    Hi Ronak

    umbraco smart blog is a very good package for such scenario.

    https://our.umbraco.org/projects/starter-kits/smart-blog/

    and it is very ease to use. having all functionality like tag, author.. etc

    I would like to say thank you to all of you for quick reply.

    I tried simply forums and dialogue packages.

    but these packages are not same as my requirement i must have to do customization with it.

    so simple my question is

    If my all all User come from different platform like share point or anything. There are multiple groups each group contain multiple users.

    I have to set permission like group one can comment or reply only those question which category is "abc",same as group 2 can comment or reply those question which category is "xyz".

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Ronak Panchal.

    Hi Ronak,

    You could also have a look at the Dialogue package.

    https://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/dialogue/

    Hope this could be an option for you.

    Could you use the built in Umbraco Member Groups and then specify which forum threads are allowed by a specific member group? I have´nt tried these above packages, but i imagen that you can customize their code to fit your needs?

    Otherwise, you´ll probobly have to build your own forum from scratch without a package.

    I think that going over in one post how to build a complete fourm from scratch is a bit overwelming, but did you know that this fourm (Our.Umbraco) is avalible for download the source code? You could use that as a reference when you are building your own forum. https://github.com/umbraco/OurUmbraco. They make use of the Umbraco Members and all kinds of Member Groups. You can use their code as a "CheatSheet" :)

    Best of luck to you!!

    Hello Dennis,

    What can i do if i want to customize that surface controllers in packages. the whole logic are settled in a DLL.

    If i can change in that DLL then its useful and I do Customization it.

    I quess you cant if they are all settled in a dll. You could however download the sourcecode, customize the surfacecontroller and then include that dll into you project instead.

    Hi All

    I installed this package https://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/simpily-forums/

    But it does not include functionality to comment and tag
