Make sure you have the latest version of the forum module (

Note that the module doesn't yet use the memberprofiles module. That is a planned feature -

Willr I have copied from a poster at GitHub as have no idea where that is or why I need to be a member to post there when I am already a member here.

Have been having the same thoughts... would be great to start modularising forum module a bit more. Allowing bolt on profiles/registration, tagging posts, mark as solved, Q&A. Should forum registration be further abstracted to site registration? Usually a forum is a feature of a site rather than something I need or want to sign up separately for.

If you think this is a forum worthy of a CMS system like yours I am somewhat disappointed.

Firstly you have a number of bugs in your forum in just a few minutes on here. The "Go to End" button doesn't work but "Go to Top" does. When you search on text in a post the search results link when you click on them do not take you to the actual post that the text came from. That is a real issue in large threaded forums.

I think what you need to do is first up modernise to at least get the same sort of functionality that you have in the main CMS. For example you have no text editor here and expect us to know html codes to create italics/bold/lists/dot points/numbered lists etc. etc. While doing that you could easily put a module in that allows drag and drop of files or attachments. The days of choose a file or a browse file box are getting to be long gone and you already have that functionality.

Other key issues
You have no ability to "quote existing text" in a reply
No ability to "whisper" or send a private post in line (within the thread) as there is no security on the posts.
You can't "Like or Dislike a post (thumbs up or thumbs down) which is a handy feature to gain impressions on whats sensible and whats not.
You cannot create a "private topic" with say an admin or another member

Killer features found only in the best standalone forums:
• Tagging system to enable posts to be tagged for later follow ups is an absolute key thing to have.
• Private forums under your own personal profile to allow you to set up a virtual forum within your own closed member friends and business colleagues. I would call these Personal Topics.
• Special site word dictionary of banned usage words
• member points system where members get points for posting and can gift points to other members as a reward to excellent posters
• Auto allocated avatar symbols against member avatar for members who are paid up members or members who have donated to a site.

Forum options to think about:
Preview a Post (before posting)
Delete post
Edit post
Tag posts
Report post
Warn member
Quote post
Whisper post

@OneRingRules, as like everything in SilverStripe development of a feature is based significantly on funding / client work. I haven't had requests for forum for a while but if you have needs, happy to implement any set of features ad hoc.

wow looking at the time in Wellington I suspect you are either one really dedicated developer or just coming home from a gig in the capital city. (assuming I have your profile sorted) ... I have your email and will make contact seperately. I assume you could simply plug in a forum (there are lots of them) but there is no integration with the rest of the site.

Looking at some of the sites Silverstripe have developed I thought the crew may well have retired by now... :)

Thank you for latest answers

I am sorry for that because i don't like website with package.json

I would like to manage default directory like phpBB or Joomla or wordpress are very smiler than SilverStripe.
I don't there becasue they are coded trebble because part of html5 like <html> ... </html> are important tags for open and close...

But i see any non-open or non-close tags see like illegal. I am but mad because wordpress and SilverStripe are lazy with non-openned and non-closed tags

for Example:
index-body.html or
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Example Title</title>

Worng way: = Please don't use old non-openned and non-closed tags. It is not allowed.
<p>Example Header</p>

Correct way: = It is allowed for us Please write complete our openned and closed tags for <html> .. </html>
<p>Example Header</p>

and more contents for our website.

Because Syntax errors get from firelog or firebug from Chrome or Firefox And IExplore 11 opens sometimes error message because it got security error messages

Thanks i am here back.

Please improve our pages from non-openned and non-closed tags into openned and closed tags Thanks!

@SourceSkyBoxer, can you please let me know how your post here is relevant to this thread (which was about the forum module to start with).

If I'm understanding correctly (and please correct me if I misunderstand), you are pointing out the some of the template files (with the file extension .ss) do not have full HTML semantic tags in them.

It is common for SilverStripe template files to be Includes, that is, they only have part of the overall page markup within them and when combined via the template engine they construct a final semantically correct page. This is how the templating engine works.

It is not incorrect that some files do not have <html><head><body> tags, please read up on how SilverStripe templates work at:
