Have fun with your new FlaskBB Forum!

If you want to have a first look at the new theme (it's not finished yet) switch to the "Aurora" theme here. Currently just the index, category and forum view are designed.

You can also login with the demo user if you want. The password is demo.

I just updated the theme. All the critical parts should be covered now.

Thanks! Glad you like it.

Why should Postgres be an overkill?

I actually prefer postgres over MariaDB/MySQL.

But of course you can use MariaDB as the database engine for FlaskBB and you won't even feel difference.
You just have to adjust the database settings in the config file. (if you do so, could you post the config here so that i can add it to the docs?)

Hope this helps a bit.

the textareafield Seems can only insert image hyperlink, how can i insert a real image file in my computer?

FlaskBB does not support uploading of any files. Use an external image hoster like imgur.com for this.

In the Management view go to the 'Plugins' tab and 'Install' the Portal Plugin. After that you should be able to configure it in the 'Settings' tab :)

FlaskBB is now (and only) accessible via HTTPS.

I finally managed to put a new design on the landing page.

There is still some content missing but I'll gradually add it over the next couple of weeks.
Feel free to help, it is made with lektor and the source is available here.
There is also a new default style for these forums here. It is actually just a clone of the default 'Aurora' theme with a different footer and a additional navigation on top. The source is also available on GitHub.

Any recommendations for a client on Linux/macOS?

I use Weechat as an IRC client on Unix. Quite ok.

I use KDE and recently discovered Konversation which I really like.
