Some time in the future the forums will be using new software. I've had some problems as well as users with the forums either logging in, posting, private messaging and so on. After reading through some topics at SMF's community boards it may be because of the newer versions of PHP and this software is old and is no longer updated. My host uses php V5.3 right now. It seems like these problems came about when they went to that. It'll get worse over time. From what I read at SMF, when my host decides to go to php V5.5, that will pretty much break this forum software. So its time to plan ahead.Invision
is what I will be going with. A lot of mod communities use it, a lot of gaming companies, like Bethesda and Obsidian use it. I like it, I like the extra goodies it comes with, the security features, board and posting control, it has a lot going for it. Its not free. It will cost me money, money that I have to use at the moment to buy another car that is good on gas. The company I work for has moved on the other side of town, which is costing me money in fuel every week. Plus I want to wait for version 4 of their software comes out. So that is the future plans here.
