I am looking into buying a license for UBB.threads.

Is this forum software still actively being developed?

Also, is there any type of blog add-on (or build in) that works with UBB?

Thanks!! smile

There was a lull in past years for updates.
But not any more
Currently they are getting ready to release I believe UBB 8.

No there is not a plugin to integrate a blog with UBB.
But there are ways to circumvent some of it.

Upgrades within UBB.threads utilize the built in upgrade utility for simple upgrades; when a site goes years without updates (many versions to pass) there will be times that you'll need to do an incremental update to "catch up", these are relatively rare but do occur (such as adding the Global Moderators feature in v7.3) and are as easy as upgrading to the "stopgap" version before upgrading to the latest build.

You can find a list of developer notes with each version and the release date on the wiki at UBBWiki (UBB.threads Changelog Index) or in the Changelog Discussions announcements forum.

There are numerous modifications available at UBBDev (the home of the team contracted for development of the UBB.threads product) and I offer several premium/paid modifications and themes at VNC Web Services.

Any updates on when Version 8 might be expected? I'd love to upgrade, but want to wait until it is closer in time.

I left UBB a while back but am looking at buying it again and coming back. I still LOVE the look of UBB.threads.

Is the forum software still being actively developed to date?

FYI,
Your join date here is April 2022.
If that is your purchase date.
Then you still have access to all the versions current and past till the purchase anniversary for no additional cost.
After your anniversary.
You only will have access to versions released on or prior to that date.

So if I were you I would download the most current version you have access to now.
If version 8 releases before your support expires you can download it.

All at no extra cost.

My message from April still stands; development was on a brief hiatus while we waited for core 3rd party assets to be supported by PHP8. Now that all of those assets are compatible we're doing testing on the latest PHP builds.
