Hello

i dont know if i am right here, but i will try it now.

Maybe i can post some Feature Requests to improve the Functions for the Forum:

- Pagination inside a Board
- Set "hot topic" or "new" as a tag to modify it
- Trackback links

Maybe you are about to add those Functions.

I didnt find a Roadmap or something like that.

Thanks!

You can add feature requests as news tickets to http://open.silverstripe.com. Sign on on that site and click the new ticket tab. When creating the ticket make sure you assign it to the modules forum component.

When you make a feature request it is good to be as descriptive as possible and to outline the user case for it.

Pagination inside a Board?

Sorry what are you referring to? Forum Topics and Forum Threads are both paginated.

Set "hot topic"

What would a hot topic do? Eg display in a list somewhere? We have sticky threads which stay at the top of the Forum Topics list but what would a hot topic do?

Trackback links

You can get the link to the correct forum and post by clicking the little arrow on the title of the users post. This will show you the direct link to that post. How would trackbacks display?

There's already a small report for showing popular threads by post count or view count.

Here's a demonstration of it working for this site's forum: http://silverstripe.org/forums/popularthreads?by=posts
