News and Announcements
Codoforum v 4.8 released

It is a pleasure to announce the release of the new version of codoforum v4.8

Some highlights in this release:

Chat
We have been working on instant messenger feature - FreiChat; for past couple of months. We have now integrated it with codoforum, so you should now be able to see that at bottom right corner of this forum.

You can enable this feature from your forum by first upgrading the FreiChat plugin then enabling it in the Settings:

Docker
We have created a docker image for codoforum with all dependencies which installs itself automatically. So now with one single command you can install any version(>v4.7) of codoforum easily on your local or development setups.

Role colors
It is now possible to give unique styles to every role. We have added a new option in the backend under UI Elements -> Role colors

You can simply give the desired color or put your own styles in css for a given role:

New settings/configuration

You can switch between logo and site title and upload your logo for your site header.

You can now configure whether to use username or email or both for the login screen. This configuration is also applied for the admin login.

Codoforum had issues with cached css where icons were not loaded when you switched between http/https or www/without www. This has finally been fixed, and now it will even work for multiple domains pointing to the same forum. There are also other couple of bug fixes in this release.

As always, you can directly upgrade the forum from your backend or download and install the new version from https://codoforum.com

Wow! This update looks amazing. The new chat system looks incredible and will boost the forum for sure.

I'm just sad that I did a lot of customization and tweaks on both my codoforums instalations and now I'm afraid I'll lose everything since I did not took notes of the files I changed. Ouch, my mistake Lol smile

Time for a full backup and updating the system! Here we go!

Did you customize the theme or the codoforum code ? If its a new theme then you wouldn't have to change anything.

Hi mate,

in general it is always a bad idea to change source code of a app or program. Other with themes - if You did changes to the theme its mostly quite ok.

In future if You will do changes at the softwares main code its the best if You try to write a plugin for the feature You need.

A other nice option is also to make use of the CodoForum "Blocks" (to find at the "UI-Panel"smile - if You use it right its really a powerful option to implement new features.

Kind regards,

Andy

Changes to the code to fix some bugs and to change a few things. My mistake was not taking notes as I usually do, but luckily performed a backup before updating the system and will be fine with it. smile

Thanks for the tips @WebCrew . I was sloppy this time and worked on fixes and tweaks straight on the code, due to lack of time. But will do things organized from now on.
