I like this thing. I posted something in a VBulleting style forum, and told the usrs there, to come by and take a spin on my new forums, to which one reply was, the particular forum I'm using is not bloated with a plethora of goodies, and I told the poster, that I was reverting back to the Zen of Minimalism. Which should be the case where the Internet/WWW is concerned.

Anyway, I decided to look for a new format board for my other forums, and I chanced upon yours. So much for talking about minimalism. This is really nice. And it gets to what you really need to do. Communicate.

I think I'll try it out, and see. I like simplicity in boards and most things.

Thank you for sharing this with the Community.

I'm brand new to miniBB, I've been struggling with getting yabb up and running on my netware.
24 hours ago I finally did it, yabb is working perfectly.
Then I talked to a guy who was using miniBB, I tried it out, and just threw away all the yabb work, and installed miniBB in 30 minuttes, this is a really cool forum handler.
There could be improvements (of course), but it's small potatoes, and a lof of the improvements is to be made in the design. The design is lacking what the code has.
But as I'm not experienced at all in CSS I can't make my own designs. It would be nice to have more designs available, with explanations of how to easyli change the colours used, logos etc.

Well, I haven't been here for a long, long time (since back when MiniBB was at 1.1)

But I thought I would drop by to see how the board is proggressing.

I can confidently say - I am still very amazed. The fact that you have such a small, fast forum with all the features that you would want for a decent-sized forum community is excellent. At the same time, the forums are incredibly customizable that can fit into almost any site layout.

Brilliant work, Team.

Looking over the code reminds me of vbulletins sloppy arse code.. This looks like the devs read over all vbs code then made this.. Prob no copy and pasting but var names and ugly syntaxing is the same.

Let us be honest... MiniBB was written from scratch, from zero, we didn't ever look at monsters like VBulletin or PHPBB... simply because we don't like them! We have written this board to fit OUR needs, and we are very happy that many people also like it. Thanks to them :)

Recently i've gone on the mission of checking out every single good forum and finding the best one out there to use on my website :)

I must say, even with the lack of "essential" features like avatars, signatures and other trinkets like those, minibb definitely makes my top 5, by far!

It's fast, easy to install, use and not even bad to look at.
The interface to edit the read only forums/post only forums and all that is really well made, i thought.

Keep up the good work!

If you don't like it, change it or don't use it ;)

i just wanna say :
i was searching for PHP code for a forum for a site i am working on, they were either too complex (my users aren't that computer literate, i.e. not geeks) or not professional-looking/feeling enough.

MiniBB was just the right balance, even my mum can use it!!!

I didn't experience any refreshing problems in Opera

That's a common problem when using proxies or a bad server setting, wrong Timezone can be the fault, too.

1.Using HTML is very risky.
2.Not everybody knows HTML (let's say - very small amount of users)
3.JavaScript is not used in miniBB as important thing, this is just a decoration, so it doesn't matter, is it turned on or not.
4.HTML code is optimized - we have written it BY HAND, without WYSIWYG. So, there is no necessarity in compression.

P.S.Refreshing in Opera was not miniBB's bug, probably it depends on your Internet connection.

AND: It doesn't really matter how big the whole script is... IMO it's important that the produced HTML-code is optimized (NO font-Tags, etc..)

Thanks a lot!

THIS is a very useful forum!
But: I don't like UBB-Code (why learn another formatting language??? HTML should be ok.)
I don't like JavaScript (actually I turned JavaScript off (Popups))

AND: HTTP-Compression would be nice too!
