I'm interested in what you guys think about the new IP.Board 3?, granted not everything has seen it yet. I think it easily met my expectations so far, would have to have a look at the AdminCP and modding related features before I gave it 10/10 though.

It's not too bad. I will be ordering a custom skin for it though. Just don't like the new theme that much.

The 'View new content' part of it is AWFUL.. I prefer the IPB 2.3.x view new posts layout...lol

Yeah I can't stand it. I do like different tabs for different mods/areas. But hopefully it's more customizable.
It looks like the preview is open to the public now: http://ipb3preview.ipslink.com/

I'll list a few things that I don't really like :)

1.) View new content layout
2.) The built seo is not that good. I'll be buying communityseo for IPB3..
3.) WE have not seen the acp yet..:lol:


I hope Michael will be doing custom mods for 3. ^_^

The skin is very poor and not good looking
I hate the way the Members Page now looks, IPB 2.3 is much better
The Portal View is disgusting also
And finally the icons make me want to puke

I wish they would have just improved on 2.3.6 instead of doing all this stuff. Just my opinion.

So far I like the IPB3.0 a lot. Its got a nice clean interface, easy to use.

I have one or two issues with the skin but that shouldn't be a problem when its released as all that will be needed to fix those issues will be is a simple skin modification.

IP.Board 3 beta is probably just days away now. Another blog post with a requirements checker file can be found here. It seems the most polarizing new feature is the skin.

The admin theme seems to be loosely based off the board theme: http://ipb3preview.ipslink.com/admin/

Lindy/Charles were saying months back that the admin control panel theme is going to look almost the forum skin. :unsure:

But I've created my own IPB 3 login theme for my forum :P

I don't like the new skin, but let's face it, how many of us use the original skin anyway? There's gonna be lots of different skins for it, so that's not a big deal.
I think the ACP is gonna be great. I particularly like the feature where you can re-arrange forums using your mouse, drag and dropping them to change the order.
Other features are cool, but I won't be updating for a long time though. Minimum 6 months, possibly more.

i installed the beta today...

it's nice.. ACP, well i like it, seems a little less organised to me and they OD'ed on the tabs a bit but it's still good.
and the rest well it seems simpler which is nice

I like most of the AdminCP, especially the new skin template editor. But one thing that could be improved upon is the side bar.

Specifically the bit I've selected, it's looks disorganized and jumbled. Apart from that everything looks great.
