Note: BoardsPackage is a replacement for this package beginning from R2.

phpBB is a high powered, fully scalable, and highly customizable Open Source bulletin board package. phpBB has a user-friendly interface, simple and straightforward administration panel, and helpful FAQ.

The amazing phpBB bulletin board application has been integrated into bitweaver. The goal of the integration was to make as *few* modifications to the phpBB source. In fact, there are only _9 small edits_ that make the integration possible.

Install: To use this package, you will first have to run the package specific installer: Install Phpbb

A "loose integration"

This technique of the fewest possible edits has been called a "loose integration". This means the source stays as pristine as possible so all of the existing mods and themes still work. This also means that multiple user tables are maintained, however our integration handles updating of usernames, email, and passwords automatically.

(:arrow:) All changes to the phpBB source were wrapped with TIKI_MOD comments. Search for those to see all the modifications that were made.
