Huge Upcoming Forum Update!
These changes will be available to donors this September via the UGX-Mods Beta Program (page coming soon)Click here to continue reading...
We've been working very hard to make some huge visual and usability improvements to the current forum design. We've had the same forum style for the last 5 years and we've very well aware it's totally outdated and ugly now
We aim to totally re-style the forum to look like it should in 2016. You will notice the theme is now blue instead of red, and the style of it is more minimalist and sleek. Huge credit goes to Alexander "Delta" Diller for heading the development of CKEditor for our SMF forum as well as making a ton of improvements and cleanup to the new forum theme design I started earlier this year
Probably the biggest improvements to the forum so far is the addition of a mobile-friendly view and a WYSIWYG editor for making forum posts (known as CKEditor). The new editor will allow you to see how your posts/replies will look in realtime while you write them! No more messing with BBC or source text and guessing how everything will look before hitting the preview button. Of course anyone who still prefers to write in pure source/bbc can still do so with the new editor
have been given many in-depth updates, screenshots, gifs, and videos of this forum update for the last few months, and now it's finally time for us to show some it publicly to everyone
If you would like to access a beta of the new forum style and editor, you can do so by becoming a UGX Donator
. The beta will be available soon (hopefully within the next 2 weeks if everything goes according to schedule)CKEditor - The New Way To Reply/Post/Edit on U
