UMF is a small and lightweight discussion board build for Umbraco 6 using MVC. It integrates into the Content tree to let you manage everything from the backoffice. It allows discussion and answer creation from the frontend. Anonymous posting or with login can be set. It also contains a small karma system, a voting system for discussions and a little forum wide search powered by examine.
Just install the package. It comes with an default Master-View which is build with initializr. You can change the templates to your own Master-View.
The package needs two member propertys to work right if you are working with members. These are "karma" and "numberOfPosts". Please create these properties in your membertype.
UMF uses the Umbraco Dictionary for localised texts. It comes with english content for each item so make sure to update the dictioary items with your additional installed languages.
The structure and styling is made with twitter's bootstrap. So it works out of the box if you're using bootstrap. If not you can style it as you want. It has it's own stylesheet with some additional styling on top of bootstrap. You can see the styling in the screenshots on this site.
The packages uses jQuery.raty for the rating system and the CKEditor in a custom build for the discussion and answer creation. So make sure you're using the latest jQuery.
The package uses ActionMailer.Net for the notification emails when a new answer was made to a discussion. Mail-Templates can be modified and are listed in "Views/Mail/"-Folder. The notifications uses the relation api to connect users to discussion. So you need a new relation type called "UMF_EmailNotification" which has a parent of member and child of content.
