• Due to an extraordinary current load of development for our small team, and due to the current COVID-19 situation, support and inquiry channels may be delayed. Please allow up to 48 hours for response. We THANK YOU for your patience!
  • Update: Support inquiries are still behind, but are being caught up rapidly while all products are receiving new updates. Thank you for your patience during this period of limited staffing. If you need priority for an issue, it's recommended to fill out a Support Ticket rather than use the forums. However all inquiries via any channel at this website will be addressed as soon as possible.

This is a significant update spanning several Xenforo versions worth of changes, bugfixes & feature improvements.

Highlights include the new Collapsible Forum Categories and Discussion Grid - giving forum visitors greater UI experience. The featured and logo icon carousels also provide new settings, such as the ability to randomize slides and choose the starting slide order.
