You Can Now Resize Your Forum Header!


Edited: Mar 11, 2018

Hi everyone,

So after we gave you the option to remove the forum header, we now allow you to resize it!


Here's how:

  1. Go to the editor

  2. Go to your forum page

  3. Open the forum settings

  4. Go to Layout tab

  5. Change the 'Header Height' - choose between 100px to 500px


Enjoy - and share with us your forums with the new header size :)

OMG. Create a feature that we can actually get excited about, like verified members or members being able to manually display if their online or not.

We are working on more features, stay tuned

Definitely would like to see @ the top part of the forum page a recent post or latest posting

window along with the latest pictures from those postings as they get posted.

This way everyone can see at a glance the latest happenings when they log in.

thank u.

Can you add this function to Category headers as well?


Here's my site for an example. I like that I have control over main forum header but the category headers are just much larger than I want them to be. Having same control would be great! Thank you!

Hi tonycolapietro,

This change also make the category header resizable - do you want different header size in main page and category page or I miss understood you?

Hi Rafi, yes, once you click into the category the header size is adjustable and follows the main forum header settings. ...the issue is Categories under Main Forum tab don't seem to have any way to adjust their size. I'll attach samples from my site. (


The overall Header looks good and I have control over that. In the photo directly below my problem is that I can't find a way to adjust the size of each Category Title Graphic. I would like to have the ability to reduce these to much smaller sizes if possible so they don't tak up so much screen real estate.




Once in the selected Category I'm fine with layout and the thinner top category header looks nice.


New Posts
  • We just released a feature that allows you to choose how many posts a new user can publish in their first week . The options are 1, 5, or 10 posts per day. Or, you can choose to have “no limit”. The default is 10, but you can change it via Settings. It’s a useful way to combat spam in the forum. At the moment, this only affects new post creation. Comments, replies and likes have no limits. As always, let us know what you think!
  • As you might have heard badges were released with a BLAST. Today badges got even better. We started showing badges next to avatars on posts, comments and replies! This makes badges even more powerful when differentiating the members of your community that deserve recognition! Badges are another way to motivate and engage your community to continue interacting with your forum. They also make your forum look more exciting. You can award members for being the best or doing the most of something, or use them to give thanks and signal a member's positive participation in a community. Forum Admins can assign badges to members in 2 ways: 1. From your Dashboard > Customer Management > Site Members 2. From your Live Site > Member Profile > Three dots on a member > Assign Badges For other related questions head to: Don’t wait. Let a forum member know that their involvement in your forum is appreciated by sharing a status symbol - give them a badge!
  • Incredibly excited about file upload feature, because this feature makes your posts, comments and replies limitless in terms of content. You can add anything you want to the post! .rar, .zip, .pdf, .mp3, .avi, .mov, .doc, .xls, .ppt, you name it! Even images that are already possible to add, can be added as a file upload so it doesn’t lose even a bit of quality. We’re sure this will unlock all kinds of new interactions on the forum and that’s what is most important! Let us know how you’re planning to use file upload feature.
