Question about rich "forums" / "bulletin board" integration with Confluence

Hi all

We (Iclelandic Radio Amateurs) are running a Internet facing web, today we use Confluence 3.5.13 (actually runnning and older version, but we have 3.5.13 running on a different host ready to take over)

We have a phpBB board on the side, that is not used alot - we would be ever so happy if we could:

- integrate some kind of a BB/Forum software within the confluence system / look

- Share the Confluence user database with the BB

We have looked at Communty bubbles and are quite lost - would that be the way to go (before I dive into that system)

Does anyone have any good tips for us, usage examples etc to help us with this project ?

Hi Benedikt,

We don't provide forum/BB functionality out of the box, but there are a couple of resources you should check out:

There are some areas in which Community bubbles may not satisfy you as it lacks the below features (as per my understanding)

  1. Replies to be handled via emails into the forums
  2. Forum level administrators for spam and content management
  3. Forum level security to be enforced, as the pages follow the space level security
