Ok, so despite having a dedicated server I hadn't bothered to switch bpsite forums from my old shared hosting.

Well I did that this week, and it turns out that Invision is too crap to handle PHP5.

So, after poking around trying to get it working, I figured it was simpler just to upgrade to a newer version.

Except Invision is no longer free, so I simply grabbed SMF and a converter, and after a bit of jiggerypokery with the database and conversion script, I got it working.

Welcome to BPSITE SMF Forums. Smiley

They are. All odd and no sensible thought it seems. The admin area is even worse (as evidenced by how long it took me to fix)

Hornet said SMF was all wonderful and great, but I'm not really convinced. :/

Much faster than phpBB though.  It's not quite as good as I recall, to be fair, but I still like it - gets the job done without fuss Smiley  May want to look into alternate themes though.
