MyBB is under active, continuous development, both by members of the official Development Team and by members of the community.

You can contribute by testing the latest source code, reporting issues, and forking the project to submit bug fixes or add new features.

Contribute to the official documentation or translations

The MyBB Resources Team maintains the official MyBB documentation and manages third-party language translations. We use GitHub to both manage the documentation and as a central repository for third-party translations. You can contribute by adding to or revising the documentation or by helping with or creating a third-party translation.
