Hi all,

Please can you leave any requests below that you would like us to include on the Official Documentation? We will try to cover as many requests as possible.

These topics would be really good if they have in-depth guides:
- Group Promotions
- Thread Prefixes
- Spam Prevention official guide

Most of the above topics are often missed by new MyBB forum administrators.

  • For plugin developers:
    • Recommended implementation / Best-practice: for example don't cache volatile variables or implement a feasible cache reloading mechanism; don't break program workflows; use internal data handlers for security / compatible concerns; etc.
  • For theme developers:

Some of these features already have settings to turn them off, so I doubt your request will be delivered completely.
