Hello loyal Codoforum community,

Like you, I'm a very simple user of Codoforum and FreiChat and I think it's great what Codologic has created for us over the years.

Let us give them a little thank you and help to create more awareness for Codoforum, people should know about Codoforum and its awesome features.

Don't be lazy, two minutes of work helps a lot. Just share a few positive words about Codoforum on Twitter or other social networks. You can also share the following image:


Share it !

At the end of the day, we all benefit from this because more theme and plugin developers can find us.

You can also follow Codologic at Twitter:

Thank you very very much, kind regards,

Andy smile

Since CodoForum 5 is here I've started working on a new theme.
Probably I'll update Velux too.

Here's a "sneak peak", if you have suggestions, i'll be glad to hear them.
This is just a concept, major changes will come.

Hi Community smile

Today I was sorting out older projects from me and I found a very early try of a Codoforum theme I did some years ago. I updated it to work with latest Codoforum version 5.0.2+

It is a black & white (kind a like) theme with a bit more contrast as the default one - thats why I named the theme "Contrast". Other then that it is nothing special.

You can download the theme at my GitHub repository. It would be awesome if you leave a star rating for me - thx mates!


I will further update the theme.

Kind regards, Andy smile

Hallo @admin

would you be so kind and help me and tell me what to do to solve my issue please?

I think it is something wrong or missing with the Less compiler, but I can be wrong. I know only CSS3 and HTML5 but as good as no Less or PHP.

I got the following error message:

Fatal error: Uncaught Less_Exception_Compiler: variable @badgeRewardedBorderColor is undefined in file anonymous-file-0.less in anonymous-file-0.less in /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Variable.php:49 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Expression.php(52): Less_Tree_Variable->compile(Object(Less_Environment)) #1 /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Value.php(27): Less_Tree_Expression->compile(Object(Less_Environment)) #2 /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Rule.php(75): Less_Tree_Value->compile(Object(Less_Environment)) #3 /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Ruleset.php(94): Less_Tree_Rule->compile(Object(Less_Environment)) #4 /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Ruleset.php(94): Less_Tree_Ruleset->compile(Object(Less_Environment)) #5 /var/www/web2474 in /var/www/web24746577/html/nw/board/sys/vendor/wikimedia/less.php/lib/Less/Tree/Variable.php on line 49

I am wondering if it is possible to embed HTML inside of emails sent by Codoforum's installation? I know that my main CMS let's us do this however can't figure out if it is possible with codoforum, being it just sends the HTML code instead of it. I know it is possible to do just plane text.

Also, there is a issue where daily digests just send a single file called "noname" containing code for said email. Which again, works fine on our CMS with same email configuration so I think it's a codoforum issue. Any known fixes?

I'm setting up CF for the first time and trying to get the SMTP email to work with my setup. For several reasons my emailer is a Windows box on the local LAN. It uses self-signed certs which may or may not be part of the problem here, but I want to do a non-SSL connection (because it's local I'm not worried about security) but port 465 is assumed SSL by my server. When connecting to 465 it times out, and my server reports SSL direct-connect failure.

When I change the port to either of the valid non-SSL ports on my server (25 or 125) the forum crashes hard upon save, complaining about incorrect strings. No email is sent.

Fatal error: Uncaught PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1366 Incorrect string value: '\xC0\x06\xE7\xD4\x9Cc...' for column 'trace' at row 1 in /var/www/forum/sys/CODOF/Log.php:89

Suggestions welcomed.

Stored XSS Affecting admins!

This is not a vulnerability in codofurm but codologic central
it creates user in database without sanitization

This is very dangerous because there is still no httponly on the session cookie, attackers can steal your session and hijack admin accounts!

Bonjour. Et bien voici mon problème: lorsque je navigue sur mon site "" avec Google Chrome et parfois j'obtiens toujours ce message d'erreur "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED". Le problème se produit également avec d'autres navigateurs tels que Firefox. Cela est-il causé par des logiciels malveillants ou des paramètres de navigateur? J'ai besoin de ton aide!

Si vous pouvez même visiter mon site, j'aimerais savoir si le problème est également visible sur votre navigateur.

Merci d'avance.

@admin @adesh Please note that I'm getting an error when I try to add a Poll to a topic.

Way to replicate it:

  1. Create a new topic and add a Poll to it.
  2. Edit the topic and make it sticky (without the poll).
  3. Edit the topic again and try to add the Poll.
  4. Result: 5f2d7171337a9

Also, if you need an example of how a standard v4.9.4 forum looks like, please have a look at .
Do you see something out of the ordinary? (like every closed topic appears on top of other normal topics regardless of the post date!).
Basically a closed topic acts like a sticky one...

Probably this is the change that broke it:

We really need a new version, as there are too many bugs...

So I've been trying to reach out to the support team to get my new installation going, but haven't had much luck in getting a response.

I believe my website (using PhpBB) is experiencing jquery issues. I've followed the instructions in their SOLUTIONS, but still no luck. Also most of the buttons in the chat box do not actually function as intended. See examples below:

  1. I cleared the chat history, then I refreshed the page and the original chat history is still there.
  2. I sent a video chat request to a test user on my other PC and never received the request. I performed this test on both computers.
  3. The only button that works is the 'Save chat history' button.

If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations on how to resolve these issues, then I would greatly appreciate it!!

Got a maybe a silly idea for some time in the future.

When user posts a new topic, it will go to a section called "New Topics"smile not the index page). So, users can vote on it. If, lets say topic gets "5" upvotes, it will than gets to be displayed in a main page under category person created a topic under. If not, it gets burried without showing up. - Sort of, let users moderate whats gets displayed on site according to their needs.

I'm trying to create a new theme and was following the documentation. However I noticed that in my install I don't have a so called blue theme but rather a default theme, vintage, 2k18 and ignis. So since I wish to hopefully edit some of the HTML as well, I copied the default theme and renamed it. I then went into the admin panel was happy to to see the new theme here (even though it is just a copy of the default folder - theme). But once I activate this new theme I get a few errors

Warning: require....theme.php. I noticed that the default folder doesn't have a theme.php but rather an ITheme.php. Also a Fatal Error : require.... CODOF/Smarty/Layout.php on line 22

From the admin when I put back the original theme, everything works. Not sure what I'm missing. What is the difference between the theme.php and the ITheme.php files

Thank you

I read the very short Terms of Service and judging by this line

(which derivative is misspelled btw)

This software is not open-source? Correct?

When browsing topic, and you want to reply to it quick, you have to scroll all the way up to post a comment. Not so great.

If i get some free time or what not, im going to try to add it. Not sure how its set up, opens up in java script? Sucks being out of town, i cant code on my phone.


The admin dashboard Latest news tries to load a frame or something.
But I get :

Is there possibility to change all links and protocol to https?

I have a lot of mixed content And I do not want change manually all the files

Someone wrote, this would make it

 Force HTTPS
   RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
   RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

but it provides redirect loop.

Is there somewhere in options - constant to change to achieve change to SSL?
