Huge Upcoming Forum Update!

These changes will be available to donors this September via the UGX-Mods Beta Program

We've been working very hard to make some huge visual and usability improvements to the current forum design. We've had the same forum style for the last 5 years and we've very well aware it's totally outdated and ugly now ;)


We aim to totally re-style the forum to look fresh and current. You will notice the theme is now blue instead of red, and the style of it is more minimalist and sleek. Huge credit goes to Alexander "Delta" Diller for heading the development of CKEditor for our SMF forum as well as making a ton of improvements and cleanup to the new forum theme design I started earlier this year :boss:

Probably the biggest improvements to the forum so far is the addition of a mobile-friendly/responsive design and a WYSIWYG editor for making forum posts (known as CKEditor). The new editor will allow you to see how your posts/replies will look in realtime while you write them! No more messing with BBC or source text and guessing how everything will look before hitting the preview button. Of course anyone who still prefers to write in pure source/bbc can still do so with the new editor :)

UGX Donators <3 have been given many in-depth updates, screenshots, gifs, and videos of this forum update for the last few months, and now it's finally time for us to show some it publicly to everyone ;)

If you would like to access a beta of the new forum style and editor, you can do so by becoming a UGX Donator. The beta will be available soon (hopefully within the next 2 weeks if everything goes according to schedule)

Just as a simple idea, it would be nice if there were some themes or colours that you could change for the site individually (for example, I'm not exactly fond of the blue theme used here, I'd prefer it to be red instead).

Would that be able to work?

Pretty sure he confirmed this a while back, think there will be set colors. :P

Yes in the future we plan to have different color schemes, in technically any color your want. (purple fans are excited)

But this is not a high priority now, there are many huge changes coming up.
We introduce more color schemes once we are happy with the base foundation and after some beta feedback
