Can there be several forums?

Hi there, is it possible to use forums on several pages of the same Wackoi? I yes, what is the syntax in the amin panel to do so? My default setting in the admin window to define the forum cluster is just Forum.

  1. Multiple forums

    First the forum feature is still in its beta stage and therfore not documented.

    The config value forum_cluster defines where the forum is located. This is necessary to provide a unique path.
    So the actions forums and topics work only inside the forum cluster.

    To have multiple forums you can create subforums within the forum cluster


    forum [ {{forums pages="Forum/Discussions,Forum/Bugs,Forum/National"}} ]
    |_sub forums: National [ {{forums pages="Forum/National/Deutsch,Forum/National/Russian"}} ]
    | |
    | |_sub forum: Deutsch [ {{topics}} ]
    | | |_topic1
    | | |_topic2
    | |
    | |_sub forum: Russian [ {{topics}} ]
    | |_topic1
    | |_topic2
    |_forum: Bugs [ {{topics}} ]
    | |_topic1
    | |_topic2
    |_forum: Discussions [ {{topics}} ]
    | |_topic1
    | |_topic2

    Meta pages

    Important: The permissions for comments on all forum meta pages (those having the action forums or topics ) must be empty (access via pagename/permissions)


    Topic pages

    The engine sets special permissions for topic pages you usually create with the topic action, it recognises them over the name space.
    $write_acl	= '';
    $write_acl	= $user_name;
    $comment_acl	= '*';
    $create_acl	= '';
    $upload_acl	= '';

    Notice the empty 'create_acl'. The topic action shows only pages as topics with empty create_acl.
