    I took a look at PunBB. It IS lightning fast but certainly on the ugly side. Is there a repository anywhere of alternative skins for PunBB?

    i dont find it ugly at all... its very professional looking. there is a site link on that page for hacks and other themes.

    however with that said... you can only change the color of your forum and add a title image or two.

    if im not mistaken their is work being done to include a better theme support possibly.

    its ultra fast, and the theme's are only color based, its not ugly at all either. very professional look.

    granted their no phpBB, but thats what you get for increased performance, and quality.

    I am impressed with the speed of PunBB and when version 1.2 comes out (anyone know when?), I'll replace my Invisionfree board (which worked okay until they screwed everything up making upgrades and lost all my messages.) I love the idea of less stuff means less stuff to go wrong.

    My preferred, relatively simple skin shouldn't be that hard to add to PunBB:

    yes, its extreamly easy to upgrade using punBB.

    and it would be no problem doing that theme you have. you can go the with just colors or add the one image for the boarder, altho that means u have to edit the code ( i think ). punBB official forums are very active and the host moderates it all the time, so you can always search and ask quesitons.

    I've been using IPB since August of 2002 and I've really enjoyed it. Can't really say too many bad things about it.
