Re: file attachments….
I am in no way even considering using something like phpbb. I’ve had too many bad experiences with it.
What I am using my forum for (still looking to switch from Vanilla to BBPress possibly) is a support forum for a web design company. Each client has a specific category. Either, they are new clients that we are showing designs to or they are existing clients who sometimes have tech support questoins that require screen shots to be attached, or they want to upload pdfs, docs, fonts, etc to be used on the maintenance of thier site.
I’d love to see an attachments feature. It would help my decision of moving to this software.
