Awesome, congrats! Looks like there's still some more configuration to get ironed out, but this seems like it will be a really great space!

Nothing major, you should create a welcome post. And I noticed that onboarding didn't have a background pic. You may want to just pour over the admin area to see what can be more complete — including maybe more nav links or "pages".

It's still early for us in defining exactly what is necessary and what is nice-to-have.

Overall love the look and idea behind Easy UI.

Hi, finally I am able to setup a Forem instance as well. But, having trouble with the email functionality.

smtp.gmail.com is not working, can we modify in the ruby code anywhere to use an email function like phpmail()?

Can’t straight up modify the ruby code in that way, but maybe open an issue about the problem and we can discuss the proper solution?

SMTP_ADDRESS='smtp.gmail.com'
SMTP_PORT= 25
SMTP_DOMAIN='gmail.com'
SMTP_USER_NAME='emailid@gmail.com'
SMTP_PASSWORD='password'
SMTP_AUTHENTICATION='plain'

I have the above kind of configuration with the actual gmail id and password in the .env file.

The user is signed up with email option, no email was sent to confirm the email address. And tried to reset password by clicking on the forget password option, still no emails are being sent.

Did I configure something incorrectly?

Hey @9comindia Can you please create a new post, tagged with #help to receive help for questions, rather than asking them in the comments on someone else's post?

This helps the Forem team manage help requests as they come in, and ensures that your question and answer can be found by others in the future.

Yay!! Congrats @sidchaudhary04 . It's looking good!

It looks like you have probably already done this but just in case, be sure to check out our wonderful admin docs for any additional configuration you might want to set up.

Hey Jared! Is there anything specific you needed help with? Are you looking for the self-host option or our SaS option for your community?

Ok cool. It is really awesome that you are looking to set up a Forem.
I assume this is for RevGenius community?
As I understand it, having someone on our team set up your Forem instance is why we also have Forem Cloud as an option

For self-host we are definitely here to help if you get stuck, run in to errors, or need more direction.

If you are looking to have someone set up your Forem, I'd suggest talking with @peter about your options.
