The new WSC Connect app

Hey folks,

I'm Lena and I'll be helping out here in future with interesting magazine articles about WoltLab and the plugins from Darkwood.Design. 🙂

After over a year of tinkering, testing and optimising, it's finally here: the brand new WSC Connect app. We're not talking about a minor update here, but a completely new development - fresh, bold and state-of-the-art!

What's new?

  • Sleek design, maximum content:
    We have swung the broom and thoroughly tidied up the design of the app. The result? More content on your screen and intuitive operation that is really fun to use.

Backend power thanks to WoltLab:
A lot has also happened under the bonnet. The WSC Connect website and the admin area are now based on WoltLab, which not only ensures rapid performance, but also makes further development child's play. New rules, more possibilities:
Attention, important! You now need an account on the website to log in to the app dashboard. Sounds like more work, but it has one big advantage: you can manage multiple apps and forums with just one login. How cool is that?

Important for forum operators!

Here are a few quick facts in advance:

  • The new plugin is already available and can be installed in 5.5 or 6.0 (the new plugin is a basic requirement for linking to the new app)
  • The new admin dashboard is already live. New users can register there (the old dashboard has been switched off)
  • The new 2.0.1 version has already been delivered to Google Play and the App Store and must be installed by all members of your site.

Important: For the app to work, all three points must be synchronised. This means that the new plugin must be installed, the registration/linking in the admin dashboard must be completed and the app must be updated to 2.0.1 on the users' devices.

Step-by-step instructions:

You can find detailed step-by-step instructions here: How can I connect an old existing app?

Never heard of WSC-Connect?

How to connect your forum to WSC-Connect is explained here: How can I register a new app?

Important info:

  • The app needs a new logo and a category from you. Without these things, your app will gradually become invisible, deactivated and later deleted.
  • Old apps that have not switched to the new dashboard by 01 June 2024 will be deactivated and later deleted. We want to keep the app clear and lean so that only really active forums are listed.

Important for app users!

Your forum admin must carry out the above steps so that the app runs in the new version 2.0. After the app update to 2.0.1 you have to log in again. If there are any problems, reinstalling the app may help.

Any questions?

You can already find lots of answers in the FAQ: Open FAQ

I'm really looking forward to your feedback and to a lively exchange in the comments!

  • I'm going to uninstall it again, I keep getting error messages

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the app, but my users are complaining that they can't click on the come back button, the button is missing or how can this be solved?

    Here's the complaint as a quote


    1. Special characters in the password, which don't cause any problems in the web version, cause funny effects in the app: I am logged in to the app and can see my notifications and messages, but I am not logged in to the "Website" tab and get an error message saying that the password (already pre-filled by the app) is incorrect. Even after inserting the correct password from the password manager, it is not accepted... After I temporarily changed my password to one without special characters (only -_ and brackets), these problems disappeared. I can't say whether the error lies here in WSC Connect or somewhere in the caravan forum.

    2. I can't find a function in the app to go back a page: if I have opened and read a thread from the list of unread posts, I can't get back to the list. Android's back button takes me straight back to the app's home screen where I can select the forum I want. If I select the caravan forum there again, I land back on its start page. I couldn't find a back button in the app that takes me back to the last page


  • Just to clarify a question of understanding:

    • Is it intended that you can log in with your old login data? Or does EVERYONE have to register again?
    • I get an error when I try to log in with my old data in the new dashboard that the email is not known.

    Since you only read in every news so far that the old dashboard is / was switched off, but it is not clear from this whether the old user data has been migrated to the new system, I'll ask here.


  • Which site is the right one now? or wsc-connect?

  • Hello, I'm looking forward to the new app :).

    At the moment I can't access the new dashboard on my smartphone, regardless of the browser and despite clearing the cache. I get the old one displayed.


    • Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

      can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

      if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

      that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.

      there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.


      for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

      So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.

      Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

      ( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

      if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

      same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.

      I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

      Why should you waste your time?


      all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.

      im not talking these all things from my own.


      in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

      cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

      tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.


      if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

      5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

      and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".


      If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit s.ex, no g.ambling, no d.rugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

      Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

      if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.


      Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.



      every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )


      if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( triple w ( d . o . t ) asitis ( d . o . t ) c . o . m {Bookmark it })

      read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, s.ex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.
