Developed By ChrisTERiS

Compatible with WHMCS v8.1

Important Notice:

whmcsBB renamed to WHMUp Foro with changes to License and many improvements. More information at the bottom of the post.

Do you think that a Forum module can offers only basic forum features. Think again. whmcsBB, my flagship module, moves the water. Has (or should have in upcoming updates), most of the features that big names like vBulletin, xenForo, IPB have. From now on you don't need a forum bridge. whmcsBB is your best choice to start a community in your WHMCS website.

Most important features:

Forums

  • Which Usergroup(s) can post
  • Which Usergroup(s) can read (Private Forums)
  • Use of Prefixes with option to set prefix mandatory. Also you can set which usegroup can use each one. As a simple example in a bug report a Member can select "Reported" but not "Confirmed" a choice that a Moderator can use. *Forum Image

Threads

  • Thread Rating
  • Post Likes
  • Sticky / Unstick Threads
  • Close / Open Thread
  • Visible / Hidden Thread

Usergoups Permissions (Unlimited Usergroups)

  • Can View
  • Can Post
  • Can Edit
  • Edit time limit
  • Can Reply
  • Can Quote
  • Can Delete
  • Delete time limit
  • Can Rate
  • Can have Signature

Others

  • Report Posts
  • Report Users
  • Block Users
  • Ban Users (Currently permanently)
  • Advanced Search (see screenshot)
  • Quick
  • Move Threads from Forum to Forum
  • Unlimited depth of Forums
  • Online Users
  • Nice modal User profile
  • Social Share
  • Subscribe to Forum
  • Subscribe to Thread
  • Follow User

Small but very useful features are:

  • Trusted Members: I've split the standard "Members" usegroup that exists in all forums in 2 groups:
    • Members
    • Trusted Members This will helps you to give more permissions to you old members.
  • In General Settings there are 2 options which are working in conjuction each other and determine when a Member can be trust:
    • After xxx days of his registration date
    • After xxx posts
  • Some Anti-spam features: as an additional anti-spam control, I'm putting in moderation (bypassing usergroup permissions) posts that:
    • The elapsed time between entering the form and submitting the form is very short
    • The elapsed time between 2 posts is very short. But in this case only the new post is going under moderation.

Remarks

  • ver. 1.0.0 developed and tested with: PHP 5.6.3, WHMCS 7.2.2, WHMC 7.3.x and MySQL version 5.6.35
  • Compatible with PHP 7

New Features

  • Option to select the traditional Forum listing interface
  • Email notifications to Admin (or any email address) for New Thread, Replies, Quotes

WHMUp Foro Extra Features

  • Fully compatibility with whmcsBB
  • Compatible with WHMCS ver. 8.1 using the Six template or any other theme build with Bootstrap 3. In the next release (within January 2021), should be support for Bootstrap 4. This will be done by releasing 2 templates set, one for Six theme and the other for Twenty-One Theme.
  • A new usergroup "Clients" to separate ACTIVE clients from normal members, so you can give them special permissions (eg access to specific forums).
  • Grid display for Thread list, but you can set to use the old style.
  • New design for Showthread page, more elegant, mostly to save space for short replies.
  • Previous - Next Thread below the first post in thread page.
  • New Profile Modal
  • User Menu moved to a slide panel, to free up space from sidebar
  • Extra page for Member profile. Should be a link to Profile Modal to redirect viewers to member profile page
  • Activity Stream working like in other Forums
  • Memberlist. Can be turn Off. Even on On setting you can configure which usergroups can view this list.
  • Upgrade Font Awesome to ver. 5.7

I am really happy with the forum addon, buy I am even happier with the help I received from the developer, Chris.

He went beyond any other support/developer I've ever worked with and helped me with some extra features I needed. Thank you very much!

One should not rely on this module. The developer was unreachable for a long time, you can read about it in the WHMCS Community Forum. Then he announced that he is no longer develops but he still wants to sell modules. The future of the modules is questionable.

Unreachable?? Must be a joke. Do you've any ticket nbr to provide? Unless if "reachable" for you are only those person who waste their time playing in Facebook. I'm professional, and the only valid way to contact me for any reason is the Ticketing support system. .... As for the future... There are at least 10 coders behind me waiting to continue it. The fact that at some point I'll stop working, has nothing to do with the scripts that I've developed. .......... And to talk straight..... Became very boring to read comments from "well known" people around here, who instead to try to improve their mods, the try to underestimate the value of other mods. My 2c as you use to say in USA.

Fantastic forum module! It’s responsive, and the individual forum photos make for a very attractive layout of your forums. The new setup question I asked was answered very promptly. There is no downside here. I’m looking forward to using the developer’s blog module as well.

There was only one bug which fixed at once. For all others, there were mistaken actions from your side and wrong usergroup permissions.

We tried many bridges into other forums and they simply were no good, we only found one other forum script that integrated with WHMCS and that was pretty poor.... Then we found WHMCSBB ... Simple to install, works with our theme.... A few little tweaks were needed to which the developer added straight away, support was very quick.

By far the best integrated forum we have seen to date for WHMCS.

v2.0.0 Released January 1st, 2021

Latest Version


WHMUp Foro License change

For 4 full years, I was releasing my modules with 100% visible source code and without using any license change. I was trusting people. I was expecting that some people will make multiple installation to other domains that they own, but ok, this is something that I can understand and accept. But what was my experience?

  1. People to buy them, download them, and in less than an hour of their order to chargeback the payment. In a time frame that it was impossible even to install, configure and test it.
  2. People to sell my modules as stand-alone products, or mostly as part of other services. eg part of a WHMCS theme. Especially for my Legal Agreements module, I found at least 2 theme at Themeforest, offering this module as part of their theme. They didn't even spent some time to hide themselves by modifying a bit the appearance or even use different filename. After all, starting from 1st January 2021, and as a way to avoid unauthorized use of WHMUp Foro, the code should be encoded just like the majority of WHMCS modules and WHMCS itself. whmcsBB will continue to be active with old license terms but it will move to Legacy Modules, and will continue getting only Bug fixes, but no any feature upgrade

WHMUp Foro Extra Features

  • Fully compatibility with whmcsBB
  • Compatible with WHMCS ver. 8.1 using the Six template or any other theme build with Bootstrap 3. In the next release (withing January 2021), should be support for Bootstrap 4. This will be done by releasing 2 templates set, one for Six theme and the other for Twenty-One Theme.
  • A new usergroup "Clients" to separate ACTIVE clients from normal members, so you can give them special permissions (eg access to specific forums).
  • Grid display for Thread list, but you can set to use the old style.
  • New design for Showthread page, more elegant, mostly to save space for short replies.
  • Previous - Next Thread below the first post in thread page.
  • New Profile Modal
  • User Menu moved to a slide panel, to free up space from sidebar
  • Extra page for Member profile. Should be a link to Profile Modal to redirect viewers to member profile page
  • Activity Stream working like in other Forums
  • Memberlist. Can be turn Off. Even on On setting you can configure which usergroups can view this list.
  • Upgrade Font Awesome to ver. 5.7
