This is something I have been quietly developing over the past couple weeks. It is not something anyone has really requested or wantd -- so, first I need to say that this development is intended for our use only. We are building a simple CMS / Content Management System module that fits our needs.

What do I mean by this? We're looking to consolidate resources (skins / codes / graphics / templates ) for JFH into a searchable, organized database system rather than being within a forum. It will also be better than searching the support forum for known solutions, and ranked by a simple "likes" system (no - we are not working on the full like system yet.)

So, all this requires us to build a custom solution and that's what we're doing.

The CMS is located here for now, and will not work on any other forum except this one. Please be advised that there is not much to do here at this time, but you can browse and get an idea of what we're doing.

I have decided to build out this system while catering to our needs, to also abstract it as much as possible. If there is great interest from the JFH admin community in seeing something like this available as a feature on your boards, I will build out an admin panel for it with additional options.

Right now there are zero plans to do so, as I have no idea how much interest there would possibly be in something like this which may only work for a small subset of communities.

This thread will serve as the development journal for this feature and for general talk / discussion about it. I plan to get this done very quickly as what I have already was completed in a couple week's time.

Forum owners are now able to apply either their monthly or yearly subscriptions to up to 5 other forums at the same time with no extra charge! This is great for running multiple live forums and development test boards without having to pay for a new subscription for each one.

We have also increased avatar size upload limits from 256KB to 1024KB (1MB) for premium users, and to 512KB for free users!

Our premium benefits page has been updated to reflect these changes.

It has been almost 3 years since we launched Premium service and every year we strive to improve it and increase benefits for all. We thank you greatly for all of the continued support.

This summer 2017 (for our US & North America users) stay inside, beat the heat, and create a new forum!

Best regards,
John & the JFH Team

Timeline (all times in EDT)
  • March 16, 2017 at 6:20AM we experienced a service interruption.
  • March 16, 2017 at 8:48 AM we became aware of the downtime
  • March 16, 2017 at 8:50 AM we identified the problem as an issue with our network server at Level3 Communications and not the server with the board data.
  • March 16, 2017 at 9:04 AM we were in contact over the phone with Level3 and techs were already working on the issue to find the root cause
  • March 16, 2017 at 11:00 AM a data-center based outage was confirmed; our systems were not specifically problematic in any way.
  • March 16, 2017 at 11:52 AM Service was restored.
  • March 16, 2017 at 12:11 PM we received notice that "there was an outage in the LA datacenter and a failed PDU had to be replaced. [...] and should be back to normal now."
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank for your patience. We also apologize for the slightly delayed response; and will look into why our notifications did not fire more than once for this incident.

We will be monitoring the server closely throughout the day to ensure it is OK. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

HTTPS Encrypted BrowsingPlease let me know if you have any questions/comments after reading the wiki (and I know there will be questions).

Jcink Forum Hosting is now offering HTTPS "BETA" to all free and premium users via the * subdomain.

If you use HTTPS, this means all traffic between your browser and the server will be encrypted and cannot be monitored by a 3rd party. While this is not so important for browsing from your home internet connection, it is essential to be secure if you are using public wifi or a similar public internet connection.

You can start browsing our forums and site by accessing:

A full article on HTTPS has been posted here:

HTTPS is a "BETA" feature within our service and is under development.

Comments, questions, and development news regarding this feature will be posted in our dev forum topic here:

Thank your for your patience and we're looking forward to serving you with HTTPS
