Forum_XH facilitates the embedding of simple forums on a CMSimple_XH site. The user management relies on Memberpages_XH or Register_XH. Posting requires to be logged in as member, though the forums can be viewed publicly. This way no further provisions are necessary to avoid spam, and posting doesn't require any additional input such as user name, email address etc. Forum_XH features a markup editor allowing basic BBCode markup. All data is stored in flat files which are protected from concurrent access by pessimistic locking of the whole forum, so Forum_XH is not suitable for heavily frequented forums. Furthermore typical advanced forum features such as user signatures, PM, subscribing to topics etc. are not available.
It requires CMSimple_XH ≥ 1.6 and PHP ≥ 5.1.2. It is released under GPLv3.
Forum_XH couldn't be tested so far in various environments. It is a so called beta version. Use with caution!
