    Why dont cpanel or Fantastico have a new forum software called WOWBB
    http://www.wowbb.com it looks great and new. is there any chance of getting it on?

    The answer to that is pretty simple, actually. It's not free, it can't be included in CPANEL, Fantastico or anything else. It's in the same boat as Invision Board 2.x and vBulletin.

    Only 1.3 and earlier, because the license allowed that. 2.0, just like vB and WowBB are only available if you pay for them.

    You aren't getting it... that isn't permitted. It's not a choice. If they allowed free and completely unrestricted copying and third party installation of a trial product (as Invision used to) that might be a different story, but they do not. Besides, even if they did allow that, who would want to risk that WowBB would pull an Invision and radically change their licensing terms and leave people with an insecure product with only a paid upgrade as an option?

    If you like WowBB, go ahead and buy it, but don't expect it to show up in CPANEL or Fantastico because it can't as it stands right now.
