These forums you're looking at will be available as an add-on by the end of the year. If there are features you'd like to see in it that you're not looking at, let us know...

We've already got a spellcheck we just turned off.. what else?

I would just say that some people like a WYSIWYG editor for posts, and maybe some smilies?

- Quick reply box would be another idea.

Haven't tried but does [QUOTE]quote[/QUOTE] works?

users own posts are not editable, would be a good feature to have.

Also, the forums image addon requires you to resize manually your picture if within bounds. You can notice in my AV that the quality has really gone down. Original size for my avatar was 18KB, bigger than what your settings are tho but some forums keep the quality when resizing.

how will it work with the permissions? Will we be able to make have multiple separate forums where access can be controlled by page permissions?

yup.

what we have right now is a discussion list page type and a discussion page type. You can tie permissions to a group or individual though the same permissions interface as anywhere else.

So, for example, as we add pages for blocks and apps we'll be able to add a forum and issue tracker to each one of those pages and let the block owner administrate it.

... a search box inside each forum, in order to search only the postings in that specific forum.

... add the date/time of the initial posting

When it was said the forum add-on would be available at the end of the year was the the end of 2009? Looking forward to it :)

well my complete inability to actually find the thread where we brought up what got done in 08 and what didn't probably points to the limitations around search in our forums today....

to rehash.. yes, we intend to release it soon, no, not tomorrow. It works well for us but it's got a ways to go before its a shrink-wrappable product.

Very cool. Look forward to this greatly.

Oooh I can't wait for this.
I have a forum running externally but it'll be great to be able to integrate this into my C5 site.
Thanks for so much quality. :)

We have a University who could be interested in using C5. All classes and courses will have there own forum.

A few members of the beta crew are currently testing it..

It's not completely finished I think, but I seems to be quite stable so far!

Not sure if it's ready for a project like yours...

Hi Remo,

Hey can we transfer phpbb3 forums (Users + threads in database) to the concrete 5.
Means is there any script by which we can migrate forums from phpbb3 to concrete 5 forum(add on).

Thanks in advance.

Hmmmmm... end of the year... 2008...

What's the current ETA?
frz replied on at Permalink Reply

Dunno.

there is a copy of what we use here that a few folks are beta testing, but i already have a list of features we need to add to it before i'm comfortable releasing it.

As has been pointed out in other threads, we're still in a position where this development is happening in free time, so a large gig we're just now wrapping up has pretty much desomated any schedules we might have had for this project. Until we're financially in a situation where managing the core and building add-ons is all we worry about (and thats in the works), its just silly for me to make promises about when things will get done.

Wish i had a better answer.

Any news on this one? I'm wondering should I start to integrate separate forum engine (probably phpBB), start to build a simple forum myself or is the release just around the corner? Appreciate your efforts though, it's better to make it good before release, than to make a bunch of patches afterwards. :)

having the ability to site share users between phpBB and concrete5 would be valuable in the big picture.

forums are a beast.

Take a look athttp://www.minibb.com/synchronizing_minibb.html...

I have a site running with miniBB and c5. C5 is the back-end for user registration.

Thanks Griebel! Have to try MiniBB too, looks promising.
