  • Ease of hacking

    How easy would it be to add hacks for VB 3(Hopefully it will be easier than PHPBB)? We are tempted to move the VCL from PHPbb to VB...

    The hacking community makes hacks and releases them.
    They are supposed to have installation instructions which can help you.

    Hacking of the source code is easy,
    you open the .php file, search and replace and save it. Reupload and you are done.

    Hacking of the templates is the same way.

    If you know some html and php, and how to backup your database, you will find hacking the code fairly easy. Otherwise it is easy to learn.

        Also supposedly vB3 will be easier to hack because it's better coded and modular (the devs made references to a plugin-type system and a pseudo API).

          I guess that will be a major advantage! Will it be the same price or in the price range of VB2?

            At this time they have not announced or hinted at any price increase to coincide with the release of vB3, though they could at any time.

              And probably will, but vB 2.2.9 owners get 3 for free I think :P

                Don't think that is true... I will search for it...

                  It most likely is true that we get it 'free' meaning no extra cost to upgrade unless your year is over, but you don't get an extra free year though.
