New Forum Software

New Forum Software

Dear Community,

as you have surely noticed, we have switched to a brand new forum software to make it easier for us and our possible successor team. The SMF Forum was spammed to a degree that we could hardly manage. I was searching for a long time, thought about different options and finally found the possibility to install a forum software via WordPress and to take over the old forum completely.

Your user accounts have been taken over, but it is possible that you will have to get a new password sent to you to log in successfully.

New registrations should also be possible, if I have made the settings correctly.

Now I hope that we will find a successor that will continue and modernize eFiction as an ‘Open Source’ project in the sense of the community, so that we all will still have a lot of fun with the script and can maintain our own archives without being dependent on the giants of the scene like fanfiction.net and archiveofourown.org. 🙂

Stay creative!

Up for adoption

Up for adoption

Well, a few of you might have seen it coming. We have moved on. We have a lot of stuff going on in our lives, so that we don’t have the time nor the energy left, to keep the eFiction Software and it’s website, forum etc. up and running. We will keep the domain(s) up and running until the end of the year, after that it will be gone forever, unless someone is willing to take over from where Sheepy has left version 5 so far.

So eFiction is up for adoption! There will be no more bug fixes or updates of any kind from our site.

Thanks for your understanding!

Artphilia and Sheepy

We are still here!

We are so terribly sorry for the lack of news and updates around the website and eFiction itself. Real life is keeping us pretty busy right now. The forum has become a huge problem concerning spammers and we are looking for a alternative solution to keep up the support of the current stable version. Thanks for your patience with us! We haven’t given up on eFi5, but we know that the progress is very slow at the moment. If there is someone else who loves and knows PHP and everything that comes with coding, let us know! Help would be awesome!

This bundle of skins provide the responsive skins I’ve created over the last couple of years for eFiction. On some of the skins I’ve used Font Awesome and Google Fonts to make them a bit fancy, but I haven’t had the time to update them for a while now. It’s possible that you have to update to the latest Font Awesome release by yourself, since I’m rather busy with real life lately.
Feel free to customise the skins to your liking. But keep in mind; if you mess something up, you have to fix it yourself!

This bundle includes the following skins:
Autumn Days, eMagazine, Enchanted, Epiphany, Frohe Weihnachten, Frosted, Fruity, Night Sky, Responsive, Rohan, Snow White, Sommerbrise, Stardust, Strawberry Cheesecake

These are my oldest skins – my first steps into publishing skins – and they are all static with fixed sizes. Because they are 10 years plus old they are no longer supported, but free for you to use and customise. But keep in mind, if you mess something up, you have to fix it yourself. 😉

The first bundle includes:
3 Column Fullscreen, Adrift in Dreams, Aero, Dark Days, Darkling Woods, Insynch, LCARS, Magic Carpet Ride

Download

The second bundle includes:
Radioactive, Reverie, Reverie II, Simple Clean, Simple Elegance, Strawberry Sundae, Summer Sun, Timeless Elegance

Download

Made by Kali

Although Kali’s website no longer exists, we still have her beautiful skins. Back in 2017 she revamped them for the very last time. They are no longer supported, but you are still able to download and use them.

The first bundle includes the following skins:
2-column, berrygood, dotnet, e-zfiction, fever, go, gothic

Download

The second bundle includes the following skins:
morning after, scribbled too, seabreeze, sensible, superstar, vision, wasabi

Download

Please make sure you always read the ‘read me’ file that is included. Usually you only need to upload the skin into the skins folder at the main directory and that’s it.

Well, where do I begin? November was a bad month for me. On November 1st my mom passed away at age 74. Two weeks later I had my exams nevertheless. You can imagine how hard this month was for me and my family. Revamping the site felt like a therapy. December wasn’t that much better, I was still deeply sad about my loss.
In January I had a terrible accident and crushed my left knee. I was in surgery and now I’m still recovering. The doctors said it would take 3 to 6 months until I’m my old self again.
Sheepy and our two sons are taking good care of me. Thank God! But you can imagine that there was no time for coding since November. Sheepy did not forget about eFiction at all! Neither did I. I just wanted you guys to know what was going on in our lifes.
