Farewell

Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

A new frontpage is now available

Hi everyone,
quick post to announce that a new frontpage is now available PARTY POPPER You probably have already experienced it as it dominates the scene.

I have had this showcase-like concept in mind for a while and today I've had a day off to polish it and finish it off. Information is crystal clear and neater than the prior version; the arrangement is minimal but informative enough to me. I am quite satisfied with the final result, and I hope you are too: if you want to leave a feedback, post a reply under this thread! More items for registered users will be added when I will have more time to dedicate the theming part of the site.

Whisper has been moved into the Free plugins and themes zone; the testing zone has been deleted, I am still uncertain if I will provide another one as the whole site now serves as a live testing for most of available plugins.

The development zone will be filled with to-do projects and the order will reflect the actual priority. Plugins prices, if applicable, will be discussed in the relevant threads with each plugin's applicant.

As a side note, dark mode has been enabled by default for everyone, guests included. You can switch back anytime to day mode from the footer or the top right quick menu if you are registered.

The theme is private and specifically designed for MyBBoost. It’s not available to the public and never will due to its intrinsic complexity.

thanks for information. So do you have any similar themes to recommend?
