We've recently migrated our forum from PHPBB2 to bbPress today. As with any transition, there will be kinks to work out but we hope this goes smoothly and we don't expect there to be too many problems. Here are some of the new features and caveats of the new forum:
You can now use Markdown to format your posts. Markdown is a simple e-mail like text formatting syntax. Check its webpage for the full rundown. We've also provided a quick guide on a lot of pages for easy formatting.
Post tags. You can now add tags to posts to classify them according to topic, which should make finding other posts along similar lines easier.
Individual posts in response to topics no longer have separate title fields. If you'd like to add a heading to your post, just start your post with a line "# My post title" (the Markdown syntax for a heading) and it will appear like this:
My post title
The rest of the post text...
- As spam protection, the forum prevents users from posting quickly in succession (30 second timeout period). For people who are very active posters we will probably disable this, so if you run into this problem let us know and we can fix it for you.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're running into problems.
