What is the difference between the phpbb plugin and the forum plugin? Both contain said forum integration, so isn't that kind of re-inventing your own wheel and giving us 2 of the same thing?

Post Re: What's the difference
The Forum plugin is newer and supports multiple forum types (vbulletin as well as phpBB). The idea being I can write drivers for different types of forums without starting from scratch for each one and making them their own plugins.

The phpBB plugin may be discontinued at some point since the Forum plugin does the same thing.

Ah ok, was just curious. Figured the phpBB was getting discontinued but wasn't sure. 5 years (for me) and still rocking it hard Indy! :-)
