Hallo @admin

I am ask You if You would be so kind and extend CF with a little upgrade for our Member Profile pages. I`m talking about a Profile header image. So instead of the color gradient....:

.top-custom-container-profile {
    background: #844aa6;
    background: linear-gradient(to right,#844aa6 0%,#5a7fee 100%);
    min-height: 160px;

...... 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).

All I can do and suggest is something like:


.top-custom-container-profile {
  width: 100%;
  height: 240px;
  background-image: url('profile_header.jpg');
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: contain;
  border: none;

Best regards and thx a lot for Your work.

Is there any variable or something to change to made codoforum works on SSL site https or I have to change all the urls in files to not have that errors?

Powdered milk is wealthy in calcium and low in energy similar to 1%, skim or 2% dairy milk. But, because all the water has been removed, powdered milk does not water down this beverage.

Since Freichat was an offloaded service, it was very difficult to change the look and feel of FreiChat, The upcoming release of FreiChat will have a nice backend to Manage Appearance as well as Translations (The release will also include plenty of bug fixes).

Here is a screenshot of what it looks after you play around with the colors,


Do let us know if you have any feedback.

@admin @adesh

Hello Adesh.

I use an SSL certificate on my domain and together with Codoforum, I unfortunately get the message that the SSL together with CF only works limited - so there are probably files or scripts which are not offered or integrated via SSL or secure enough.

Can it be that the FreiChat server of you does not run on SSL?

If so, here is a tip:

There is a free really good SSL certificate that anyone who has SSH or shell access can easily activate and use for free. The provider is part of the Linux Open Source distribution and calls itself Let's Encrypt - maybe that would be something for you at Codologic?

Here is the link to Lets Encrypt Service:

Kind regards, Andy

As a new PHP programer I am testing to insert datas into my database. Every things are showing me that the codes are well. For example I test the connection to my database it's fine:
I am using PHP 7.3.10 on Windows 10
$conn = new mysqli("localhost", "root", "", "login"smile;

if ($conn->connect_error) {

die("ERROR: Unable to connect: " . $conn->connect_error);


echo 'Connected to the database.

$result = $conn->query("SELECT * FROM usuario"smile;

echo "Number of rows: $result->num_rows";




//I receive this message:

Connected to the database.
Number of rows: 2



mysqli_query($link,"insert into table1 values('$_POST[t1]','$_POST[t2]'smile"smile;



When I insert data ist doesnt show any error. But when I check in phpMysql there is nothing. Ouuuf, I passed days to resolv this. But nothing!!!

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

Some highlights in this release:

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:


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

Hallo Community,

our superhero and Codologic mastermind smile@admin (Adesh) has answered a topic of a user who had problems with his SMTP settings. I thought it would be a good idea to share Adesh`s answer at the tutorials section of CF.

Here we go:


Gmail has made its SMTP authentication more strict. You will have to do two things:

Open security checkup :

There it will probably show a critical issue saying there was a recent sign in from a server (your server)
You need to say it was you and allow access.

Then you need to allow access from 3rd party apps by enabling this setting:

If you have multiple gmail accounts, make sure you are doing above steps using the account that you have configured in codoforum.

Another thing you can try is change protocol to tls and port to 587

At the first attempt I received a mail from google saying that this is a less secure app and I need to create a app password for this action. I created one and its still not working but now i didn't receive email regarding this "less secure app". Then I changed from SMTP to mail() but its not working. :c
mail() attempt:
SMTP attempt: (SMTP connection failed)

Hi Adesh smile

I'm just wondering how is it possible to activate the blog? Do you use another blog CMS like Post Leaf or is it just a Codoforum forum category turned into a blog? If so, could you please explain to me (and the community) how did you do that?

Thank you very much and best regards from Germany to Ireland smile
