Could you elaborate a bit more on which steps you tried for installing FlaskBB?

its not possible. the www is open to everybody.

Thats simply not true.

Just go to the management panel --> forums tab --> and select the groups you like to have access to the forum.

Nah, because on a site I was frequenting a lot before I made FlaskBB they had a feature called 'Topic Tracker' and the name stuck with me.

Thank you!
Try these steps:

  1. Go to Management
  2. Go to Plugins panel

Hope this helps!

Hey, not a bot! πŸ˜…

@ctrl yeah I already saw your message and made you a language coordinate.

Hey @ctrl,

yes I'd appreciate any help!

You usually translate the language strings on transifex and I'll pull in the languages to the source repository of FlaskBB from time to time (which, I haven't done in quite some time when I think about it..).

If you tell me you username (you can PM it to me) I could add you as the language coordinator (translate, review and manage the language team) of the german language.

Regarding the spam on the forums, I know it's really annoying and I am usually visiting the forums on a daily basis as well. I haven't found a way to prevent those spam posts yet even though I have activated the reCAPTCHA and account activation feature.


check out the Flask Mega-Tutorial by Miguel Grinberg here: https://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/the-flask-mega-tutorial-part-i-hello-world
In my opinion it is one of the best resources to get to know Flask.

Thanks, you too!

What is the question? Was ist die frage?

Actually, I have been inspired by FluxBB and MyBB ;)

Thanks for the kind words! ☺️

Hey, welcome on board πŸ™‚ πŸ‘‹!

The Purge is complete -- over 1000 user accounts were deleted.

PS: I am sorry if I deleted a non spam/bot account.


I'll be deleting all accounts with less than 1 post in the next couple of days.
Most of these accounts are spam accounts.

Thanks for the info!

btw, you could also create your own "wsgi.py" file and point your configuration to it.


sorry for the confusion but the landing page (flaskbb.org/*) are just a couple of static pages -- and the forum (forums.flaskbb.org) is running FlaskBB.

The code for the flaskbb website is here: https://github.com/flaskbb/flaskbb-website

translates as: "Have a test"


Hehe. I really have to implement the ability to change topic titles again..

Yeah, as @shing said, you have to set up a reverse proxy. There is a section about that in the documentation (i.e. for nginx: https://flaskbb.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation.html#nginx)

Glad I could help @shing! :)

It depends on your configuration but by default it should store the logs in the flaskbb/logs directory.

Glad you like it!

PS: Not sure if you have noticed the lack of activity around FlaskBB - it's just temporary as I am trying to finish my studies which I hope I am done with soon!
