New forum feature: Related Threads
Just enabled the popular and useful Related Threads feature that automatically searches for similar threads and links to them at the bottom of actual thread. It was nice to find that MyBB has this already built in, especially as I initially thought a plugin will be required.

I have a feeling we will make it, but I also can not deny that I like the current calming atmosphere here.

Something special about it, or just the feel? Asking because most forum software still have the same input field and post button Big Grin, and actually are very similar in features. Maybe there is something you miss from SMF? Btw, SMF would be my second pick from the free options available. I went with MyBB as I find the admin panel very intuitive and easy in use. Also there are a lot of quality made plugins such as the advanced SEO plugin by frostschutz.

Administration is just easier for me, plugins, and such as well, especially coding, not to mention all the options it gives you as well, and plugins, and such that are available that others have made.

phpBB forums are easy to modify their code to work with SMF forums as well, not much of a tweak you haft to do.

That's my opinion though, and will vary from peer to peer.

I don't like phpBB, no real reason why to it, I just don't and never used MyBB, I'd like to give an IPB forum a try.

Well I am saying switching to phpBB... if you and mike want to work together and make a change, go for it Big Grin and I am just saying I would be happy with that... But I am fine without it too Tongue

I guess, I don't really care what you guys do.
