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" 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.
When a user changes there password, requests a password reset, changes account info, deletes a post, and so on Codoforum should log the action in some page in the /admin page with stuff like browser agent, IP, and time/date, account, and so on.
A ability for a admin to login as a user on the forums through the admin backpage. This can be used to troubleshoot issues with people's accounts if they arise. This would be done by clicking a button and would not need a password. Or is there a plugin to do this?
...... a background image. If I would be better with SQL and PHP I would simply try to copy the "avatar upload feature" of CF and convert it to a header upload feature, but sadly I`m only good with CSS and HTML (and a tiny little bit PHP knowledge).
You have already created a great modern platform with Codoforum. I think CF is not getting the attention it deserves.
Lately, it seems to me that you've lost a bit of interest and courage to bring the platform to a higher level. We do not see you in the forum that often anymore and also real new achievements are happen not that often anymore.
Please do not give up, Codoforum is great. Give the forum some updates such as:
a slightly nicer post layout (especially for pictures Uplaods)
more features with the user profiles such as a header image per profile and style adjustments regarding the new user fields in the backend (CF is used by game guilds and guilds love to have nice user profiles)
the plugin and design marketplace, because if this is available, then maybe more developers come up with the idea to settle in the forum and the support does not just depend on you
Please update the CF to PHP 7.3, there are still PHP error messages related to it
You made it so far and Codoforum could become a real alternative to forums systems like XenForo, WBB or MyBB.
I would be very happy if you find your drive again and would like to thank you for your efforts. CF and FC are outstanding and You guys are great!
it would be fantastic if You can develop a FreiChat SSO Module also for the HumHub CMS. Its a Social Network CMS based on Yii2 Framework and it has a fast growing community at the Moment around 200K+ Users.
You have a very good chance to sell many of your premium licenses of FreiChat cause HumHub has so far only a simple messenger and the community is urgently looking for a good chat solution.
We have just installed FREICHAT business version and although the "Chat" tool is extremely good value the Video does need a little work. 1) The Chat incorporated in the video section does not always work (I shall be raising a trouble-ticket for this but thought it wise to mention it here) 2) The page that opens for chat could do with a bit of color is there anyway one can either add a "Background" or color to the page background? If not the take it as a suggestion. 3) the idea of a separate pop up window for video I do understand but an Option to have it "Embedded" inside the same window as the CHAT module from where you initially launch the video would be nice. Or atleast let it pop-up in the Chat room window or something as users having to leave the page they are on is somewhat not always a desirable behavior for website owners. 4) Most importantly what about "Screen Share"? You have Screen Capture but Screen share is the feature most desired in any video conference tool. Whistles and bells features are nice but it is "Screen Share" that does the magic.
first of all, a big thank for this innovative forum with using of last technologies like responsive design thanks to HTML5 and CSS3.
I would suggest to add a new setting beside "Hide topic messages" and "Enable infinite scrolling" : the possibility to display directly in full rendering aspect the forum instead to click to "read more" link. This option very usefull for small forum allow a logical display with the right formating choosen by the writers. By example, it is indeed curious to see the quotes text part mixing with the answer. If you don't want to have a too big user settings part in the frontend, this choice can be put else in the backend part.
