Addons for Vanilla Forums

The plugins folder is what this repository is all about. It holds open source addons for Vanilla Forums created and maintained by the Vanilla Forums team. They are available for official download in our searchable directory along with community contributions.

Individual plugins should have their own license and README. Please start issues by prefixing the issue title with the addon name.


To install an addon, all you have to do is put the addon's folder under the plugins directory.

On Vanilla >= 2.4 you also have to remove cache/addon.php for it to be detected.


We use the same Contributors Agreement for this repository as our main Vanilla repo. Requires a account.

Pull requests welcome! For more information, see the Contributing section of the Vanilla repo's README.
