Hello I was just thinking about moving everything under one area so that meant doing away with my other systems and going fully with PHPCoin but then I realized I would be missing 2 elements that I plan to use a lot in the near future.

1. A forums (Nothing to extensive but main categories with sub categories and some basic admin functions I think would work nicely)
2. A calendar

Have you guys ever considered adding these things to coin?

A forums could save me some time with repeated questions or get others to lend a hand. I have started to use the F&Q but this is time consuming.

The calendar would be great for scheduled maintenance and other notices.

This might not be good for everybody but I think the majority could make use of it.

1) Never going to happen - there are plenty of forum suits available and our users can't even agree on what software we should use for this support forum - whatever we did would be wrong !

2) We have briefly discussed the possibility of doing an integration of eGroupware or some other software suit with phpCOIN v2 - but this is very much a long term project (if indeed it ever happens) so don't expect it any time soon after v2 is released. v2 will include a much more advanced To-Do implementation that might suit your needs smile.gif

The forums that are available are not an easy integration as far as a user signing in once and seeing 1 design. But I wouldn't use one of these existing forum systems they would be to bloated, I would add a much more simpler one just along the lines for the posting with the admin able to edit the posts.

That's assuming the users upgrade to V2. I am not sure I can manage the costs that are associated with the user levels and may be stuck in the present version.

I gather from your reply that you are are looking for additions to the free version - not going to happen I'm afraid - no new features are planned or being added by developers. (The only time a feature gets added is to solve a wider issue, like the 3 decimal place tax calculation required in some states)

If you develop forum or calender functions that would work as an add-on module - we would be happy to list it on the downloads page smile.gif
