I know this has been discussed a little bit on here, but I'm asking if any one has successfully implemented a Members Discussion Forum using CraftCMS ?

Or, if anyone knows of an add-on roadmap to include this type of functionality ?

I'm really trying to avoid having to use EE to accomplish this.

TIA, Eric


You may want to look at http://vanillaforums.org/ its open source and php based like craft. You host it yourself so no need to worry about a Saas providers longevity (they do offer a hosted option as well at vanillaforums.com)

It has a single sign on option that seems to allow for a basic forum but I havent yet actually tried it, although we have a project coming up this fall that we will likely use it for.

Obviously a custom developed plugin would be the ideal option but that may or may not happen anytime soon.


I would also go the SSO way: Install a nice stand-alone discussion forum and connect it with Craft:


Just about to start a project where we will be integrating Muut.com, and using their Single Sign-On functionality to make it a pretty seamless experience for our users. Wish I could have native functionality (always worried that any SaaS provider will one day go away), but they look to be the best option.
