    Are there any plans to add features to the forums module in SF 5.x? It provides only basic functionality. I'd like to see signatures, emoticons, etc. that forums users seem to expect. I'm running SF 5.1 and have looked at the release notes for 5.2 and 5.3 and there have not been any new features.

    I agree as well. We would love to have more advanced forum module.

    Good/Advanced forum module can add a lot of value to sitefinity when compared to other CMS.

    Regards,

    Me too. I'm afraid this could take a while...

    What also needs to be corrected is the way forum update emails work: right now people can get an email for each and every new post in a forum. Hardly anyone wants to receive that many emails. There should be an email digest option associated with the user account, where the user can choose how often he wants an email with an overview of the activity in all or some forums.

    Hello everyone,

    Thnak you for sharing with us your constructive feedback on the Forums module.

    The roadmap for Sitefinity 6.0 has already been set, and is published on our site.

    The development plans for the upcoming release are set in motion, so we're not able to commit to implementing the below mentioned requests for the 6.0 release, but we'll definitely see if we can squeeze some of them in.
    In any case these would be taken into consideration for the upcoming releases.
    I've also logged them in PITS so you can keep track of their status:

    Emoticons
    Signature
    Digestion

    All the best,
    Boyan Barnev
    the Telerik team

    I just checked PITS and there are only 3 items with an open status.  Is Telerik still using PITS?
