  • Re: GoDaddy to Amazon Web Service

    .< I'm so mad right now at how much I have to worry/deal with hosting....I have an email list of 200k users and I HIGHLY doubt GoDaddy will support more than 3000 users even with my upgraded resources on GoDaddy....Amazon was the only thing I thought could handle 200k-1mil+ users because amazon is scalable. FYI: I am launching my own start-up and it's built on Vanilla open source, and pretty much all the people I know that are doing start-ups are doing AWS.........I just want to focus on my content >.<, but at the same time I don't want to disappoint users with a crashed website at 20k users....

  • Vanilla Private vs Public.....Sharing discussions gets affected and it reduces attraction

    I find this really annoying and dumb, but when you share a discussion using social share (Facebook) and your forum is public, the discussion's image and title appears in the shared link. However, where it gets ugly is when you change your forum to private--that's when any discussions that are shared using social share are displays as Sign In, along with a logo of your website......

    The ugly workaround for this was sharing lots of discussions with my forum being public, and then afterwards I change it to private, so the shared discussions still render as discussion title + image shared in discussion...

    Is there a way to share discussion in a private forum without losing the ability to have the shared link display as "Discussion title + image shared"?

  • Re: Adding more social Share icons

    I noticed that my discussions lagged when opening because the Facebook share button connected, so I changed all of them to make them fit in:

  • Leaderboard Css

    The leaderboard's css was getting messed up because some of my users had long names (the points box was getting pushed down a row), so @R_J wrote this css code that fixed the issue.

    .Leaderboard .PanelInfo > li {
    position: relative;
    .Leaderboard .Aside {
    position: absolute;
    top: 1px;
    right: 4px;

  • Re: An idea for Vanilla Forums to create the first community book

    @hgtonight said:
    I don't like the idea of making the community "pay for help" which is what offering bounties essentially does.

    Do you really want to attract developers whose sole purpose is to get them sweet bounties?

    Definitely don't want to attract those types of developers, but at the same time I'd like to offer something for the awesome help I get. I suppose paypal donation is the best thing and my whole idea about bounties is flawed.
