Like many I have grown weary of the constant updates and security holes in phpBB and having to constantly hack the templates to make them comply with W3 standards, I decided to give Simple Machines a try.
I like it.
I like it enough to replace the forum I have on this site. This forum is for the discussion of web standards. All are welcome to join.
Simple Machines uses valid markup and css right out of the box. I’m quite impressed by this as it seems to be a non-issue to the phpBB community.
I’m now working on figuring out the template system on Simple Machines so that I can make some adjustments.
More to follow.
