After February 6, this site will no longer have Facebook, Twitter, or OpenID sign-in options. Read our announcement about social media SSO support in 2.8 for more info.

Make sure you have a current, valid email address set in your profile and set a password so you can login without it. If you get locked out after that time, you can choose "Forgot Password" to fix it as long as a valid email is on your account.

Community repository is now open source

LincLinc Director of DevelopmentDetroit Vanilla Staff

Hello, world:

This open sources ALL the extra code running the community forum, including:

  • Addons directory (previously open, but privately forked)
  • Our custom homepage
  • All "phone home" page code in Vanilla
  • Our current theme
  • The beginnings of our next theme

We are not granting a license to use our theme design. It is still copyrighted by Vanilla Forums, Inc. In other words, this is not a pass for creating clones of this site.

I am hereby requesting a security audit of the phone-home code & addons directory. Obviously we've reviewed it again before open sourcing, but I'm anxious to have it inspected again by its newly-enlarged audience.

I'll be writing a README & licenses shortly. My first priority was getting it public & renamed, which took quite a while. :)

Here we go!
