    When is Magnolia getting a decent Forum?
    #1 by adrien_be on Jun 4, 2013 3:39:31 PM

    Hi all,

    Why not move all to a stackexchange forum? or embed stackoverflow with "Magnolia CMS" tag? or another solution maybe!? sigh... there must be something better than this.

    I'm saying this because I've been frustrated many times in looking for solutions or communicating my issues. I might not be the only one who thought "Can't be bothered with the forum. It's too... old, unpractical, & so on". And as a result, did not bothered trying to answer questions nor post much of my issues.

    But I am also saying this because I believe Magnolia CMS could benefit from this (no need to mention the many obvious reasons). Hope this is heard/read as a support for more Magnolia CMS on the web, not simply as a complain.

    Thanks

    I do fully agree. Using a more decent communication plattform is a must for developing a more active community. At the moment using the forum isn't much fun at all.

    Cheers, Maik

    Good news for those interested in this topic: there was an unconference session about the Magnolia CMS community last week (Septembre 2013), Zak Greant (Community Manager at Magnolia International) was present as well as other Magnolia employees & users, and this is a known issue.

    Now, how long this is going to take to be addressed is another topic. Hopefully soon enough, but as we all know Magnolia is already busy working on lots of stuff (ie. lots of improvements/fixes on Magnolia 5 ] ) so I would not hold my breath.

    I will try to keep this thread updated if I hear of anything.

    sorry if this question or concern has been answered before, but is it possible to have an option to modify our postings?

    The forum platform is veeeeery old.
    Why not develop it together with a CE module (that we can also use in our projects)? I am pretty sure Magnolia can support us (forge, 50% developer!!, jira..)

    Hi Matteo!

    If you start such project in the Forge and outline the desired functionality, I will gladly join the effort, both with ideas and source code (as far as my limited free time allows me).


    Regards,

    Jozef.
