    @Toby, I am so grateful that you made the decision to open source this amazing creation. EsoTalk (I guess I should call it Flarum ;) ) is a beautiful platform which I cannot wait to pull down and tinker with. It was a win-win situation for everyone.

    And hey, if you are still looking to make some cash from this creation you could offer a hosting service of some sort. That's what the guys over at NodeBB and Discourse have done--their code is open-source but they have a hosting service for clients.

    In closing, thanks again sir. This has made my day brighter!!

    Not sure if that was an inside joke, but a post with no context is considered spam. Careful there!

    And @anjaly there is no esoTalk plugin for Wordpress yet--but if you have some extra space on your server you could install the esoTalk platform and provide a link from Wordpress to the forum.

    Hmm..Not sure what I am doing wrong as I was able to install this forum platform over a month ago.

    I have download the zipped files from esotalk/download, extracted the folders and uploaded to my VPS, chmod the proper directories, and installed through the web interface.

    But when I click the "Install My Forum" button, it brings me to a 404 Page not Found webpage. The installation process did not create forum/admin, forum/conversation, or none of that! But when I visit the base url (http://forum), it looks correct. I just cannot click on links without getting a 404 Page not Found message.

    These are the things I have checked:

    1. Permissions on MySQL
    2. Directory Permissions
    3. Apache URL rewrites (none are interfering)
    4. PHP mods

    Everything looks fine. Has anyone seen this error before?

    Also @mondododo be sure you are not including the * in [img][/im*g]

    This is what happens when you remove the *

    @AlexTuesday, here are a few things to try (as I could not recreate your problem in my browser):

    • Confirm that Javascript is enabled in your Safari browser.
    • Recreate the same scenario in Firefox (Safari uses a special -webkit- framework, that could be over-writing some default)

    And, if you are feeling very adventurous, try viewing your browser console and posting what the errors are. (Navigating the Safari Web Inspector )

    I know it's, like, two years later but I felt this question deserved a better answer. There are those of you out there who have no idea about hosting a forum and could become valuable additions to the internet! This is for you.

    (While a full tutorial on setting up a personal host is beyond the scope of this post, here are a few pointers..)


    1. Download WAMP

    * Choose the download with PHP 5.4.*


    2. Install WAMP

    • Run the installer you downloaded above
    • Once finished, check that WAMP is running by opening a browser and typing "localhost" into the URL bar. If the WAMP info page shows, it is installed correctly.


    3. Install esoTalk

    • Download the esoTalk package.
    • Unzip the file and rename the unzipped folder to "eso".
    • Move the "eso" folder to C:/wamp/www/.
    • In your browser, visit "localhost/eso".
    • Follow the instructions on screen.

    If you need any other help with installing esoTalk on your localhost, please ask. :)

    I'll leave you with some helpful links:
