Beta is a bit delayed, as always. wink
End of this month, hopefully.

Great news, though at first I was cautious about all the directions we were taking, after using FeatherBB, I have a more open mind.

Moreover, there is really no need to rush to another BB system since FluxBB is and will be maintained for some time.


I understand there are modifications for FluxBB to add these features, and normally I would suggest they're perfectly suitable for the task, but I'm also in the process of turning the operation of my community over to another administrator and I would rather have this functionality in the core so they don't have to grapple with maintaining it, supporting it, reapplying the mods after updates and risking having the attachments and private messages break should we need to move the database across to another forum later on, especially since retrocomputing enthusiasts seem to be very pedantic about "preserving information".

I don't mean to advertise here, but my fork has all these features. You can see the link in my signature if you're interested.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

My idea, one engine, two GUI. One GUI based js, two GUI no based js. It is compromis.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

Actually no, it's not. What is really sad is that most people here can't seem to get past their initial blunt refusal of the JS frontend and realize that there's work done behind the frontend to provide a powerful core and API. I haven't seen a single comment here focusing on anything else than the JS frontend and the choice of Laravel. Hopefully when the beta is released people will start using their brain instead of their personal tastes and we can have a serious talk about the future of FluxBB/Flarum.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

Think so. Right now all people do is complain about JS, but I'd be curious to know how much actually installed and tested Flarum, or at least took a look at how Flarum is built and what it could provide with a JS-free interface. From what I've read from the discuss on Flarum that's the point of having three separate part (core, API and frontend), isn't it? Provide the possibility to built a complete JS-free frontend?

Maybe not the point, but certainly a handy sideeffect.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

Makes sense smile Anyway, haters gonna hate, so better stay consistent: Flarum is FluxBB, the Beta should be announced here as well. If anything, to let those who didn't make up their mind yet that there's work being done.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

checked out the current discuss.flarum.org : you are viewing the html-version ... had to disable my popup-blocker to make it work.

I did not recognize "branch"-like subforums - I assume neither all of our board users visit all subforums regulary, nor are they interested to assume via "tags" how their threads were marked.

There is really much "fancy stuff" within the "post context"-zone (below the texts) ... like "bla liked it", "blubb replied to it" ... this is context sensitive stuff - but stuff only of interest for a very low amount of users (assumption). I understand that this are things hideable via skin - but "first look" often decides.
Nonetheless that "visual" thing is something I just "personally" dislike.

Hi Franz,

Just downloaded the beta, will be kicking the tires on my Debian "Jessie" VirtualBox machine.

After having spent the last month knee deep in Bootstrap, I've come to appreciate the concept of mobile-friendly.

Right now it's FeatherBB or Flarum who are in the responsive race, who will win?

Most of that are extensions (packaged with the forum and currently enabled by default, but you can easily throw them out). The core itself contains only the absolute basics, possibly even less features than FluxBB.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

@extensions
I am assuming that already - was just a basic / first glance review of what I saw.

I am sure Flarum is something "good" - but still not the "successor" (imho!) of fluxxb.

Will have to see what the "non-js"-theme of flarum is looking alike.

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

[Edit, post above got deleted, was a spam post]

Above is just a copy of my posting above, so (user) "Jackie.chan3146" is a spambot.

Please remove the spam user (and after this, my post to keep things clean).


Maybe it is a good idea to activate captchas for fluxbb (I am only using my captcha-addon and get less spam than fluxbb.org)

Re: 2.0: Joining forces with Flarum

I reported spammers many times in the past ... and suggested multiple times then to add another anti-spam-addon.

This time I thought I better reply with a bit more content so it might convince admins to extend bot-prevention.


Edit: just (11:14 CET) visited the board and got this:

fluxbbspamomu0f.png

Maybe this shows how "important" it gets to activate anti-spam enhancements.




Ok. enough offtopic.
