- Uncomplicated code (No unexplained regex, things are generally written in a pretty straightforward manner)
- Powerful BBCode parser written specifically for Agora (No regex used. Very straightforward to edit.)
- Optional email address confirmation system
- Private messaging system
- Lack of feature bloat (or just an excuse as to this list being short)
- Add boards
- Add more admin tools and improve existing ones
- Overhaul visual design
- Search feature
This is a reference of the currently implemented bbcode tags. This list should be incorporated into a help menu within Agora itself at some point.
