Unfortunately no one can be told what FluxBB is - you have to see it for yourself.

Status of FluxBB

So FluxBB was my free open source alternative and it started with a big bang!  Everyone I knew was talking about FluxBB and how cool it was.  Fast forward to the here and now and it seems as though little if any information is forthcoming.

What is the status of FluxBB?
Is it still in development?
How many developers are actually working on FluxBB?

Re: Status of FluxBB

Yes, we're still alive and actively working on v2.0.

So who is working on v2 and how many developers are there?

Re: Status of FluxBB

It's mostly me working on 2.0, some others are jumping in to contribute from time to time.

I can't reproduce the "forbidden" message on the donations page, even when I log out. Can you post a screenshot? Is that error message in our site design or thrown by the webserver?

Also, you can now post links. New users usually cannot post links until they've made their fifth post, that's an anti-spam measure.

Re: Status of FluxBB

I'm prety sure it's the random "Forbidden" error I get sometimes too, not styled. I made a ticket about it a while ago...

I sometimes get this when I visit the forums, but only when I visit as a guest using the HTTPS connection for the first time that browsing session. I refresh the page several times then the forum appears as normal and I don't get it again.

Re: Status of FluxBB

I get this error completely at random, reloading doesn't work always...

Re: Status of FluxBB

Seems just a bad link, either in "navlinlk()" function of the forum, or more likely the copy (with modifications) on fluxbb.org…
(meant the index.php)

Re: Status of FluxBB

Without editing the php code be gone a fake mobile version. You have to write the new templates. Better 1.x leave it as it is. I try to make motifs responsive. I have a problem phones also have full HD, and useragent example. Chromebook or pc to android. I think you should rethink fluxbb2, many people like FluxBB because it is simple, easy to modify for each other, and the installation on localhost FluxBB 2 is the problem. Especially under Windows machine. Of course I will try to somehow give your mobile style air, but without js there's no way. Because I give css menu on mobilu it at the touch of the effect of disappearing when clicked. Even if we fix the template that spoil compatibility. Zero info about FluxBB and people ask. When? When the beta? And when the church, everyone is using it now, it should be standard if the subscription is that hardly anyone uses.

Re: Status of FluxBB

I'll make sure the README contains detailed, up-to-date instructions next week.

I'm not willing to jump through hoops to make installing the dev version as easy as it will be for the final version. Just a bit of Composer and other command-line stuff, it's not too complicated. smile

Re: Status of FluxBB

Fluxbb 1.x - only localhost portable - simple http://www.webserv.pl/
Fluxbb 2 download and install :
-Virtualbox
-Vagrant
- app git

1 localhost from x cms and web project.
This should work on a regular localhost.
Where mobile, substitution, gifs small video in HTML5. FluxBB has no mobile theme, what we create is a mobile themes on pc, on the phone you operate with your finger, the elements must be greater, the logic of action is different.

Should I be adding pm in FluxBB, you need to go in the direction of users, many of them moving away from FluxBB due to lack pm. I mean am based on the code of topics, ie, private discussions, eg, 5 persons.

Re: Status of FluxBB

You don't need Vagrant etc. to install v2. The only thing you really need is a localhost and Composer.
