Not to my knowledge. If you are lucky, your webhosting may have IPB 1.2 imbedded in its cpanel scripts mananger portion. I believe cpanel has the legal rights to keep 1.2

I have phpbb 2.0.18 and I actually have IPB 1.3 from many moons ago...

I stopped using IPB 1.3 because there were no additions to it, and any problems with it were never going to be fixed because it went for profit.

I just read on here that "Invisionize" will help make it as secure as 2.0.4... although I am on the site and can't really find anything..

phpbb 2.0.18 + EasyMod 0.3.0 + MobyThreads 1.2.3a = a pretty good board.

Hmmm

I looked on MobyThreads site and I don't see anything about it that differs from phpBB.

The difference is the thread layout.

Instead of being a flat type layout like this board, it is "threaded" like the older WWWBoard.

Many still prefer that layout...

punBB all the way. It's light-weight and extremely fast.

I would have said SMF. It works great easy to theme and it the easiest ever to add add ons and updates to as you don't have to use the FTP at all for anything, and it will inform you of updates to add ons.

However because of the internal conflicts I would rather support the new project tha split of from SMF, but they don't have a working forum yet, and they will support conversion from SMF, so yeah, SMF.
