JaxBoards development on GithubLately I've been working on JaxBoards on Github. My goal is to get something you can install on your own system easily if you want to. There's a few other tweaks and updates that need to be made alongside that.

Check it out Here.

What I'm planning on working on is in the issues, here's a direct link to that.

This is mainly for research and fun (and maybe at some point doing updates to the service?); even with an installer and some updates I wouldn't exactly recommend you run Jaxboards on your own these days. (Although in my honest opinion, from a user-perspective I still think it's better than most other free options out there today.)
Spam Issues + InactivityAs this project is no longer being developed, the only real activity we've been getting here on the support forum has been from spambots registering. Because of this I set the registration to admin-validation and clear it every now and then. I don't plan on actually sorting through the list, just banning IPs that come up... If you need to register for whatever reason or your IP was banned mistakenly, drop me an email at and I'll get you through the queue.

I've also closed down the community section of this site, since it hasn't been used much, if at all, since 2011. The support sections will remain open for those who need support, although I can't guarantee speedy support since I don't check this place too often (something around once a week). If you need support urgently post it on the forum AND drop me an email at and I'll try to resolve your issue.

I have talked to Sean and as long as people are using JaxBoards, the service will stay up. So don't worry about things going down or anything like that. I'll definitely forward any major issues to Sean if there are any.
permission inheritence systemSMF has it and it really is the best way to deal with permissions in my opinion

check it out if you get the chance
JaxBoards youtube tag really is the best aroundnothing more annoying than being in a thread on another forum software with 10000 videos all loading killing your computer, the way JaxBoards handles this is perfect
bgcolor bbcode weird editing errorYou can use the code normally, and it'll save, but if you go back and edit it, it'll turn into a regular color tag. This isn't a super vital issue as the bbcode is rarely ever used and you can just fix it each time you edit, but it is pretty annoying.
Memberlist searchI just discovered that there isn't actually anything like this, haha. It's not too necessary for smaller boards, but even for something like the support board it's incredibly useful.
