PhpBB 3.1

PhpBB3.1 is a modern complete rewrite of the previous phpBB forum software, available since October 28, 2014.
It features many improvements for users, administrators, and developers such as OAuth logins, Gravatars, Ajax and a new notification system.
The biggest change is the new Extensions system, which replaces the old and outdated Modifications. The Extensions system makes updating phpBB and 3rd party code a breeze and you can finally customize and extend your forum’s functionality without modifying source code.
phpBB3.1 Ascraeus is also the most stable and secure release of phpBB.

The well tested and widely used Symfony components have replaced some of the underlying foundations of phpBB to make it provide the best forum experience ever.

Mobbern is one of the first themes to fully support the awesome new phpBB3.1!

The phpBB 3.1 version of Mobbern was written from scratch, and we also developed the Theme Control Panel extension becoming the first author to provide such features.

Bootstrap 3.2

Bootstrap is a free collection of front-end tools for developing responsive websites and web applications. It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for beatiful typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as JavaScript extensions. Bootstrap was developed by two programmers at Twitter, as a framework to encourage consistency across internal tools. In August 2011 it was released as open source. Almost three years later it became the No. 1 project on GitHub.

Bootstrap is compatible with the latest versions of all major browsers. It degrades when used on older browsers. Since version 3.0, Bootstrap adopted a mobile-first design approach, emphasizing responsive web design by default.

Thanks to Mobbern, Bootstrap 3.2 is empowering the phpBB3 forums!


HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computer and devices.
In particular HTML 5 adds many new syntactic features. This include the integration of scalable vector graphics (SVG) content which enable web graphics to look sharp on high definition screens like the new QHD 2K standard for mobile phones.
Other new elements are designed to enrich the semantic content of documents.
Together with HTML5 comes CSS3, with built-in support for rounded corners, semi-transparent elements(rgba), transitions, 3d transforms, beautiful fonts and much more!
