Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

    Hello Linc I'm new to the forum, i'm currently trying to set up a forum on my tumblr blog but i'm not very familiar with how to set it up. I've downloaded vanilla open source and currently have my folder on my PC open where it is saved. It has version 2.5 and what appears to be sub categories? I'm not entirely sure where to go to find, lets say a piece of code to copy and paste or something else entire. So i figured Id reach out to you for help.

    Hi Linc. I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask... I could sure make use of the SAML Addon that is offered to your paid subscribers. Since you guys are on Vanilla v.2.5... could you guys open up the source for your SAML addon that worked with vanilla version 2.2 / 2.3.? I do believe that opening up that Addon could draw more vanilla users for you guys. Thanks. Donovan

    when I look at some discussions it say this at the top of the page.

    "Please upgrade to 2.1.x here. The 2.0 branch is no longer being updated."

    May I suggest upgrade to 2.2 since everyone says 2.1.x has security issues and 2.2 is better.
