Looks nice :kg:

What forum platform is it running?

I was actually planning to upgrade this forum for a long time now. It's running phpBB3. It's not very mobile-friendly for example (fonts/buttons etc. too tiny to click). The menu on the left-hand side could probably be removed as I (and pretty sure anyone else) isn't probably using it?

Now the thing is, there is no phpBB4 to date and it looks like there isn't much if any development going on. Also, migrating the database, forum template (I like the header), smileys etc. is no easy feat.

Well - it looks different. Fonts appear to be smaller which I'm not a big fan of, due to my eyes getting older. In addition, it looks like it has ads which I know I'll find very annoying. However, I would have to actually use/test it out before I can make any actual positive or negative comments about it.

I think there is a way to change the text file but I'm not sure yet.
The forum runs on Xenforo
There is a three day trial so you could give it a try.

Oh, it's not open source. :???:

Sorry, but I don't have the money to spend on forum software.

I generally don't mind paying for things, but in this case it would also prevent me from doing customizations. Also, one day the forum might stop working because of non-payment etc.
