    So me and a friend is trying to continue the development of the OvBB v1.0 bulletin board, and I would love it if someone can give us some advice on security. The GitHub page is https://github.com/OvBBv2

    Is there a live site(s) running this somewhere for people to check out?

    Ahhhh.

    To be brutally honest, I took one quick look, and hit the X button on the browser. It is not a responsive design. This day and age, that is a must.

    Yes that's the main page. I'm going to do a revamp of it.

    It does not look like similar to any of the forum scripts.

    Forums are terrible. Make a Reddit clone.

    I was working with OVBB 0.6 years ago. Around 2004. Nice script (for that time), looks like a copy of vB2, but it had some bugs.

    Some information that maybe you don't know. The reason that the author adopted the OVBB projects was because Jelsoft was ready to issue a law suit against him as interface and functionallity were the same as vB2. To avoid the law suit the project closed. Keep this in mind in case that you'll keep same interface and same functions.

    And I think that I was using OVBB 0.16 and not 0.6. I need to check my old files.

    I'm will in my legal right to continue this forum script. If Jelsoft wants to sue me because the interface may look similar then I should think PHPBB, Discourse, Microsoft, Apple, Linux, Unix, FreeBSD, MyBB, PunBB, SMF, Yabb, XenForo and some other big names should be able to sue each other and small developers then. Besides we already changed the name and will be giving it a new look when the new version comes out. Thank you for letting me know.
