Just an FYI, the BBS search engine is on the fritz. The google one appears to still be working.

It would be pretty awesome if the forums could upgrade to a newer version of phpBB. This one is kinda dated, 2.0.21 whereas the latest one is 3.0.5. Good for security and for performance.

It's for the good of the board. There are tons of security flaws in older versions that can be easily exploited. This version in particular is vulnerable to several SQL injection attacks, which basically means no more board, or if you're lucky the board needs to be restored from a backup.

We'll be upgrading when .6 comes out.

To be honest, one of the things holding me back is that I've not found a phpBB3 style that is as easy on the eyes as this one.

One of the good and bad things about phpBB3's search feature, however, is that it excludes the top %5 most popular search terms. That can be disabled because it can cause more problems than it solves.
