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.
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.
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.
I tried to register, but got password validation error.
try a longer password, I think the only restriction is length which is 10 by default in Umbraco
ok, worked with longer password.
did you receive the validation email after registering?
is working on a reply...
