ACC, Kunena and the future?!?


#21

pEp,

make an account on all of them so i can show you the backend :wink: !!


#22

I like the myBB


#23

I’ve made an account on mybb, but I had to swap the theme before I could! The red version doesn’t give you the option.


#24

there was a menu - top left, but i’ve put it back to default. You’re now an admin etc!

do the same on codoforum to compare/contrast


#25

Coco doesn’t like me. Had 2 errors from php when I registered and then a fatal error when clicking the email confirmation link.


#26

I can’t stand Windows 8 but I like nodeBB.

MyBB seems very similar to the current setup. Is there any need to change to something so similar?

On Codo, there’s an enormous sidebar which seems a bit unnecessary.


#27

MyBB offers really good moderation features which we simply don’t have on this board. And a decent PM system. And it’s essentially a phpBB board for those that liked the old look.


#28

Now…
this looks great fun:

it’s Discourse!


#29

Hi all,

I’ve managed to get the importer working for the Discourse install for testing.

http://acc.maia-internet.com

your accounts are there but you’ll need to do a password reset to login.

All the posts as of midnight last night are there - it’s totally separate from the current forum so post away!

cheers

I’m a ruby guy if you decide to go with discourse and need a hand with anything tricky.


#31

That’s great to know - this is my first foray into Ruby/Rails/Docker so I might need a hand :wink:

What do you think of it so far?

cheers

Hello all, it has been a long time, but I’ve popped up again.

FB exploded yesterday with a publicly visible thread about the social media policy, so it looks like there is still a need for somewhere out of sight where people (of all ages) can chew the fat. That particular thread disappeared - coincidentally minutes after the 2011 SMP got posted on it - oh bitter sweet irony!

Anyhooo, so far as functionality goes, so long as its simple enough for a comparitive technophobe to moderate, and serves a purpose in perhaps keeping some of the stuff in fb etc appearing in public view I’m very happy to be led by the technophiles.


#34

The ACC Disccourse BETA hasn’t seen much activity thus far - have a look, reset your password and let me know what you think.

If you’re a mod here, you’re a mod there!

Cheers

PS - give it a minute, it’s server is updating!


#35

It’s all up and running B)


#36

I’m not keen on discourse. It looks very clean but I just don’t like the structure of it.


#37

Just logged in and had a play…overall Iike the simplicity of it and the mod tools seem intuitive and easy.


#38

thanks guys,

what is it about the structure? The way it’s shown on the screen - ie by latest post or category etc???

Edit:

could you have a play using the mod tools and looking into the wiki function - looks interesting!


#39

One issue that I’m not sure of.

In the User table all emails are visable to me. IS this just on a Mod/Admin account or are all user emails visable to all accounts? Just a PERSEC problem possibly.


#40

it should be just for mods/admins

can you post the url and i’ll check with my ‘regular’ user account
