    Hi Raj

    Currently there is no exact filter that allows you to see specific packages with 7.10.x support - However you can get an overview of v7 supported packages here https://our.umbraco.org/projects/?version=7 - To the right it will either say "N/A" or a version number like "7.9.0".

    But even though it might say "N/A" that does not necessarily mean that the package won't work with version 7.10 it just means that no one has reported back yet on the package page whether this worked with 7.10.x or not. Or any other 7.x version for that matter.

    Sometimes it's a matter of trial and error to figure out if a package still works with a never version of Umbraco or not.

    But luckily most of the packages are open sourced on Github so it's possible to create issues or even do pull requests with a fix that will make it work in a specific version if one has the skills to do so.

    I hope this helps a bit.

    /Jan

    Hi jan,

    I want to use forums in umbraco, which version of umbraco is preferable to use.I tried using Simply forum both in 7.5 and 7.10.4 versions but it's no use, not getting textbox to post comment or to reply.

    Thanks

    Hi Raj

    Ok, I just had a look at the package and in the documentation found at the package page here https://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/simpily-forums/ in the "Documentation" tab further down the page it says the following:

    people will have to be logged in to post​, so you need some membership authentication - that’s not in simpily forums [Although we are building Simpily Auth as another package]

    So you'll need to add some kind of membership authentication - I don't think that the package mentioned in the quote has been made since I was not able to find it. Don't know if it's released under another name maybe or if there is something already out there that can be used.

    Unfortunately I'm no backend developer myself so I can't guide you on how to build the membership authentication but perhaps you can figure something out by having a look at the API's

    https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Management/Services/MemberService

    https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Management/Services/MemberTypeService

    https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Management/Services/MemberGroupService

    Otherwise you could also try to post in the specific forum for the packgage here and see if the author of the package can provide you with some more insight https://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/simpily-forums/bugs-instructions-and-ideas/

    I hope this helps.

    /Jan
