It looks very impressive - what software is the forum running on now? Have to say, phpBB 3 was beginning to look very dated, but I know it has its fans. A forum I mod runs under an extension of WordPress and that too looks good.
Does this also mean the private sections are now truly private?
The forum is still on phpBB but Timbo found a cool skin which I have hacked to hell and back, and applied the latest updates. We needed to move fairly briskly once we got the nod so we were reluctant to try to port the db across to anything else. Hence, staying with phpBB even if it is still not blisteringly quick.
That said, once we tweak the new server, we should be able to wring a few more milliseconds' performance out of it.
The private sections are still being indexed but that too should be resolved in the fullness of time. In fact, there are quite a few tasks to backfill which is because we were trying to limit the downtime to the absolute minimum.
