator is good. Don't know about admin. I would like to hear your (such expirienced PHP-er) opinion. ;)

    I did look at invision, although not too closely, I've been planning on taking a more thorough look into it sometime this month.

    I took a better look at the Admin interface in Invision board today, not too bad. Language set files are a good idea, however, in my experience a pain to impliment... I can't stand coding with them, lol. The options available are good. Seems not too bad, although a lot of the layout bugs me, and IMO they should be using XHTML, which vB3 and DP2 will be using (although vB3 doesn't validate yet)

    I think overall Invision is about the best free board available. Can't stand the <ibf.lang.blah> in the templates though.

    Why would he do that when he's helping develop another forum system? ;)

    Yeah, I've been examining the Invision board yesterday on my local server; def. has 'everything' I've been missing in phpBB! There's also a nice phpBB > Inv. converter and it WORKS! :)

    I know, I thought the same when I first saw it (@HydrogenAudio) - much better than phpBB, and free!

    I'll give it a go; I just need to look at the theme development, hope it won't give me a headache!
