nForum

*** PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS PACKAGE IF YOU LIKE IT - THANKS ***

nForum is a simple forum package for Umbraco and originally based on the current our.umbraco.org forum, it has been built and tested with Umbraco 4.8+ and full trust (It will NOT work on Medium Trust).

1.7 works on Umbraco 6.1+ only
1.6 works on Umbraco 4.8+
1.5 works on Umbraco 4.7+

I have tried to build this purposely so it requires no third party tables and most importantly that it's really easy to extend by simply adding a property to a doctype, then updating the models and model mapper in the source code and that’s it.

Read more here, also if you are having installation problems. It goes through some basic checks.

Examine:

v1.7 DOES NOT use Examine.

v1.5 of nForum uses Examine v1.4 and the binaries for it are bundled within the package.  So your existing Examine binaries will be replaced with these updated ones.

The source code is available on codeplex so you can easily extend it as you need.
