Hi Everyone,

The WHMCS Forums were launched over 12 years ago and in that time have seen a number of iterations and updates.

Today, we’re excited to announce that we're getting ready to introduce the next incarnation of the WHMCS Community and with it, a brand-new look and feel, along with a whole host of new features and functionality - starting with in-line post reactions & a new reputation structure as well as a new question & answer format for certain forum categories.

Preparations are already well underway to migrate from the current forums to our new Community powered by the Invision Community Suite. The current community is home to a wealth of knowledge and information and we’ll be migrating all existing threads and posts as well as user accounts and private messages to the new WHMCS Community to ensure that none of this is lost.

I’m personally very excited about the opportunities our new platform unlocks. Over the coming months, we’ll be rolling out a range of new features and functionality in our community, taking inspiration from the responses we received earlier in the year about how we can improve your experience.

Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks as we move nearer to the switch over, in the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come.

The team and I are excited to bring our new community to you in September, and I will be posting more information on the changes in future posts.

Thanks for the heads up, Chris, and may I say "at least it's not Xenforo". ;)

XenForo was considered for a while, I tested a number of solutions but like what IP offers :)

Good decision. In the past, I would have gone with XenForo. But if you actually read my previous topic about Invision, I'm impressed how good it is today. The user experience is just wonderful (from using it on other sites forums) and if I had to choose a forum software today, it would be Invision for sure.

 

Here is the post in question from May:

I'm very happy to see WHMCS is going this route. It will certainly make me post more as well :)

Xenforo was considered, but it doesnt do everything we need for the next stage of the community, iPC provides a better platform to work from

      1. cPanel Extended For WHMCS 3.7.0

      This week, to our immense delight, another well-known module from our WHMCS set was brought a huge step closer to perfection. The talk is all about cPanel Extended For WHMCS and the numerous improvements that enriched the freshly released 3.7.0 update.

      As of now, you will certainly appreciate being empowered with the possibility to rename your PostgreSQL databases as well as change your users’ passwords when such a need arises.

      But most importantly, the two brand-new sections we implemented into the freshest release will add some super-useful functionalities as well, and these are:
      ”Disk Usage” section - giving you the control over the amount of disk space currently in use. ”Email Deliverability” section - helping you to significantly decrease the number of emails send from your server that later on may be treated as spam messages. Do not take our talk for granted as no amount of words can truly do justice to the sheer ingenuity of all the additions implemented in the cPanel Extended For WHMCS 3.7.0. Therefore, we sincerely recommend to simply give them a trial run and judge for yourself!

      Learn All About cPanel Extended For WHMCS 3.7.0!
