Create a Forum

Id like to create a Forum like this one.

Are Webassist thinking of producing something that may be able to do this? or and suggestions would be most welcome.

And also a behaviour to create a pdf from dynamic content in a php webpage.

Check out vbulletin or phpBB, those are some of the most common forums out there.

Some hosts have <forums> pre-installed

All the functionality of these forums is pre-installed by some hosting companies. With ours you just pop in to the Admin console, activate an option, and everything works on via the URL forums.mydomain.com.

Our hosts are based in Geneva Switzerland and charge 80 euros per year per domain (correct Sept 09) for all you could want and more. This is just one of many scripts they offer pre-installed, including chat and a basic store.

Perhaps your hosts already offer this, or perhaps you could change to one?

Otherwise, every script I need I have always found something Open Source and satisfactory. Try searching for "php open source forum".

I would like this too as all of the other options out there are very hard to configure, and from what I can tell Site Scribe only work on your machine and not on your server to allow users to be able to create pdf style reports.

The open source options previously mentioned, require seperate login, so if one were running a registration site with protected content for example, another login would just frustrate the visitor.

I think if WA pursued a commercial forum to compliment it existing products, therw would be sufficicient interest - at the right price of course!

Maybe worth lobbying your users WA huh?

I'm aware of fpdf but have found that getting the right output is difficult when using repeat regions and formatted table cells.

I think that a WA extension that had the normal type of wizard would be far much more appealing and less time consuming.
