      For those interested in the tech, here’s what’s behind these forums (besides the long hours, blood, sweat and tears…):

      Based on the amazing success of marinebio.org, we chose the following…

      • The platform is the latest WordPress
      • The custom theme used is based on the Olympus social network purchased via Envato…
      • The forums are based on bbPress with BuddyPress features and profiles customized using the Youzer/myCRED plugins…
      • The rtMedia plugin handles much of the media with the Imagify plugin smartly compressing images so they look best and load the fastest.
      • Our Events calendar is made by Modern Tribe, Inc.
      • WP Rocket is our preferred caching plugin, Akismet Anti-Spam and Wordfence handles security along with our server firewall, etc.
      • We use UpDraft Plus, Wp-DBManager and WP-Sweep to backup and optimize the databases…
      • The server is a Dedicated Private Server hosted by Hostgator running Apache on Linux…
      • SEO (search engine optimization) is handled by SEOPress and testing has been done manually with the help of volunteers mainly in the latest browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge…) and on a few tablets and phones…

      If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know!
