Project Description

A forum package for Umbraco 6.1+ based upon the our.umbraco forum


nForum is a simple forum package for Umbraco and originally based on the current forum, it has been built and tested with Umbraco 6.1+ and full trust (It will NOT work on Medium Trust).

I have tried to build this purposely so it requires no third party tables and most importantly that it's really easy to extend by simply adding a property to a doctype, then updating the models and model mapper in the source code and that’s it.
