Hello I am looking for popular Vanilla forums (Forums that run on Vanilla) to get some inspiration from.
Even if it's not popular I would still like to see your forums. Would you care to share them here for me?
http://www.uphondo.com is my humble vanilla forum. Please leave a link to your if you do not mind as well
I cannot show https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/ enough. I love everything about it.
Check out the Documentation! We are always looking for new content and pull requests.
Click on insightful, awesome, and funny reactions to thank community volunteers for their valuable posts.
Nice theme ValentineMasina. I like the look of it. I have several now but not worked on them. My latest is http://droneflyers.club its a forum for drone flying / drone racing enthusiasts. I need a nicer theme though!
My website is http://cloudchaser.us which is a newer site that I am folding http://community.cloudchaser.us into as its commenting system and inherent community.
The forum gets about 50,000-80,000 page views a month, which isn't too bad.
@idealmike Hey thats cool, my site is a drone site too, but focused on cool content
My forum is http://adogay.ovh/ (domain name go to be changed)
I've http://vanillaforums.fr too.
@LucasKA thanks thats cool. What you saying about my content? lol only joking. Is all your content user submitted then? Tried to submit but page not found. Mines new still working on it we're in beta but you're welcome to join.
@idealmike lol I meant that yours is about drone flying/how to and mine is about content you make with a drone.
It's a combination of curated, submitted and original content.
Try the new submit form. I revamped it the other day
@LucasKA ah right yeah see its for UAV footage etc I don't have that but was hoping for a guest post for you.
@idealmike Totally submit it!
What sort of things do you accept? Is there a minimum text limit. Will have my links in yer? I'm thinking of posting some of my articles on http://dronewatchdogs.com to it. Some are drone how to guides, some are just cool stuff.
I just fixed things on the forum, I had a custom theme but it was broken, just moved to bootstrap. It still needs a lot of work, but mostly users
@lorddfg @idealmike @jackmaessen @LucasKA @ValentineMasina <= They forums use Bootstrap Theme. There has already too many sites that use bootstrap
@lorddfg was you using bbs forums before? You should change your bbs url to forum or something??
@K17 yes only temporarily for me. I'm only using it while waiting for update to iFruit. Its taking a while though!
Actually we build a custom theme for Totseans, but I just changed it to bootstrap since the old theme had issues with newer updates and it was a hassle to keep fixing things. Currently changing colors and other bits.
Regarding BBS it's well a tribute to Totse BBS, this website is actually an off shot Totse.com which shutdown on Jan 2009. Totse.com was launched on the web in 1997 before that it was a Dialup BBS, pretty famous in 1980's for it's collection of text files.
Here is what it looked like before it went down.
@idealmike What were you looking for in that sense, would you want it to be posted as a guest post by you or would you rather it be linked to? I'm building up a "Resources" page for things like that "Which drones to buy" article, but I can do a featured article too, especially if it's a guest post.
@K17 Theres nothing wrong with bootstrap, it creates a clean, usable forum. Why spend all your time tweaking a theme, when you can spend time building traffic?
