Introducing YouTube Tutorials
Hello, Coders! Code Forum is about helping each other, that's why today I'm announcing a new feature that will help YouTube streamers and coders. This feature as you may have already noticed on the homepage is a slider that shows multiple different types of YouTube videos of coding tutorials. Everyone learns in different ways, some learn better by hearing or visual etc, that's why I think displaying YouTube videos will help even more coders learn and understand. With this feature, I hope it will help coders here on Code Forum but also help YouTube streamers by gaining traffic. How can I share my video? Not anyone can just post their video as of right now. You have to send @Master Yoda a message, with your channel and videos you wish...
Hello Coders, You might be wondering why Code Forum was going through a bit of downtime. Right away I want to ensure you we were not hacked nor lost any data. It was just brought to my attention by @Disruptive that our IP was being exposed. I had to shut down Code Forum several times to ensure that all accounts were safe. We made updates to our Email System and have installed a proxy server for our images. And finally we have migrated from Apache to Nginix with offers better performance. However with this move, you may have notice we aren’t using friendly URLs. I am aware and will be working to resolve this as soon as I can. And once again I would like to thank @Disruptive for their help and I would also like to thank you as the...
New changes, features and improvements
Howdy, Coders! Many of you are probably noticing a few of the many changes that we have made to Code Forum. Today, I am happy to announce those changes in this thread! These changes range from Badges all the way to the backend server and future changes coming. Down below I will go through many topics in much more detail, but here's a brief overview of all the changes. Badges, Changes to Site Rules & Guidelines - additional rule added, New posts button, Editor changes, new server, new onboarding features and our coding challenge. Editor Changes Over the last couple of months, we had a problem where many new coders would post raw code within their posts, which made it very hard to read. Rules were added, many warnings were given out...
Hello Coders! I come bearing new gifts! I hope you are all having a wonderful day today, and learning lots! Firstly, just want to apologize for my absence lately. My work schedule is getting busier and working tires me out but that's no excuse for me abandoning my fellow coders. So I'm going to push myself much more to try and improve your experience at Code Forum. And with that, I'm hoping I'll be able to do this by using the community to help myself better to improve my skills in hopes that it may encourage you guys to do the same! With improving your experience at CF, I've made a couple of changes that I believe will help Code Forum stand out. I have changed one of our forum names from introductions to "Hello World"; as I felt...
Hello Coders, I started Code Forum back in October of 2018 - with one goal, to help myself and others learn to code. One year and six months later we are still working towards that goal and have made significant progress. Today, I would like to share some very exciting news; Code Forum has officially reached 400 registered members and with this achievement comes our future plans! Lets go over some of the new changes and future plans. Coding Challenges - have been re-worked. Lets go over those changes.. Topics of coding challenges will now be taken from (https://codeforum.org/threads/code-challenge-pitch-your-idea.935/) at random that were suggested by you. Time is valuable and so that's why we will try to make the challenges quick...
Hello Coders! Code Forum is committed to helping every coder in achieving their goals no matter what level experience they are. With that said, we encourage coders to ask questions! However, we strongly advise that you format the question in such a way that it can be easily understood. Your thread/question should clearly state what you're trying to do and in what language, the problem and what have you tried already (if you found the solution, could you please provide the solution so it can help others with a similar problem). But it all starts with your title, before posting your thread/question to ensure that you have an understandable title. A good, straight to point title. See some examples down below. YES: 1. How do I link an...
We have partnered with CodingHelp
Hello, Code Forum. I am excited to share with you some news with you about me and Code Forum. I will briefly go over my current situation, our recent achievement and our new partnership! My current situation With the ongoing global crisis, and just like many others my job is classified as an essential service. I used to work 10-hour shifts but have recently accepted a promotion that requires me to work 12 hours shifts. Unfortunately, this does not leave a lot of time for Code Forum. With that being said, I apologize for being around less, but I can ensure that I have my best interests in Code Forum still and I will continue to grow this community. Code Forum is nearing 400 registered coders Woohoo! Code Forum continues to grow every...
Hello Coders! I have recently made the decision to scrap the post comments feature. The reason that I made this decision is because I found that it didn’t look good and affects the flow of the thread posts. No data was lost in this removal. The comments were just inserted into the thread post flow. I hope this change benefits the community. If you have any questions or wish to provide some feedback please feel free to post down below. :)
Moderation Techniques Hello Coders. As mentioned in the past, I would like Code Forum to remain transparent and would like to show you how moderation will be carried out from now on. Code of Conduct has been broken down into three main categories: Inappropriate Content, Inappropriate Behaviour/Language and Inappropriate Advertising / Spam with a few smaller categories. Each category warning will be given based on the rule that was broken. Glossary: Before we begin, please review the glossary to help you better understand what certain abbreviations stand for: AWP - Active Warning Points. IC - Inappropriate Content. IBL - Inappropriate Behaviour/Language. IAS - Inappropriate Advertising / Spam. Please review the table for new...
Hello Coders, We have made recent changes to our privacy policy and site rules and guidelines. With the hopes of protecting all of our privacy. Code Forum is a coding community, and we come here to learn, build and share our work. With that being said, we would like for your information to stay protected and private, and using your personal information does not help us achieve this. We have implemented a few guidelines that will hopefully work. A summary of these guidelines includes the following: using your full name in your username or anywhere on your profile visible to guest or other coders, displaying your age, email, address and other information that can or could be used to identify you on your profile, your posts and anywhere...
Hello Coders! I am pleased to announce that CodeForum.ORG now supports Q&A questions; You can now ask questions by selecting the "Question" option under thread status when creating a new thread. And when members start replying you and other members can vote on the answers. If one has successfully helped you, you can mark as "Best Answer". When you ask a question; Your thread will be given a prefix of "Need help" which means you are looking for help. Let's say if you chose a best answer, then the prefix will be "ANSWERED".
Hello Coders, Today I wanted to bring some light to bumping threads. The reason I am creating this thread is not that bumping is an issue but because it's not ever used and I want to make it clear that it is okay to bump your thread/old threads. Bumping is the act of posting the word 'bump' on your thread in order to bump it back up to the top of the activity list. You will not get any warnings, and such for using a bump, but there are things you should be aware of: Do not use 'bump' within 24 hours of thread creation, and or if the post has not had any activity for 24 hours. Modifying and or changing a topic and posting a reply with information DOES NOT count toward a bump. Use 'bump' when you have nothing further to add but...
Hello Coders! I have a very important and exciting announcement! CodeForum.org now supports "Community Voting" again. I'll quickly go over how the community voting system works. In Front-End and Back-End development forums and some other sections, when creating a new thread you'll notice three tabs 'Discussion' 'Question' and 'Article' if you are looking for a solution to a problem. Then click on the 'Question' tab and ask your question (while using BBCode formatting and following How to ask a good question). As replies come in, other members can vote on the reply that best fits your solution then if it works, you can mark it as a solution by clicking the checkmark. The post will then be displayed as a solution. DO NOT MARK SOMETHING...
Hello Coders! I just wanted to inform you guys that I have added a new forum section called “Other Coding/Programming Languages” to the section Programing. I’m working on redoing forum sections so it fits everyone’s needs in some way. If you have any suggestions please feel free to suggest away :) Cheers!
Tweaks to Forum Stats
Hello Coders! I was a little inspired by my work on a site called Forum Promotion and decided that it would work great on Code Forum. I have re-configured the forum stats to display forum sections on the left-hand side and on right The hub and other things will be displayed on the right. I'm hoping these changes will help members find the content that they want to see. You can change the forum section that you want to view by clicking the "Programming and Coding Languages" and selecting the forum section you want to view. (Just noticed I spelt languages wrong lol) I hope you like these changes! If you have any questions or any suggestions please feel free to reply to this post.
Hello Coders! I just wanted to make a quick announcement regarding our forum layout. It's a small change but a big step forward as there have been some requests to change. https://codeforum.org/threads/how-can-we-improve.433/#post-2911 C Programming was originally created to house three languages; C#, C++ and C. I have now gone ahead and split them up into their own forums. You can find them here! https://codeforum.org/forums/c.83/ for C#! https://codeforum.org/forums/c.84/ for C++! https://codeforum.org/forums/c-programming.43/ for C! I hope you guys will like the newest changes! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reply!
Hello Coders! I have an extraordinary announcement to make! Code Forum has reached 100 registered members; this is a fantastic achievement for our community and is the beginning of Code Forum's bright and prosperous future. With this achievement, we will begin working on community events such as coding challenges and contests etc. Code Forum will begin adjusting priorities to better provide to a community full of coders and developers. What can you expect continuing? With our recent achievement of 100 members, I have previously stated that once we reached 100, Code Forum would look for a moderator. I'm thinking of delaying this just a bit longer; perhaps when Code Forum reaches 110-115 members, but this may change soon. Code Forum...
Hello Coders, I have recently added a new widget to our sidebar called a tag cloud. The tag cloud is a widget that collects all the tags that are being used around the forum and compiling it into one area. The bigger the tag, the bigger the text will be. I'm hoping that this will help drive content discovery and help coders find exactly what they are looking for in one click. I hope you like it, tell me what you think below or in the poll above.
