Forum Software?

#1

What software is this forum using? Is it licensed, or something that was built in-house? Just curious, and I haven’t run into anything that said one way or another since I’ve been using it.

Edit: I see the TOS references Wordpress, but I didn’t think they did forum specific stuff…

It’s referred to as “Discourse” in this thread

As Scotty said, Discourse. And yes, it’s licensed.
A few other places use it, Gearbox was my first encounter with it.

Once you get used to it, it’s really easy to get around and navigate.

One of the guys behind it is Jeff Atwood (CodingHorror) who run Stackoverflow. Generally, it seems like it’s a great forum system made by great people :slight_smile:

It seems pretty fluid once you get used to it. And it looks great on mobile.

Nice. That went completely over my head, even though I remember seeing that when it was posted.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

I agree, I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I really like it now. Nice and clean, and as you say very mobile friendly.

I have to say, when it was first proposed we move to this, I was quite against it.

But got used to it, and it’s a nice improvement over the old stuff we used to use.

Yeah. I agree. While I kinda miss the old forum since I’m used to it, this is much more optimized for modern devices.
