Joining me this week on WordPress Weekly was Douglas Bell who operates Webmacster87.info as well as hosts the PHPBBWeekly podcast. In this episode, David and I chatted about a number of subjects including:
- WordPress User Interface History
- The possibilities of the WordPress team working with PHPBB to develope a bridge between the two
- Security of PHPBB3 and WordPress
And a whole lot more. While PHPBB and WordPress are two different pieces of open source software serving different needs, I find it interesting to discuss the differences in strategy as well as the similarities between the two.
