TechEnclave.com:
First take on phpBB Olympus
June 22, 2006 @ 06:08:30

On TechEnclave.com today, there's a new review of the latest version of phpBB, Olympus. In it, Safin take a look at the features, installation, the management setup, and much more.

Finally the much awaited PHPBB Olympus is out as a public beta. In this review i am gonna list my experiences as i test fire the new beta.

Ok starting with a bit of history. I first tried phpbb 2 years back and i didn't like it at all. Now with Olympus i reckon we have some real good competetion. It might still not face up feature to feature with vbulletin, but its no pushover either. Considering its free and considering that it enjoys the support of an extensive modding community, i see great things happening with olympus.

They cover the normal flow of a user first installing the package:

  • installation (of course)
  • configuration
  • the user control panel
  • the overview and forum management sections
  • user management
  • attachment control
  • styling options
  • maintenance/system options
  • viewing the forums/threads

Quite an exhaustive list, and for each item there's a brief bit of opinion by the reviewer on how good it was accomplished and a rating (out of ten) at the bottom of each page.
