What is BetaZone?
ProBoards BetaZone allows forum administrators to test their existing forums with our new ProBoards v5 forum software. We'll make a copy of your existing forum and upgrade it to ProBoards v5 at a new temporary URL. This v5 version of your forum will allow you to test what v5 has to offer without it affecting your current forum. You can also create new v5 forums from scratch if you want to experiment even more.
When is BetaZone?
BetaZone has started. If you have already signed up then you will receive your invite with a Beta Key. We will be sending keys out in batches. So it may be a while before you recive your key. Once you do you can go to www.proboards.com/betazone to start testing ProBoards v5.
I haven't signed up yet, where can I?
Go to www.proboards.com/betazone and fill out the sign up form.
What does the Beta in BetaZone mean?
Beta means that this isn't the final version of the software. We are still working on bugs and perfecting the software. It also means that things are subject to change. We may need to take BetaZone offline from time to time for updates as well. We ask that you be understanding and patient during these updates.
What do I have to do in the Beta?
Well, we hope that you'll test out the software and enjoy it. However if you do find a bug we hope that you'll report them in our bugs board. You can also use the other Beta boards here in Support for help and assistance with your v5 copy.
Can I save themes and plugins from my BetaZone copy to use on my real forum?
You can export themes and plugins to your computer. After forum is upgraded to v5 you can import them. This will help save you time later on. We've done our best to finalize the themes and plugin sections.
What will happen to threads, messages, etc from my v5 copy?
It's just a temporary copy. Any content you post will be removed when BetaZone ends. Use the forum to test the software itself. Don't make it your new forum.
If you have any other questions about how BetaZone works please ask them below. Thank you!!!
