Version ModeDonor Beta


This release contains a long awaited feature: pretty HTML emails.

Also the forum received some Search Engine Optimizations and CKEditor bug fixes & some usability changes.

Important highlights from this release

  • We finally have pretty HTML emails in our nice blue design
    • These emails will randomly mix with the old ones, because mail sending is mostly from the non-beta site, which doesn't have them YET.
    • We changed our sending email from to for our new emails!
  • Fixed some pretty annoying bugs with SEO redirect and Notifications (Alerts) popup (thumbs up)
  • Boards, Topics, Urls which do not exists will show a proper error page now!
  • The beta site should have a GREEN LOCK now as well (smile)
  • CKEditor improvements and fixes were made. It's considered ready for Open Beta now!

  • Search Engine Optimizations were made - you will notice this when you link a forum url in Discord, Skype, Twitter, etc. (preview image, preview text, ...)
  • Development / Staff changes:
    • Moderators can now faster hide unwanted posts in the Moderation Center
    • Testing Tool for html emails and work on E2E tests for CKEditor and such
