Forum module

Recommended Posts

Is there any kind of forum module/plugin ? I mean there is this support forum here, but I can't find anything related to make one myself, how is this one done?

Any advice is very welcome!

This forum here is powered by https://www.invisioncommunity.com/ - it's a paid solution.

You could (technically) build something like a forum with ProcessWire itself but there is no real ready-made module/solution for that. All parts you would need are out there but at the same time it may end in a lot of work.

Depending on what you really need and want, you might want to look for a real forum solution.

Back in the day https://www.phpbb.com/ was kind of the best solution or at least it was easy to maintain. There are probably way more, maybe even better solutions out there. Yet I don't know any of them.

Didn't know they were still alive. Used it once or twice with pretty good results back then.

Are you referring to Vanilla Forums?

Yes, I was referring to them. Back in the days when I used it, their project started to look unmaintained and kind of outdated.
That was years(!) ago so it doesn't really matter anymore. But still... I was pleasantly surprised.

There is also Flarum, which is somewhat similar to Discourse (which uses Ruby on Rails).

Incidentally, phpBB announced a new major release yesterday (3.3). Their next major release (4.0) will feature a new default theme. They use Symfony components now and Twig for templates.

I would never call these "discussion boards" a forum though. I am glad we have a proper forum and not something like these.
