Forums update to …… PHBB3


I decide to migrate to PHBB and went away from SMF!

Don’t understand it wrongly, SMF was great for me in the last 3 years: stable, easy to use and not much targeted by hackers 😉



I leave SMF mainly as:

  • There is no bridge available in #Joomla! (bridge is discontinued and considered unsafe)
  • I would like to unify login across all my sub domains in the near future. The idea is to let you log yourself only once in #Joomla, and have access to forums, bug tracker, wiki and continuous build  and so on,
  • Joomla! forums are also using PHPBB so scaling should not be an issue (they have currently Total posts 1578894 | Total topics 352041 | Total members 268363)  🙂

So last but not least:
