CSharpZealot.com needs a forum application...suggestions?
Well, the masterpages and controls are now created for the initial site schema of www.csharpzealot.com and i'm now working myself through houndreds of Forums/Bulletin Boards/Discussion Lists etc to see if i can find one that's suitable...
preferably it would be free - but i would be willing to pay for a license IF it would also get me the source code and rights to handle it in any way i saw fit (except reselling of course).
Looking at what is out there, here's a few items which i need to ensure is supported:
- SQL Server 2005
- ASP.Net 2.0
- Extensible via modules OR API OR source code
- C# (of course)
- Forms and/or Windows authentication (either way it must be able to use custom authentication source)
- Skinnable, via CSS and/or ASP.Net 2.0 Themes
Of course there's the question about basic functionality, but the following would be nice:
- RSS or Atom feeds
- Grouped/Cathegorised threads
- Security grouping of users (eg. Role based security)
So, if anybody know of an application (off the shelf if need be), please let me know..Thanks guys.
