Anyone here familiar with Joomla 1.5?
I have been looking for a Forum Component, and I'm no developer to the extent that I can program new components for joomla on my own...
There is one called "Fireboard" but it doesn't work for 1.5...
Any help here would be great.
Haven't used Joomla in ages, but as far as it was always easiest to use another forum software and bridge it - vbb and smf used to work.
I personally have switched from Joomla to Drupal.
Fireboard is not bad at all. I have put it onto a couple of installations and it seems to be holding up ok.
I tried an install of fireboard but for some reason it failed... its 1.5 legacy (apparently that is keyword for crap)
[EDIT]I HAVE used fireboard on 1.0 and it works fine... [EDIT]
scratch that... I just noticed something.. haha..
legacy is a plugin.. and it needs to be on to use older extensions
No it's not a keyword for crap!
1.5 legacy mode means that it reverts the 1.5 installation into 1.0 mode so that older plugins and components can still be run.
Which is useful if you have upgraded but still need some older components.

There's a new one, I think it's called Agora if I remember right. You can check the Joomla forum because I remember seeing a fairly long thread on it..
You can use phpbb3, i am currently developing a skin that matches the white theme to rhuke default templat... should be done in a few days... if thats the theme you use.
