We have been working with phpBB for a few months on a project for our sales department.  I found it particularly difficult to navigate the HTML documentation and decided there had to be a better way.  There was no “manual”, so I assigned one of my summer interns to grab all of the data from the HTML pages and put them into a Word document.  We converted that to PDF using Adobe Acrobat 8.1.2 and the final output is pretty good for a first pass.  There are some extraneous blank pages, but other than that it is a pretty useful document.

That was back in March of this year.  Since that time, I have been asked many times by users to send them a copy of the document.  So, I decided to make it available through this blog at  One user that asked for the document has posted it on his site at as well.
