After looking online for a few minutes, http://www.jayjaymedia.com/mobythreads/forums/I found a threaded-view mod for phpBB</a> (they demonstrate it with 2.0.4). I'm not sure how well it'll work with 2.0.10, however.

phpBB sucks anyway. Use IPB 2.0.1 (last free version) . It has threaded and flat modes, just like WWWThreads here.

Yeah...I don't want to waste time on mods. Core support for threading is necessary.

Why fix something that isn't broken? (For the most part)

Leave WWWthreads for now, and start to program your own forum in your free time (assuming you have any).

This way, we might not have a new forum for a year or so, but you would be able to EASILY modify it any way you saw fit. (knowing the code and all)

I'm a programming and database professional...if I do any work, I'll be getting paid for it (aka no free time) <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Besides, new systems aren't complex at all. In fact, half the time I'm appalled at the simplicity of other's code....no one takes advantage of classes these days.
