    Hello,

    I have not been able to find a nice list of features available in the forum module.  Here are the features I am looking for in a forum.  Does sitefinity provide the following?

    Single Sign On (SSO)  - yes
    Group Users
    Role-based Security
    Share Documents
    Share Media
    Email Notification - Thread Level
    Email Notification - Forum Level
    Customizable Interface
    Search Functionality
    Direct Communication (user to user) - send a message to only one user.

    Hi Eric,

    We still do not have a Forums module. We have taken your features in mind though. 
    Your Telerik account has been updated for these suggestions. 

    Thank you!

    I got to this forum via your sitefinity site.  I was asking the question in relation to the existing sitefinity forum module.

    Hello Eric,

    Unfortunately the only features that we support now are these ones:
    - Customizable Interface
    - Group Users

    Our next version should provide a major upgrade of this module. 

    Kind regards,
    Georgi

    Hi Pavol Kokinda,

    The forums module is not part of the Beta, this module will be implemented on a later stage.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello,

    I just wanted to post to this thread, because I too am looking to expand the functionality of the forum module.  I am very interested to know when we can expect to have more details about the 4.0 forum module.  For a view format, we also prefer the chronological posting, used here in the Telerik/Sitefinity forum, to the nested forum posts in Sitefinity (ref: http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-3-x/designing-with-sitefinity/change-layout-of-forum.aspx#1033672).

    Regards,
    Ed

    Just wanted to add my vote for a strong forum module. I'm currently evaluating Sitefinity. One of the main reasons to pick Sitefinity is that 3.7 includes a forum module (at least I though so), so I assumed 4.0 will include it as well. There's not a great choice of ASP.NET forum software out there, so it's a good selling point.

    I hope Telerik will soon provide more details about what forum features are going to be available, and when. I guess that's important for 3.7 clients using the forum module as well.

    Is there potentially a Roadmap for the Forum module?

    I have a project which is looking like March to start, and it hinges on basic Forum functionality...and I'd like to use 4 since we already have an active license :)

    Hello Steve,

    We will come up with a Road Map for the Forums module after the official release of Sitefinity 4.0.

    I don't think it's SO important...I mean the 3.7 one wasn't great so I don't think many people really actively used it to the point where 4.0 needed it at release to migrate.

    That being said, NEW projects I have require a decent module :)

    Still no update on the Forums module? I know this is the RC version, so do we still have an Official Release version coming? In fact it doesn't appear we have any 4.0 modules on the Marketplace, I guess its to early.

    Hi Robert,

    We are not going to add new modules in Sitefinity 4.0 for the official release. Forums module will not be included in the official release of Sitefinity 4.0, but we will have it in Q1 -Q2.
    We will have a sample module release this on next week, so I believe that you will see some new modules in the marketplace shortly.

    So is this an indicator that there will be additional cost for future modules.

    License + VAT + Marketplace modules = £££s

    Hi Neil,

    Actually it is not. As our CEO has stated in another thread here, the whole concept of the Sitefinity 4.0 pricing was to settle it from the beginning and not change it afterwards, even though we will continually add more and more features.

    We are definitely aiming to enrich Sitefinity 4.0 with everything that Sitefinity 3.7 currently has, but we are far from the thought of stopping there. More to be announced in that roadmap that Georgi mentioned. As for the marketplace - third party modules and new value-adding features will be made available there. However the core functionalities a CMS should have will be added directly in the product (once again - without affecting the price at all).

    Best regards,
    Grisha 'Greg' Karanikolov

    I just noticed that we can vote for the Forums module to be implemented here.
