History of BoardsPackage

The boards package is a forum package for bitweaver that is well integrated via LibertyServices and LibertyComments. It provides a way to link comments on any content into a forum in the boards package as well as have unlinked forums and topics in the package itself.

Boards is also integrated with the Pigeonholes package. Boards may be categorized into various categories and will show up within the boards home sorted according to the categories that they are in.

It currently supports locking threads and setting them sticky so they show at the top of the list for a given category. These are handled via ajax so the page does not have to be reloaded to toggle.

It has features for emailing users on changes to topics they are interested in as well as. It also has features for topic status tracking so that users can see which boards have new topics. It uses ajax to allow users to easily update the status without reloading the whole page.

Boards is very new and still a work in progress but the integration into the rest of bitweaver makes it a compelling alternative to ((phpBBPackage|phpBB)).

!!Synchronization with Mailing List
Boards has a feature allowing full bi-direction synchronization between an internet mailing list and a message board.

See the ((BoardsEmailListConfig)) page for details on how to use [http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/index.html|Mailman] in conjunction with boards.
