    Good grief phpBB3 is complex but I think I get it!

    Had to share this with people who might just understand how traumatic it can be to try and figure out a CMS or similar system and then start rewriting all your old code to use the new stuff.

    Been doing this with phpBB3 and a LOT of mod code from phpBB2 and I'm finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    - Written an abstraction layer so I can use most of my phpBB2 code more or less as is, without completely rewriting the whole damnable thing.

    - Rewritten all the language files so that the $lang arrays 'KEY' values actually make some kind of sense related to the actual text value

    - FINALLY got to grips with the ACP system which is a major upgrade from the old version although the "modules" system nearly did for me at one point :P

    ... and yeah, it's starting to come together... and why am I telling you this...

    ... because my other half's eyes glaze over and she pretty much falls asleep in less than a minute when I try to relate any of it to her. Great for insomnia, crap for motivation :P
