Large Flatboard forums?
T@bef7e829 Tuesday 24th August 2021, 14:41:43

Hi people, I recently discovered Flatboard and it looks great.
I want to start a forum and i'm thinking to use Flatboard as my forum software.

Are there any large forums (many users/many posts) using Flatboard so I can take
a look and be sure that large Flatboard forums are still fast and user friendly?

Thank you Fred ๐Ÿ‘

Still loads pretty fast.

I did also a test on my webspace and when I go to the 'Forums' link (that shows all forums) it will
take much longer (about 9 seconds) according to going to one specific forum with also lots of posts.
I have added more then 180k posts to test.
Could the reason be that I have a small hosting package (1GB RAM) or is this because Flatboard is a
flat file forum?

Can you tell me in what file I need to remove the 'Forums' link at the left top?
All forums are also visible in the side menu so people don't have to use the 'Forums' link and wait
for 9+ seconds, they just can enter a forum with fast load from side menu ๐Ÿ‘

  To remove "Forums" link, go to theme/bootstrap/header.php find and remove line 61 to 63:
            <li class="nav-item">
<a class="nav-link" href="index.php/forum"><i class="fa fa-comments-o" aria-hidden="true"></i> <?php echo $lang['forum'].$lang['plural']?></a>
</li>


Your host is limit for Flatboard with more than 100 000 posts 2GB is better ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Fred

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜€

I've bought the PRO version, lots of nice themes ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
I think i'm going to change 'index.php/forum' to the mainpage url because that
loads a lot faster.

My hosting package is a small cheap one, it's just to test how the script runs.
I will probably never reach 100-thousands of posts so I don't think it will be
a problem ๐Ÿ‘
