  • Better Forum Manager?

    Hi Guys, I just upgraded to vb3 (click sig if you wanna check it out) and I'm wanting to move the forums around, delete some, shuffle some etc. Now, is it my imagination or was this heaps easier with vb2? I don't remember the forum manager being as... well... "simple" as it is. I run a gaming network and help many people set up and maintain phpbb sites because they don't want to shell out for vB, but I wouldn't run phpbb myself... because... I'm a vB fanboy Anyways, if any of you have seen the admin panel of a phpbb forum, their forum manager is quite lovely. So in short, is there any way that I can get this:



    to look a little more like this:



    obviously not just look, but function like it. I don't want to be a negative nancy, but the vB forum manager kinda sucks I mean, I'm sure the team have been working on other things like "stability and security" unlike some other forum software that was hit by a worm Any ideas? If you can point me to a mod or... anything, that would be great

    the phpBB design is a really nice layout and organization. However, one of the big limitations of it is if people have more than 3 levels of forums (and there are quite a few of them), it becomes a chore to find the forums, while scrolling as well.

      Right on man, I agree that phpbb is quite jumbo in nature, all I'm looking for is something that's not it a drop down, like phpbb's, but without the bloat, I like the way vb3 uses it's fancy pants pop up menus, you could simply have some of the options in them. I could design it, and do all the templates, I just need someone do to that horrible crap in the back end (yes, im the "designer" half of our web team)

      edit: Was the vb2 one like phpbb's? I honestly can't remember, but I don't remember it being so... like it is.
