Welcome to my MyBB blog

I'm a huge fan of the MyBB forum software and have been designing themes for it for the past year. I've grown to love MyBB almost as much as I do phpBB. In this blog you'll be seeing various different tutorials that I've written. These tutorials will include howtos in creating themes, customizing your forum, and other cool things that you can do with the software. Stay tuned and hopefully you can learn a thing or two about MyBB.

I'm really looking forward to those Koz. Particularly the anti-spam features of both. I know there are many available, but I'd like to hear your expert opinion, which anti-spam strategies you favour for myBB and phpBB.

I personally prefer MyBB, though maybe because I have used it more than the others. I have tried having my own forum, but I tend to lose penitence since nobody really joins it Smile

I like both. For some or other reason I find it easier to navigate as a poster in phpBB. Like every time when I want to reply to a myBB post, I have to use the reply feature if I want to use any of the automatic tags. If I did not use the reply feature, I'd have to start the post from scratch. Whereas phpBB offers an alternative to move directly to the advanced page.

Dean you do realize that mybb has a multi-quote feature that works with the quick reply. I decided to throw a quick picture together for you;

In the picture it shows how to use the multi-quote feature and what blue/green means. I will also try to do a tutorial on some anti-spam features for mybb forums.

@darth: Running a good forum takes a lot of time and dedication. You have to be able to advertise the forum to all your friends and be active on it. A good start is finding that one friend that will post back and forth with you every day so your forum starts to build content.

Thanks Koz. That was great. When I'm in the "Quick Reply" view in myBB it comes up with two options: Post Reply and Preview. Just learned (after almost two years of using myBB) if I clicked on Preview in the Quick Reply mode, the Quick Reply automatically reverts to a view with the smileys and formatting options.

Sort of works the same as phpBB, just differently.

It's no problem at all. Just glad I can be of some help. Razz
