Well thought functions, everything a user expects and ease of use are markable features of this Fireboard successor.
But currently it is only available as a legacy version and therefore i would never recommend to use it in a native environment: The price for switching to legacy just for an forum is to much for me.
I know that the friendly developers are working on this issue and i hope that they get out an native version soon because i really want to kick that phpBB3 into the trashcan.
Keep it on your watchlist but give it some time to get matured! If it comes out native, an "Excellent" rating will be fair.
This is the forum component for Joomla right now in my opinion. I've tried a few forums and this one seems to have one of the best balances between maturity and updates/advancement
Big fan of 1.8 and very much looking forward to their native 1.5.x/1.6(?) version.
I had tried Agora once I found out about the Fireboard project falling to pieces and am so glad to be coming back to this much cleaner forum system.
I have to agree wholeheartedly with cowboysdude's review, especially about the use of Kunena with CB 1.2 and uddeIM being the perfect combination and it certainly has become the de facto Joomla standard.
The Support for this is also top-notched! For basically a FREE forum this is awesome!! IF it's not the best already it will be by the time its all said and done! I guarantee it! I have tried a few and finally.. finally found something that both myself and my users really enjoy!
Changing template colors and icons is a breeze [if you have any experience!]. There are plugins for CB as well as PM systems that will integrate with this forum very easily. I suggest Kunena, CB and Uddeim for a great system!
Take it from me.. you will be VERY happy with this package, not only from the ease of use but again the outstanding support you will get if you run into any trouble.
SECOND TO NONE... has become the standard!!
The only issue i had was on install, but i unzipped package first, ftp'd it to my server and then used the install manager to install from URL....everything worked just fine, i am using Joomla 1.5
keep up the good work
The amount of bug-fixing and new features is amazing! In my point of view this is the default choice of forum solution.
The support at the kunena homepage is very good. The developers are (hyper) active, and very helpful!
I was pretty sure that Fireboard was a good choice as a base for my website forum. Other forums for Joomla! was not interesting, and now Kunena is the proof that à was right to stick to this base.
Then thanks to the Kunena team !
I was one of the first triers of kunena on a live production site itself. Well i instantly liked it and made my installed plugins to work with kunena!
I uninstalled fireboard and installed kunena a site with i realized i was on the live site and not on the local server without peeking on the address bar... LOL! But since it claims it has many bugfixes and enhancements from fireboard, I have to risk and persue... And did not go back!
At the time of writing this, my installed version is 1.0.6 and on its state on my site, it really surpasses the old sluggish fireboard.
It will be 1.5 native soon! An very awesome jomsocial integration.
Congratulations Kunena Boys!
