Yes we are still supporting phpBB 3.2
phpBB 3.3 support is in the works no eta right now.

I do advise anyone running a forum hosting service you should have development experience to make your forum hosting service standout.

Thanks for the answer.

I've seen the demo of the script but i don't see any page to create a forum. Is the script you purchase the same or demo site has some hidden features?

Do you have any planned ETA? Also some questions:

1) Why when i create a forum in the demo website the phpBB version is 3.2.5 meanwhile here it says 3.2.9? Haven't you updated the script yet on demo version?
2) I tried echophp, i've seen that has a lot of more frontend and backend features, it better than phpbbhs? Which phpbb version is using?
3) Do you suggest me to purchase phpbbhs or echophp?

No planned eta I would think within six months.

1. No haven't updated demo site.

2. phpBBHS is newer code. I would not suggest echophp I own both scripts.

3. phpBBHS.

I will probably buy the script within some days but do you realize in six months how many phpbb updates can be released? (even small ones)

I know jumping from 3.2.9 to 3.3.X is a headache but yeah imho updates should be faster since i think i'm not the only one who'll use phpbbhs (or already using). Just my two cents.
