    Forum package for Umbraco 8

    Hi guys, Is there any stable forum package for Umbraco 8? I see that most Forum packages have not been maintained for a long time. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    Hi Adrian,

    Have you found one? I'm looking for one as well :-)

    Hi Adrian and Dave,

    I am also looking for exactly that; a forum package that supports Umbraco 8.

    Can anyone from the community recommend a good package?

    Thank you in advance! 🙂

    There are none that I am aware of, there are a couple of very old ones but they do not work in version 8, not sure if the source is available but I would imagine it would be quite a big rewrite to get it working.

    You may be better off looking for a forum that can perhaps use the umbraco membership, or change the umbraco membership to use a forums membership provider and just integrate them that way.

    Hi Huw,

    Thank you for your input. 🙂

    Yes, the older packages have not been updated for ages, so I do not trust them in terms of Umbraco 8 compatibility or future scalability.

    I am tempted to resolve the situation by creating a reusable Forum solution based upon the Umbraco Membership foundation.

    If you need a starting point, although this is old and not compatible with v8, I have been able to work out most of what was done using a combination of the files and the package.xml to extrapolate what document types were created for it etc.

    I have currently got most of it working to a degree :)

    If I get chance to finish the upgrade of it to v8 I will try and repackage it all.

    I have almost completed rewriting the Simpily Forum package to work in v8, had to do quite a bit of rework in the backend stuff so need to do a bit more testing, but should be finished in a few days hopefully.

    Very interesting - I am looking forward to seeing the finalized 'version 1.0'. 🙂

    If anyone wants to see it in action, I have a test site up at Forum for Umbraco

    You should be able to register to make posts. I am currently testing the package install so should be able to release it soon.

    Any comments/observations welcome.

    try a longer password, I think the only restriction is length which is 10 by default in Umbraco
