Congrats with the release, haven't installed it yet, but it sounds great :)

Yeah same here. I think I'm going to install it and test it  out. Might upgrade my current SMF forums to it if there is a converter (shouldn't be hard to make, right?)

So to make it clear, I can install SMF modifications and themes on ezForum? It's all supported? :o

Are there any special features that will come with this alpha version that's not in SMF?

Also can I upgrade an SMF forum into ezForum?


Offtopic / How tall are you?
« on: July 08, 2012, 06:28:30 am »
Just wonder how tall the members of ezForum are.

I am 5' 10"

Wish I was taller though because I play basketball a lot.. and you know, height matters when basketball is concerned.

First forum: It was on gaming.
Software: Proboards

I was really into gaming and wanted to be the next online hit. I saw sites like IGN and I was instantly hyped about creating a site just as big. Sadly, those wishes never came true :'(

Yes, it's helpful for the community!

It's also a great way to encourage posting and submitting content to the forum. I all in for it and know for a fact that badge systems and other features that award members for posting, have positive effects.

Anyways, this should defiantly be something that comes out of the box with the forum software.

SMS notifications would be great but I'm not sure if a member would like to get a SMS notification for every reply. I dont think full replies made on the forum can be sent through SMS due to the limit, but I'm not sure.

I would love if ezForum had it's own mobile site. Maybe call is ezCellForum?

But anyways no matter what it's called, I have a feeling it's going to be very useful.


I believe this will allow webmasters to arrange their forums as this.

Board 1 ->
Board 2- ->

If it does then that will be a great feature. There are handful of admins who are always requesting features such as those and they usually run gaming forums. They want to give games or clans, their own forum but allow all site members to gain access to those "sub forums" that are hosted on a subdomain. 

This will be very appealing to them.

It would be great if it had the Xenforo approach to theme design. Xenforo allows admins to change colors and other theme related settings straight from their CP.

Also, I think it would be beneficial in ezForum had a basic theme and a very sleek modern theme out of the box. Although the modern theme could wait till the feature, I think ezForum defiantly needs a basic theme that is customizable by noob admins as well as pros.

Will be reaching out to past mod/theme developers on SMF.
One thing that really discourages me from doing more free mods for SMF is i know the review time is months and the more complex the mod I make the longer it takes to review so it is better for me to write basic mods in that case.


It would be great if ezForum had dedicated staff members whose only job is to review mods. The SMF apparently have to do other duties from what I know and have seen but this shouldn't be the case with ezForum.

By having a quick reviewing process, ezForum will encourage developers to submit their modifications and basically get them to increase their development production.

Perhaps I missed something but I am not seeing this "activity stream". OP, can you please show me a screenshot or something?

If such a a feature can be implanted then yes, it would be pretty cool.
