@adamgreenough Great looking site. How did you make a script that can automatically generate social media image like that? Can you make add-on out of it?
Thanks! It’s using PHP GD. I’m not sure how easy it would be to make an add-on due to the amount of customisation needed. Happy to collab with any experienced add-on makers or post some more details if there’s some demand!

I would definitely recommend putting a guide on your forums on how to do this. It's very useful and I would imagine a lot of users would be interested. A good way to drive traffic to your forum too. Everyone loves a bit a free useful guide :)

A modest round of style and feature improvements launched today. Much preferring these bolder colours and looking forward to seeing how I can leverage new referral functionality for an upcoming competition.
 
Still slowly growing! Quite a slow start to the new year but hoping to inject some cash in to advertising in coming weeks. Up to 600 threads/4000 messages. Made a few design changes also to make things a bit smoother for onboarding new users.

and the next step is to share it with the community :D
I'd imagine that you would use a "page" node to create a custom landing page and then include the "widget_forum_statistics" template which can be altered with css to change the look on that page. Not sure if this is the proper way but seems legit.
 
Launched 2 new features today:

I have collected some exclusive discounts (and still going!) from companies who are happy to create me a webwide coupon and sharing this with my members as a thank you for signing up. Member perks page for logged in users here: https://webwide.io/pages/perks/?ref=1

I also launched a "Refer a friend, we'll plant a tree" referral incentive program pledging to contribute 200 tree plantings via Offset Earth for the next 200 referrals.


If you're not a member yet and you sign-up from either of the above 2 links and make at least 5 posts you'll likely be the first to earn a tree.
 
Ditched the TH node icons plugin today and created a SVG sprite and a little custom code for more personalised icons:

I am enjoying the look! Just debating whether to grey them out when the forums not in its unread state.
 
Given the layout a bit of a refresh and added a few new styles, I am finding the glowing unicorn one rather fun. 🦄
