Introduction

The DotNetNuke® Forum is a full featured module used for managing forums and email notification of posts on your DNN site.

About Forum

The bare bones definition of a forum is the ability for people to start threads and reply to other people's threads. However, most forum software provides considerably more than this. Most forum software allows more than one forum to be created. These forums are containers for threads started by the community. Depending on the permissions of community members as defined by the board's administrator, they can post replies to existing threads and start new threads as they wish. A forum administrator typically has the ability to edit, delete, move or otherwise modify any thread on the forum. These moderator privileges are often able to be delegated to other forum members. The reasons for having these abilities are often to allow peace to be maintained and the rules to be enforced.

History

The Forum module was originally created by Tam Tran Minh of TTT Corporation. It was integrated into the DotNetNuke 3.x platform and contributed as an official project by Bryan Andrews at AppTheory. Chris Paterra, then with AppTheory, has maintained the module since its original contribution and maintains it on behalf of DotNetNuke Corporation today.
