We have updated our gallery system and added a new feature called posting templates
Gallery updates!Main highlights: NEW image editor allows Crop, Draw, Filter, Transform images and much more!. New category level setting to control if you want the thumbnail images to be either, thumbnail, medium sized or full sized images. Bug fixes, performance and other general improvements.
Posting TemplatesThis works just for the standard editor and not in WYSIWYG mode.
This can be enabled under Admin -> Features and Options -> Posting Templates.

You can select which membergroups can use posting templates and what boards they can use it on as well.
If they have permission to make posting templates, they can create them under their profile. Admin's have the option to make a global template that any member can use when creating a new post.

« on: April 14, 2020, 10:17:37 pm »
SMFNew is proud to annouce some new features! We now support Telegram, Zapier, API Forum Integrations

These are found in your Admin under "Forum Integrations"

Telegram - Gives you the option to auto post new topics, posts, and registrations to your Telegram bot

Zapier is a workflow automation system  Which allows you to integrate with 2000+ apps such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, Slack, Mailchimp.
In order to use this system requires a paid plan from Zapier since this system uses the Zapier's Webhook app. They do offer a 14 day trial to see if it will work for your needs.

Made a couple quick videos to give you some basic examples of things can be done.
Register multiple members using a google spreading using a Zapier Webhook

Get Data from Forum using Zapier Webhook Retrieve Poll then insert into a google spreadsheet

These end points can also be used as API that returns JSON allowing you to script out actions/requests.

The package manager is not included here for security reasons since it could lead to code execution.
We do have major mods that we have created installed such as gallery pro, downloads etc on the platform.

That is not something you need to do with our service. It is already setup.

The default limit for attachment space I believe is 25mb but can be upgraded.

Attachments are not backed up using the SMF feature to backup the database. I also don't recommend using that feature for large forums as sometimes the database dump is not complete.
You would need to send over the attachments folder as well.

To send the database email to or you can pm me a link to it. Please zip up the file.

Also signup for a forum on and send me your forum url.

1. I have been running for over 10 years. I would probably migrate you to that SMF based platform as it has all the features.
20 years is a long time to say, it depends on how the internet changes. I can say for sure we will be around at least 5 to 10 years more.
2.Yes, we just need the database dump. No cost.  No limit on size of database. There are limits on attachment space.
3. One time fee for database export of $50 includes attachments and other site files.
