// Require https
if ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] != "on") {
    $url = "https://". $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    header("Location: $url");

• Edited "fb-callback.php" in order to work with the new "Use Strict Mode for Redirect URIs" function

• Initial release | HTML/CSS/PHP
• Backend with Parse PHP SDK hosted on

Made from iOS and Android apps makers, Topics is a Responsive HTML/CSS Website Template where users can browse random questions or even search them and join exciting conversations by posting/reading comments on each Topic.
This app allows users to earn special KARMA points based on created topics, posted comments and up-votes received for their topics/comments from other people.
It also has all the required report features for inappropriate topics, comments and/or users.

You may also use the Adminca CMS Panel for Parse apps as a great alternative to insert/edit data in your Parse Dashboard, after you’ll create your app on back4app, create a free account on and create a new Panel, choose Self-hosted Parse server and paste your Host link, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you can find them into Core Settings of your back4app dashboard)

Can I host Parse Server on my own server?

Yes, although I don’t provide support for the setup process, you can read the official Guide here:

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.
