Harmony Forum

Harmony Forum is an upcoming distribution.

Harmony core is the first part and here's the initial feature set:

Forums and discussions

Discussion forums, sometimes called as message boards or bulletin boards, allow your users to participate in online conversations by posting responses. These conversations differ from chatrooms in that they are organized into subject-based threads and archived.

Multilingual forum

The Multilingual forum module, part of the Internationalization (i18n) package, helps with the multilingual configuration of the site forums.

Dependencies

The Multilingual forum module has a dependency on the core Forum module and the Taxonomy translation and Multlilingual content modules from the Internationalization package.

Artesian Forum

These docs are being written as though the module were complete. It isn't and I don't have an ETA so please don't ask.

Artesian Forum is a full featured, entity based completely native Drupal forum. It provides the expected forum functionality without using a bridge and therefore your forum content is first class content able to be mixed with other site content.

Migrating from phpBB

For the owners of a phpBB forum, there are two solutions:

  • either migrate the data of your board to a Drupal forum,
  • To Migrate phpBB3 to Drupal 7 Advanced Forum, one approach that does work is documented here:

    This particular case was upgrading Drupal 6 phpbb3 > drupal 7 advanced forum.

Enhancing Drupal's functionality

Ok, so you've installed Drupal and gotten it working. You've added a module or two, and maybe you've even changed the theme. Now you want to do more, and adding modules or changing the options doesn't seem to cut it. Maybe you've found that things don't look quite like you want them to, or you want there to be more functionality in a particular module.
