Is there a way to export all the information under a forum page? I have a forum page called "openfire" with several threads that I'd like to export to a file or some kind of backup. Thanks

Well you can backup the forum page via your database. The module itself does not have anything specific to backing up but if you want to back up your mysql database you will want to backup the following tables...

* SiteTree - Stores all the live page data of all your pages, to back up just your forum you want to backup any records which have a ClassName of 'ForumHolder' or 'Forum'

* ForumHolder - Stores information about your forum holder (access rights, settings)
* Forum
* Post - Posts in the forum

And if you're using trunk you'll need the 'ForumThread' table.

Lots of tutorials on how to backup mysql online (eg http://www.devshed.com/c/a/MySQL/Backing-up-and-restoring-your-MySQL-Database/)
