Please if you were abandoning ship, hold off on that for a bit.

I am gratified by the nice comments, many will know that I set up myff in the first place on the back of getting a call for help from someone struggling with shitty service from a free forums system.
A bit of a look round suggested that this was pretty typical, and made me think that I could only achieve better
This also meant that having figured that things had got unsustainable, I could not in good faith, flog our members data off to the systems that I disliked the ethics of in the first place....
Touch would we have another path forward....

I hope you get it sorted soon and make an announcement.Since the banner appeared on our forum posts slowed up.
I decided to take early retirement from admin duties if we are closed.
So. Give us a clue. What's happening

We have a buyer that looks solid. e.g. I was never going to pass on the forum data to the type of people I set up to compete against as I did not like their general ethics.
This made it look like a lost cause, but seemingly it is not

Almost certainly we are talking phpbb3.

Looks like MyFFs possible reprieve will not help our forum. Within 24 hours of the important announcement our Admin saw this as an opportunity to retire and said he was resigning as admin. Nobody else wants the job and I'm stepping down from being a moderator too. The few remaining members are wondering if the long established forum  can continue to exist without an admin. I think I know the answer, but I'd like to hear what MyFF thinks would or should happen.

Forums have to have an owner, otherwise there is no one taking responsibility.

I thought that as well, but I've set up a phpBB3 version of our forum and it looks pretty good. It just takes time to tweak it and a lot of trial and error.

The biggest thing for me was figuring out the forum permissions, especially as we have a sub-forum-specific moderator. This is easy on phpBB2 but a lot trickier on phpBB3. Got it sorted, though.

HAVEN'T got the smilies sorted yet.

Would it be possible to have an idiot's guide to changing my forum from phpbb2 to phpbb3?  Great news that we can continue.

Go into your admin control panel. Then click on the link for 'forum owners control panel' and log in there.


Under the 'Phpbb3/Phbbb2' tab, you should see an option to "Create/upgrade a phpbb3 version of your forum."


Click on this and follow the instructions through. If all goes well, you will now see two links in the forum owners control
panel - one for your existing phpBB2 forum and the other for a phpBB3 version of it. Dont panic here - your phpBB2 forum
is still the default version your users will see.


At the bottom of the forum owners control panel page you'll see something like this:

phpbb3 forum link: http://{your.forum}.wonko3.myfastforum.org
phpbb2 forum link: http://{your.forum}.wonko.myfastforum.org



If you click on the link to the phpBB3 version it will take you to a basic version of your forum in phpBB3. You can then
login as admin and begin the process of altering templates, forum colours, etc. This is the bit that will take the most
time. The good news is, there's plenty of help for simple problems on phpBB3 on Google.


When you've finalised editing, then you return to the 'forum owners control panel' and select 'Make forum link' phpBB3
from the dropdown box. That'll set your forum to be phpBB3 by default.

Thank you James. That looks very doable. I'll give it a go and let you know how it goes. I'm away from my computer for  a few days at the moment and don't want to do anything to my forum using my tablet so it will be a while.

here's the 'idiots' guide  

didn't work for us due to the size but hopeful admin will want to sort it using the phpbb2 import in phpbb3
