A few months ago our forum software started showing its age. We were using older software, but since many sites were still using it, the company behind it continued to release security updates. But they announced that they would no longer support this version. Rather than upgrading our community to a version that I had only seen complaints about, I finally changed the board software completely.
We were able to seamlessly transfer ALL members and content to the new software, and we started to develop the style of the forum.
In doing so, we also started to reorganize. We’ve created new chat rooms, based on chat threads commonly found elsewhere.
We’re still working on the graphics and the art, but we enjoyed it thanks to all the new features that modern forum software brings.
You should also see that the forum is now super easy to use on a mobile device. That’s right, you can read it and answer anything on your cell phone, just like you would on your computer!
New features include:
- Multi-user group messaging
- GIPHY integration
- Tag other users in a post
- Link flow (so we can see a preview of the content you are linking to)
- Multimedia integration (so if you link to a video on a popular video website like YouTube, it will automatically become an embedded video)
And that’s just the beginning !
If you have been a member of our community before, welcome back! Otherwise, join us and have fun chatting about Narnia together!
