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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

GitHub-like issues have arrived!

5 Aug 2020
A new feature is now available for MyBBoost users: threads in certain forums are now treated as "issues", and OPs can now mark replies as "best answer" or the whole thread as solved.

The functionality is quite basic, but functional. Threads, now called "issues", are sorted into "solved" and "open" categories. You can find the links in the table headers on each forum page. Important threads, such as release threads or documentations, are "pinned" and displayed as stylish cards above anything else, and on each page. The final result is displayed below. Live demo.

OPs will find a check icon next to each post, which they can click to automatically mark the answer as "best" and the whole issue as "solved". OPs can also mark the thread as solved without selecting a best answer, by clicking on the button next to the quick reply form.

When an answer is marked as "best", it will be displayed immediately below the first post; this is particularly useful for those struggling to find the solution in longer threads. Additionally, a flag below the thread title shows that the issue is marked as solved.

This website update also brings the latest UIKit version with little, unnoticeable bugfixes and improvements, other than a new and way cooler sorting menu for forums.
