This post will be reported to the moderators as potential spam to be looked at
Hi Morten,First off all, this is a great package. The isuses: I would like to edit spelling mistakes or delete af hole topic. Case: - If the user spelles wrong I would like be able to edit the topic-text.- If the user makes pretty bad posts i would like to be able to delete only that post an not the entire node.Is that possible?
Best regardsPalle Hansen
Glad you like it.
So would this be a moderator feature? Or should it be the user himself that should be able to edit the post? Would you like to correct it in the frontend, or in the admin area?
Do you have enough rights to ban a user? Or to moderate in some kind? I'm afraid we've got our first real spammer.

Hi Morten,It should be an moderator feature and it should be in the admin area (backend).
Unfortunately, I think this is unusable without an admin system :-( You can create the forums via Umbraco admin, but you can't (as far as I can see) edit / moderate any posts - unless you access the database directly. The project I need it for does not have the budget to allow me to create the admin section.
Some people have elevated rights and can edit/move/delete posts. It's all done through ajaxy base calls. uForum is supposed to be a 'basic starter' package for people that want forum functionality, and it's up to the developer to extend the functionality as required.
Dirk, I appreciate that it is a "basic starter" but in my opinion having some sort of admin system is mandatory. It's a real shame that the posts do not end up as nodes in Umbraco (underneath the forums that you create via Umbraco!), then admin would be easy (or easier!).
I agree that some basic admin stuff would suit the package, but that is the reason it is open sourced, as I don't have a lot of time to develop on this. And it _is_ a version 0.0.7 :-)
Morten, great work on this and in general Umbraco community and support.
Has there been any progress on any basic admin functionality on this?? If not, I'm going to take a crack at it but wanted to see if there's anything to leverage yet.
I have not started anything, so I don't think anything has been done yet. Let me know if you want developer access to the codeplex project. Or just submit the changes as a patch. Maybe make a separate dashboard project so that it works as an addon?
I need to build something similar for an immediate client. Is this something we can help each other out with? Save us both creating something from scratch...
I posted a comment two days ago on here... not sure why it didn't display. Anyways, I'm in a similar situation. I've extended the current solution to delete and update comments for users assigned to a member type of forum admin. It works via ajax and requires an admin user to be created and to login to the forum. I changed the xslt files to display the comments as text boxes for the forum admin and allow ajax calls to a forum web service that interfaces with the uForum solution. It works pretty well so far. If you'd like, you could create a similar functionality for topic administration.
I extended the current system and added the ability for forumadmins to edit and delete topics and comments. Not sure how you'd want to add this. Let me know. zpcohen @ tadasolutions.com
Would be awesome if this could be added to the project, was almost started to work on this for a client project.
I agree, it would be good if it could be added as I was about to have a look at the package with the view to correcting some of the XHTML and potentially adding to the admin community built interface :)
Zac, sent an email to get your codeplex username. Will give you commit access, and then everyone can take a look at your changes, and we could make a package of it if requested. Otherwise people can just use the source and install manually.
Would be good with a list of the changes you made. For example if there are any changes to the DB Schema and so on.
I too am in need of a lightweight forum but MUST have the basic ability to remove topics and posts as needed. The backend would be fine, but a delete button should be available for front end privilaged usrs as well.
Has there been any progress on this?
William, I just sent credentials to Zac so that he can add hist changes to the source. Keep an eye on the source on codeplex site for his updates.
Thanks... I am not sure how people are getting by without this and some basic functionality to allow memberst to change their passwords and email addresses.
For now, I'm just going to zip up all of the files that have changed and put a link to it on my website in the blog area - www.tadasolutions.com. I'll add it to codeplex shortly.Please leave comments on my site with your thoughts and give it a thumbs up here if you like it.

SAWEEEET!!!..... I have been waiting for this :)
Thank you so much Zac. I havent tried it out yet, but I will in the next couple of days, and then I will leave my feedback on the project.
I followed your blog post on how to add further administation functionality and nothing appears to happen/be any different. I have rechecked I did everything in order and the SQL script triggers are executed.
I'm running 4.0.3 and have no errors. I'm not quite sure where to look for reasons why it would not be working. My .Net skills are non existant.
Did you login to the forum as a forumadmin user? When you do that, you should be able to moderate the topics on the forum itself. Let me know if you have any questions. If you do, please post them on the blog, as I don't check this regularly.
I'm getting the same issue as Ian, but also can't post to your blog as the recaptcha just keeps reloading and there's no option to enter comments, I've emailed in case you don't see this, but I can't initially see where the textboxes and buttons come from to make the editing possible, and yes I'm loged in as a forumadmin user. I added a heading to the forumAdmin.xslt so I can tell straight away if logged in correctly or not and that is working.
I've just started my first project with uForum and will post and findings back here.
The issue with the Forum Admin package is that the xslt files for editing or deleting the comments or topics hasn't been included. I've asked Zac if he can send/post then and I'll let you know when I hear back, alternatively this could be done by looking at the code used on this forum, although it's been altered since the uForum package was released with the addition of Voting, and Voting Thresholds, though I'm sure these bits can be extracted given a bit of time. I'll be having a look at this as I have a project that requires it, but not until Thursday or Friday at the earliest (client meeting tomorrow to prepare for).
Hello quixltd. Any luck with obtaining the xslt files for edit and delete? If so a post or link to the files would be much appreciated. :)
I updated the download script on my site to include the missing comments-list xslt file and updated the post. Make sure you include the jquery script. Contact me via my site if you're still encountering any issues.
