The old topics from http://forum.kohanaframework.org/ will be imported?
I am happy to get the forums back, it's a must.
Looks like Discourse has a vanilla import feature..
When php framework uses ruby forum it's so funny... http://esotalk.org/
Neat, didn't know that Discourse had that baked on!
But no, we won't be importing anything from the old forum, because of the huge amount of spammer accounts that exist there. We've done a lot to purge those accounts, but can't be sure that we got them all. Having a clean start seemed like a better option.
So what? We used Redmine (ruby) for years, and before that we used Trac (python). Good software is good software, regardless of what language it was written in.
This is the position the user, not the developer. As buy a macbook and install windows on it But, unfortunately, there is nothing to replace Redmine (Although to solve this problem quite github). Ideally, it should be written on our framework (writing a simple forum will take a week).
You can easily find and delete accounts in which no posts. Or at least shift the information(Introductions, Tutorials and Plugins, Development) that it was not lost.
exactly. we are users of the forum software, so why do you care what language it is written in?
you could do that if you thought it was really important, too.
I think the language doesn't matter if it works
We use Kohana for the forums of open classifieds http://forums.open-classifieds.com/ well actually is open classifieds with disqus integrated and moderation active from open classifieds and disqus. Works great to us.
Also we have a built in forum for Open eShop, you can see an example here http://market.open-eshop.com/forum (a really simple forum).
I can do it, but those who are familiar with the structure of the old forum it happen faster. Usually it's just a few sql queries.
About language, we have a proverb for this: shoemaker without shoes.
as I said, we won't be importing any of the old forum. i thought you meant a copy/paste a couple of the stickies from the old forum over, which would be acceptable.
we? discussed this somewhere?
