The forum module is somewhat lacking in features compared to other forum software out there... which is annoying because I am having to use a different forums script (and either hack in some kind of password sync, or make users have 2 passwords).
The separate forum always look never exactly the same as the rest of the website and it's yet another system that I have to look after.
Is there any work to make the forums comparable to other forum software out there?
The biggest things for me (my managers and users) are;
* Visual Editor - "like other forums"
* Stronger control over who can modify what boards
Hi Matt we are planning an update to the forum in the next month (0.2) which will be a bugfix/code tidy up release but the features you mention could easily come under the next version after that where we would be looking at making the forum a bit more powerful! Our goal is to get a nice, stable, usable platform then hopefully as more people start using the forum module we can spend some more time on it.
