Forum?

I need to build a forum or simple message board in 5.7
Looks like the conversation doesn't work, it returns the following when trying to post a message:
Invalid Block Object.
Invalid Page.

There doesn't seem to be any add-ons to do it, any ideas how I can do this?

Thanks
Dave

I too, need this functionality for 5.7. I found this other forum thread here:

https://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/5-7-discussion/forum-addo...

From what it looks like, there will soon be improvements made to the Conversations feature so that a forum will be possible.

Thanks for the reply.

Not good news, I need to quote for a project with no idea how I'm going to do the forum now.

I have this in the works:http://forums.webli.us/forums I'm developing it for a couple client sites, I don't have an ETA yet on when it will be finished, right now I am just working on what the client needs are.

This looks great so far. I would need the add-on in 6-8 weeks, any chance it would be done by then?
Happy to contribute in any way I can :)

This looks awesome! I could use this for my 5.7 site! I'd be happy to contribute as well!

I'm using Concrete 5.7.5.1 and not experiencing the "Invalid Block Object. Invalid Page" bug that you are having. Hope your luck improves!

I experienced this error as well, but then realized I had put the conversation block in a global area, which of course would not work. As soon as I moved it to a non-global area it worked great.
