I received my copy of phpBB: A User Guide today. This is an abridged version of the larger phpBB book published by Packt. Basically, some of the more intricate details (such as writing a hack, etc.) have been removed and the price has been lowered. So, if you wanted to get more of a user guide thing for phpBB without those intricate details and want to save some money, you may want to take a look. In the end, more options for people like this can’t be bad.
My foreword was removed (although, after talking to the editor, that seems to have been accidental), which is cool. I didn’t expect it to be in there since this is a much shorter book. But, as I was a Technical Reviewer on the first book and this book is the words of the first book (except less), I am a Technical Reviewer on this one, as well. It was authored by Stoyan Stefanov and my man Jeremy, so congrats to them and thanks again to Packt for allowing me and us (phpBBHacks.com) to be a part of it.
