Hi Ben! May I ask when this was started? I mean this forem.dev website was launched? (I think I'm too late to join 😅)

Several months ago, but we’ve also been fairly heads down so only now beginning to be as active as we want to be.

Hey Ben - looking for help with installing Forem - any suggestions?

As far as options for self-hosting Forems, I personally like DigitalOcean, but all of these will be fine.

If you run into any problems getting set up, come back here and make a post seeking help.

And then once you get up and running, poke around admin, look to get properly configured, and then again, come back here if you want more help.

If you get stuck anywhere please don't hesitate to come back to forem.dev or reach out to hello@forem.com for our help! Once you're fully up and running it will all be about keeping up with community moderation and making it the best Forem you can.

… I see you’re getting up and running on Forem Cloud, which is definitely the way to go. Good luck getting up and running, definitely come back to ask for feedback and ideas here. 😅

Hey There! I've been looking for an excellent community platform after using a bunch of others - super excited about forem - looks like a lot of thought went into it and how to bring people together.

Looking forward to participating meaningfully!

Sure:

  • dev.to - is a community for developers. It's powered by Forem(it's like WordPress but for communities).
  • forem.dev - is basically about that Forem engine - updates, feature announcements, ideas discussions etc.

Hello! I've been working on a handsfree visual coding platform to help people who can't use a computer at all become integrated into Tech (of which these people are typically 100% excluded from)

I joined here because the Dev.to community inspires me, and I'd like to try and kickstart a similar community for people who code with assistive tech (not necessarily with just my tool). Also, I'd like to get involved with any of the accessibility features of forem both to learn and contribute!

Resurrecting this thread to say "Hola, I'm Ella from the Forem Team 👋"

Some of y'all will know me from other Forems (my "big intro" is on DEV), but for those who don't, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance and I hope that we'll get to know each other better in the near future!

Hey, Ritu from DevGraph 👋

Excited to be part of forem.dev. I'm impressed with dev.to community, options to express ourselves and the quality of content available for our disposal.

Want to be part of forem too and add value to the users here and want to add value to myself as well. Thanks :)
