Dear users,

Simple Machines has upgraded our main site ( to SMF 2.1 and along with this we have introduced the global theme for our site, based on SMF 2.1's default theme.  We have spent many hours working on this upgrade including preparing our site functionality to be compatible with SMF 2.1 changes.  We hope you like it as much as we do!

Along with our new main site, we have rolled out our new customize site.  This site is still in beta, but has been significantly improved and offers many new features.  See our customize site announcement for more information

This has also introduced our wiki site to the compatible theme matching SMF 2.1's default theme.  Those who run MediaWiki can download the compatible version of the theme from our GitHub repository as well as our Authentication integration plugin.

Please note that the overall site is not 100% mobile friendly yet at this time. However, SMF 2.1 itself is fully mobile friendly and should operate smoothly while browsing the community forum.

If you encounter any issues with our site (, please use our Site Comments, Issues and Concerns board to raise a report.  Please search this board first to see if your topic was already asked.  We will do our best to address any issues as quickly as possible.

Thank you!

I can see I'm going to have to update my dark theme override for the site. :D

ETA: And I can see some obvious CSS bugs with this new theme already. ;)

You know where to go report them :P

Sorry to be that **** of a person this new update has broken any links I had saved for mods and some mods don't even show up when I search for them.

Couldn't you add a way for users to use the old site for a while they get that used to the new one cause this is pretty much a whole new website and nothing like the old site?

Damn, it's one hell of a jumble. Diabolically awkward to scan. Might be ok on a phone when it all stacks, but is a nightmare on desktop.

Looking very good Smf. Well done guys, congratulations :)


Took me a minute ti figure I wasn't logged in :D I really miss the latest Post and unread posts link on the top. This was very helpful. Maybe I simply didn't find em in a new menu or whatever :D

Looking nice so far. Will take some time to get used to it but always like new looks :)


Appreciate the hard work guys.  :)
