Is there a way to add text and/or a banner at the top above where it says "Start New Topic" but below the header where the links are? Also, how can I change the Favicon?

Also is there a way to add Forum Statistics and a Who's Online anywhere...maybe as a plugin?

Today I wondered if it was possible to create a custom homepage instead of it being the forum as default.

I tried some methods I had in mind, like checking backend or moving the existing "index.php" file to a different destination however I could find any success in both of the methods.

I would like to know how you can/if you can create a custom homepage.

Hey! So, I just installed the forum, got it all set up with users and so on. The only thing that I can not figure out is how to change the "link section" in the navbar. The dropdown menu now shows the following:

Another Action
Something Else Here
Separated Link
One more separated link.

I know these are just examples, but how to I edit/remove them?
Thanks in advance,
regards Eric

Thanks for the great forum.

@adesh or @admin Please help on how I can deny all my users the privilege of having to choose between infinite Scrolling and normal. I want the default to be infinite Scrolling and unchangeable.

Also, I would like to change my text editor, any suggestions for a plugin like a Twitter like text editor.
I've been receiving an error when a user inserts an emoji from his phone. The problem is also on this site, you can see the exception on the attached screenshot.

I want to have a custom profile field on my users profiles, however there is no option to have it appear on the profile but not being able to edit it in user settings

It's either, have both (display and editable) or how neither.

Is there anyway I can just have a custom profile feature be displayed on the profile, but not be changeable in settings



Hello. Having few issues still.

  1. When image is posted in a post it self when you click on it it opens in a lightbox, thats good. But then you go back to home page and click on same image, it try's to save on the computer instead of opening in lightbox.

  2. When "Creating" a post and trying upload multiple images to post in Mobile device, when you hit "Upload" nothing is happening. Works fine in the comments.

  3. - still shows as a link. And in home page shows nothing. needs to be fixed.

  4. .mp4 links not displaying videos. They dont even show up on main page as a link.

because I had some problems with vanilla forums, I want to change my forum script. I want to know something about Codoforum:

  1. Does Codoforum support transition from other forum software?
  2. Does Codoforum support sending e-mail notification via external server? (e.g. Gmail)
  3. Is Codoforum stable or beta? Has it got stability problems?

Sorry for my poor English

Hi, I have installed codoforum to my site. But I was planing to pay posting bonus and referral's posting bonus to my clients. My site is related to forex and it's very much necessary to my forum.

Are there any way that I can get that to my forum?

Thanks in Advance

This is a duplicate of a support ticket I created earlier today; perhaps it's worthwhile with a broader audience and greater visibility to find what I'm looking for.

I have recently installed codoforum on OLSWS. The installation was mostly painless; however some of the admin pages aren't working properly. I did hit a snag trying to create my admin user - when trying to create an admin user with a different name I got an error, but when I named the admin user "admin" it proceeded as desired. I don't know if this is a bug or intentional; just thought it worth a mention.

Initially I was getting 404/403 errors on the whole site, but I updated the .htaccess with the recommended rewrite rules and that brought it to life.

However, I'm getting errors in the admin area on a couple of pages when trying to "save" settings. Example: the "Global settings" is accessible but throws 403 when I try to save.
Same problem with trying to edit "Pages" - I can access them, and bring up the editor, but when I try to save it's 403.

All permissions have been set by default by "Cyberpanel": all files are rw-r-r and all directories are rwxr-xr-x.

The codoforum looks and feels amazing. Would be great to publicize that we can make it work on OpenLightSpeed WebServer smile

Also, there is a broken link at // (left off the h-t-t-p-s due to user restrictions) at the bottom of the post it suggests to create a topic if you have problems installing on a different web server.

Here is the way the link is formed on the instalation docs page: (I couldn't post the h-t-t-p due to user restrictions)

Here is how it should be formed (I couldn't post the h-t-t-p-s due to user restrictions)

Hi, I've installed the last release of codoforum script on Windows 10 and Xampp.
Everything works ok but when I try to add some image or something in a post, it does not display in preview side and also it does not display after clicked.
I tried, JPG, PNG, TXT, XLSX,..etc.
I got the same result for all of them.

  • I'm using https
  • All files are in the root directory of Xampp
  • I gave permission to all folders

Any advice would be appreciated.

Kindly regards.

Hallo @admin @adesh ,

It would make sense to make CF better known to get a much larger community and customer base. In addition, the number of third-party developers would also increase.

I know this is a bit of work, but it would definitely be worth it!

Here are some top places to present Codoforum:

Well worth the effort. It would be enough if you write one good article / review and then simply post it on the above addresses.

Kind regards, Andy smile


You have been in the field for more than 10 years. Quasi one of the founding fathers of the whole community forum area. Many others have taken an example from you and your idea, benefited from you and, because of your ideas and efforts, now sometimes they got better places at the rankings than CF and thats unfair. Do not allow that any further, I am addressing your ambition. You are excellent developers with great ideas, show the others your fists and work out the place you should have earned for a long time. Codoforum should be named along with WBB, vBulletin, SimpleMachines and not just cover a humble niche role. Codoforum is good, fun, easy to understand and has a great development team - there is no reason to hide any longer. smile If I can help in any way let me know it, I`m ready smile

Ohh and by the way, do you know these bad guys? They benefit from blaming Codoforum smile I would threaten them with legal actions. These are unfair advertising measures and, at least in Germany, forbidden by law.
