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 - PLEASE dont forget to give me a STAR rating at GitHub thanks mates:
getting the feel of the software, I have an old vbulletin database i wanted to play with, but the importer only works for vbulletin 5 which uses nodes. I have the 3.8.11. Whats the chance that an importer for the 3.8 can be published?
I would have thought of something small that could perhaps be integrated with little effort.
You know my dark theme here in the community. How would it be to use this as a kind of day/night theme?
All that would be necessary would be two links in the user menu with one link pointing to the Codoforum standard theme (i.e. light design / day mode) and you could add my theme to the system as a theme and use it as a dark theme via a link. So all you have to do is integrate these two links into the user menu and the theme chosen by the user is then stored in the browser cookie. Bingo ready is the Codoforum Day/Night Mode
That would be a little thing that many would be happy about and for me it's ok if you use my theme for it.
In the documentation have a list of critical third-party domains vanilla Codoforum will need to connect to for features to work
An example of a domain i'd say is critical: is a example of something i would say is a critical third party domain as if Codoforum is unable to connect to it, then the "Edit Badges" page will not load.
Why this is important: Codoforum gives the right to self-host forums if you opt for the free plan. (All forum features cannot remove Powered by) (source).
As someone who self-hosts an install of Codoforum myself (Configured an Ubunutu Server myself, setup web server, maintenance, security) I also have to configure the content security policies. And if Codoforum gave a list domains to add to the list so Codoforum works without issue then it'd remove the headache of figuring out which some features do not work (as example from above, the badges not working if https://unpkg.com/vue@next is not whitelisted, Freichat not working if https://nodelb.freichat.com also is not whitelisted, and so on.
Only recently people from the community wrote to me in the chat where they can delete their account.
This has now led me to propose you to adapt Codoforum and FreiChat to the new laws.
It is the case in the EU and also in the USA that there is now this GDPR and COPA privacy law. This grants community and website users the right to receive their complete data sets, e.g. as a JSON file, and allows users to completely delete their accounts.
Since one of the largest markets for selling scripts, apps, CMS etc. is in Europe and America, it would be really important to adapt Codoforum and FreiChat to these new laws.
Well, that's all I wanted to say apart from that, as always, thank you very much for your work - keep up the good work, you're great!
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:
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?
I'm sorry I haven't been here every day for the past few weeks. I've been doing this for years and I enjoy it, even now. The fact is that I had an incident in my private environment which is currently keeping me very busy and taking up a lot of my time. But this will pass and I will soon be checking in here every day again.
I wish you all the best, keep up the good work and I will still check here 1-2 times a week until everything is back to normal.
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
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.
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:

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.
