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

      No matter if you have development works already in progress or still haven’t get your project going, because to take advantage of our unique promotion, you need to follow only two simple footsteps.
      First, get in touch with our team to let us know you are interested in obtaining the shapely 15% price cut, and secondly, finalize the discounted invoice before the end of December.
      Once you have done that, your project will be additionally granted a VIP spot on our implementation queue.

      1. OpenStack VPS For WHMCS 1.7.0 
      There are at least several essential improvements you may expect from our latest release, and none of them has made it on this list without a good reason. 
      For example, thanks to the neatly secured integration with OpenStack Rocky, you may rest assured that your clients will be always supplied with virtual server solutions meeting the most recent technological standards. 
      The "Scheduled Backups" functionality, in turn, allows your audience to create backups of their servers not only manually, but now also in a fully automated manner, through specifying desired backup intervals. And last but not least, whenever needed, you will be empowered to freely edit and apply custom rules for VPS security groups assigned to virtual machines using a configuration file.   
      Interested to know what further perks are to be derived from this spanking new update? The module’s official changelog is open for investigation!
       
      2. EasyDCIM v1.5.3 Released 
      Being in charge of multiple independent data center locations is a tough challenge, but why give yourself even more job when you have the aid of such go-ahead tools like EasyDCIM at your close disposal? 
      Upon the latest 1.5.3 update, you can make use of remote applications that are to be installed on your owned locations, and assign various tasks between those facilities from a single pane of glass – your EasyDCIM. Launching an operating system on a server placed on the other side of the world, and in a completely different network? Nothing easier. 
      Gain a complete picture of all transformations on the EasyDCIM release Blog and head over to the official YouTube channel for a series of short tutorial videos as well!
