Today the forum was completely removed and replaced with a full rewrite of the Flarum forum software (it is now at beta 10, moved to Illuminate (Laravel) 5.7).
Changes you might note are:
- Redesigned error and Reset Password pages
- Drag and drop avatar upload
- Search has received a makeover. Discussion titles are now searched and results are ranked much more reliably.
- Mark discussions read right in your notifications, no need to visit the discussion again.
- The markdown toolbar now has an image 🖼️ insertion button
- Better emoji support with Twemoji instead of Emoji One 🦾 🪂 🦦
- You can now tab out of the post composer (it no longer inserts a TAB of 4 spaces instead).
- Tags can now have an icon.
- Option to add polls
- Possibility to merge & split topics/posts
- A few more spam prevention tools, added is a google recaptcha
- Warnings for necrobumping posts older than 2 months
