i didnt see a spot for accolades or compliments so i thought id put it here. The new upgrade looks awesome and i cant believe the speed the CMS/forums load. This is a very nice script running this and i have never heard of it before. Im trying to remember was this a phpbb board before? if it was , was it easy to do a back up and conversion? i havent done many cms in a few years and i know some of my existing sites are almost extinct and in bad need of upgrading but after doing lots of research in years past, this one really pops out of the kick out hole! Anyways ...Nice work! and i hope everyone loves the new format.
