Future of this forum

Post  hbomb on January 19th 2011, 12:00 am

OK, a few of you might have noticed, I've been playing around with the native forum functionality of Drupal, in our new fullcount website. Basically, I'm gearing up to retire this forum after 2016. There's a few reasons for doing so:

(1) Mainly ease of use. I would like a single environment for all league files and forum topics. League files and settings should be behind a sign-in area. We risk having the main league file, and server being hacked if we don't do this. That would really suck.
(2) This current site is too insecure for longer term use. On the topic of hacking... this current forum site was hacked and *deleted* last week, and it had to be restored
(3) In the process of restoring, I have lost admin control over the site. I can't edit, links, etc... there's nowhere to go but down.... and the forum provider has not restored my access. Damn computers.

Yes, points 2 & 3 suck. But we're mostly moving because Drupal offers solid forum functionality... and having one single sign in environment will be a step up for the league. Also, the downside of not implementing number 1 is too great to ignore.

Please note. I'm still playing around with the forum functionality, and we might migrate to Drupal 7 before this is finally done. We're currently on drupal 6.9
Cheers,

Ok, have been doing my homework, and it appears that Drupal 7 is not ready for prime-time. I still want to have a single sign-on environment in the future, but we'll have to wait a little on this. I'm urgently trying to deep-six this current forum prior to 2017, so we have control over it.

I'm currently running some tests with SMF and PHPBB.
