After months of development and testing and your valuable feedback, we are very pleased to announce the release of new version of our forum, Codoforum V5.0
Our primary focus for this release has been the internal framework itself and a whole host of new features.

Here are some of the major changes:

Highlight to Quote:

Now you can easily quote while replying to topics by simply highlighting any part of the text and clicking the quote button.


Now easily assign badges and make your members feel special.


You can also upload your own badges from the control panel


Sticky topic without permission

This is really useful when you want your categories to be private but would want the sticky topic to be visible to users who do not have permission to view the category. This can be toggled from the Global Settings in the Control Panel.

Login as any user

Note: This feature is for admin users to help debug any issues and hence you are responsible to uphold any privacy laws that are prevalent in your country. This can be accessed from Manage users -> Edit a user, and you should see a button to login as that user.

Replace Limonade with FastRoute Router

We have been using the Limonade framework for over 6 years now and the framework isn't being maintained and is not compatible with new version of PHP (PHP7.4 and above), Hence we switched to FastRoute, It is written by Nikita Popov, one of the current principal contributors to PHP, Apart from being fast, it is also used as a base for many other frameworks out there.

Global search feature

We have centralized both the topics and category search into one unified interface with advanced filters and sorting options.

Other Features:

  • Responsive videos for mobiles
  • Backend options for infinite and hide topic messages
  • Libraries moved to composer
  • Added vBulletin Importer
  • New plugin for Azure Active Directory support
  • Faster email batching and dequeue

We have made a couple of performance improvements as well as fixed many bugs.

List of changes:

  • Cyrillic characters fixed
  • Excerpt updated for better performance and view
  • Mentions not working properly fixed
  • Title split fixed
  • Permission fixes and aggregator fixes
  • Made save button responsive in all pages
  • Added non-ssl mail support
  • Fixed digest bugs
  • Infinite scrolling not working fixed
  • Fixed responsive theme issues
  • More prominent create/reply buttons
  • Password fix for PHP 7.4
  • Poll edit bug fixed
  • BBcode multiline not working fixed
  • Added missing translations when infinite scroll in topic
  • Delete post bug fixed
  • Many Editor UI fixes
  • Closed topic permission fix
  • Image preview fix
  • Template bug fixes

Preparing for PHP 8 and Codoforum 6

Codoforum so far has maintained strict backwards compatibility, this means you could upgrade from the oldest version of Codoforum to v5 without any major issues. The plugins written for v1 would still work for v5. This ofcourse comes at a price, The price being a lot of bloat to maintain backwards compatibility and a lot of time spent in regression tests. Codoforum v5 removes a lot of bloat and is almost a major rewrite, but as we are tied to PHP 7.3, we still cannot use the new PHP features like, Typed class properties, JIT, Attributes, Null safe operator, named arguments etc which make the code a lot cleaner, faster and easier to maintain.

Hence, we have decided that going forward, the next major release would target PHP 8, Yes, we know PHP 8 isn't out yet and is a few months away but we have already started making preparations for it.

What would this mean for you?
Likely nothing to worry about, you will be able to upgrade from V5.x to v6 from the control panel, If your plugins and themes target v5, they will mostly work as they do. If there are issues, we will help you through the upgrade process.

Hallo Community

because there is no dark theme (style) for Codoforum I created one for myself and I share the result now with the Codo community.

I am not a professional webdesign artist or developer. It is one of my hobbies and even if I love webdesign and already created a lot of projects, I`m sure the theme is far from perfect but it is ready to use.

If You like it or download it give me a thumbs up or leave a comment.

I try to update the theme from time to time and maybe I will integrate some new features too.

Here is the download link:

Kind Regards, Andy

  • Post drafts does not save entered polls
  • Browser push notifcations does not seem to work
  • When a user is modifying their bio, it adds the HTML code <p></p> to it
  • When a user is modifying their profile and goes under "preferences" it does not show if Show real-time notifications or Show desktop notifications is enabled.
  • When a user clicks on the search bar at the top it auto-jumps up to the top of the forum when scrolling
  • When in the admin dashboard and the user enables "Spam Filter" it changes but refreshes and it shows as if it did not change until the user reloads the page


  • A way to prevent guests from voting twice on a poll if logged out (ex. IP)
  • Use more gender-neutral language during UI elements (ex. polls saying "Can user recast his vote?" (Not major, just more professional language)

Just some things i've noticed playing around with Codo, cheers

Hi, I installed FreiChat on a HumHub site. It worked fine until a CroneJobs issue. After that the chat bubble doesn't appeared any more (I assume the problem started after that). I have unistalled and re installed many times the chat module, and even have deleted the site account on the dashboard of FreiChat, and the chat continues without appears.v

I'm creating a forum related to a particular, but broad topic, and it needs to have the following specific features:

-the ability to follow individual users and have all their posts AND COMMENTS show up in your main feed.

-the ability to upload/download documents as a post that can be commented under like any other post. (It would also be great if it could somehow be displayed in the post, but that's not essential).

-the ability to search for the document posts based on specific keywords. Not a global site search, but searching within the "documents" sub itself.

-the ability to create private subs.

If anyone could tell me if codologic has those features, that would be great. Thanks!

Hallo Community

Today is one of those days where I thought "hey, it would be cool if the Codoforum community gave something back to our brilliant developers".

So I designed a small banner and you dudes are very welcome to share it on all your social accounts like Twitter, Facebook etc. We'll make sure that the hut gets some momentum again.

Thank you very much.

Best regards, Andy smile

Hallo @adesh and @admin

I usually don't write any suggestions or only very rarely. The fact that I enjoy working here as a volunteer (as far as I can) gave me the following idea:

It would be a great feature if it could be possible to create some kind of "article templates" in the admin backend.

What I mean by that is that it allows you to create a fixed template structure for forum posts, for example:

  1. for tutorials
  2. support requests
  3. or reviews
  4. etc.

That would simply be an ingenious feature to bring more order and, of course, a nicer structure to a forum, for which it would be clearer and more uniform.
Furthermore, I think it would give Codoforum a good advantage over most other forum software since the feature is very rare.

What do you think of it - would this be feasible and would you want to tackle it?

Kind regards and thx for your awesome work.

Andy smile

Hey @admin it's me again. Hope you're doing great!

Man, I got 2 more problems.

  1. I can't happen to Add or Show Pagination in Tags pages. You see, it's not there by default. And I tried to write my own codes but that didn't work.

  2. Stuffs don't show up for Specify Pages. When I put just 1 path, it works fine. But when I put multiple paths (one per line) it doesn't work at all.


So buddy, can you help me out here? It's driving me nuts.
Thanks in advance!

Hi again, it's been a while.

I was looking around and had a question. Is it possible to have the server send a webhook request, or a few, when someone makes a new topic, and change each request by category (such as posting in a category called 'games' will send one webhook but a post in a category called 'internal' would not.

recent by admin  ·  May 2 at 11:46 am

First off, I wanna thank the Developer (Adesh) for creating this sweet piece of content management system in the first place. Really man, a Million thanks to you!

Now, I gotta put a Dagger in your Chest. You see, buddy, you just forgot to utilize 2 cute little important features in the back-end of your script.
Now, I know a lotta folks including yourself must be thinking... what could that possibly be?
Well, behold my friends! I'll show it to ya. Just mind the Points I mentioned below:

  • Store attachments on a sub-domain rather than the Parent Domain
  • Restrict users (according to Primary Role settings) from creating Topics under a specific Category

Now, the Question is... why is it so Important?

Well, the Answer is very Simple.

  1. If you store attachments on a different portal, say a sub-domain... it'll improve overall Page Loading Speed tremendously. Like you know, if 10000 folks upload Images on the main Domain with 50 Images per Page and 1000 folks access the Website at the same time... you can Imagine how incredibly it'll slow down the response of the server.So, you gotta use the sub-domain to store attachments. Just like YouTube, Amazon and WordPress sites do.

Now about the Restriction:

  1. Let's just say there are some users that I don't want to allow create Topics under a specific category, say News and Announcements. So, when I set the Rule for a user, say a Moderator... he won't be able to create Topics under News and Announcements but he can create Topics elsewhere.

But sadly, these 2 FEATURES ain't available in Codoforum. So my buddies @adesh, @admin and @WebCrew don't you folks think they are very Important to get 'em adopted in this Software?
If so, can you make 'em happen, cap'n?

recent by TheGeek  ·  Apr 2 at 3:10 pm

I have two queries:

  • How to acquire a CodoForum license? I've seen it somewhere on the site but now I can't find it.

  • On my site only registered users can create post and reply. Now I want to make a category where anyone, even if not registered, can create a post and reply. In that case, I create a category and assign permissions to all users to create new topics, in particular to the guest user.When an unregistered user ( guest ) enters the category, the "New Topic" button appears correctly. Enter to create the post, but when you click the Post button an error occurs.62312ce562435

Any comments or bux fixes?

We have had several users have trouble typing on Freichat. They can log in, and see the conversation, but cannot type. I have the paid full version, and these all seem too be newer iPhone phones. Latest ones with problems typing in the chat had iPhone 12 Pro Max and an iPhone 12 XS Max. What's the solution? Help! @admin @adesh

I am starting to use Codoforum.
In the post I use the button to load an image. The image is well loaded on the server, in the correct path, but it is not shown in the post, neither in the initial screen nor when entering the post. Only a link appears with the name assigned to the image.
I've been trying solutions but still can't get it to work.
I am using xampp with php 7.4


Any ideas ?
Thanks a lot
Kind regards


I've got this error when trying to activate the entreprise plan of freichat (elgg) :

Whitelabel Error Page
This application has no explicit mapping for /error, so you are seeing this as a fallback.

Please help me fixing this error, I'm a new user.

Hallo @admin and @adesh

a HumHub user was as_king me via chat on my own website if there is a option to hide the FreiChat user online status.

Some users prefer not to be marked as online and prefer to remain anonymous. Is there a hidden setting for it somewhere in FreiChat or would you be so kind and develop something like that please?

Kind regards and thx for your work mates,

Andy smile

Biggest fan of Codoforum + Freichat here.

Unfortunately have encountered some issues with our integration of codoforum and freichat, after having to do a backup, something went wrong and we can't figure the solution.

We implemented both chat and forum on the loopazon platform awhile back, on CS.Cart, if the team recalls. All was wonderful with both freichat and codoforum, with the integrated login for both.

I've attached links to the videos demonstrating the problems. Could you take a look and let me know any solutions?

Here's the screen casts demonstrating the issues:

Best regards,
