Two months ago we noticed that someone had found a security exploit in the IP.Board forum software to randomly redirect our visitors to other sites. It turned out this was done through a forum feature that we did not even use (or want), but it was still there, dormant, vulnerable to an attack. Although none of our user accounts were compromised at this time, we still felt that we could not trust the software anymore and shut it down immediately.
I decided right away to write my own replacement forum, from scratch. By doing this I could make it just the way I wanted it and have full control over its future. It also meant I could export all the old forum data, convert it to my own format and not lose any posts.
It has been a lot of work, but today the first version of the forum is ready to go live. Here are some main features and instructions:
Let me know if something is broken, or behaving odd in your browser.
Excellent work! So clean. The category buttons are brillant, and the automatic embedded media support is very nifty.
really nice job with the forum
theres a little overlap of the txt box over the markup help
looks like this ...
Oh, the box is resizable and you can pull it over the markup help, but it should not cover it by default. What browser version and OS are you on, I'll see if I can get the same problem somehow.
safari 6.1.6 on 10.7.5
dragging the box doesn't seem to work on my outdated browser
Next to each post is a quote button that will insert the quoted text in the post editor. The full post will be quoted, but you can easily remove unneeded lines in the editor.
Clicking on quote button does not work for me: the text of the initial post does not appear in post editor. (OS X Yosemite 10.10.4, Safari 8.0.5)
EDIT: it just started to work after I have disabled/enabled the AdBlock plugin. Will try to examine this further.
