Discussion forum plugin

NOTE: THIS IS NON-FUNCTIONAL AS OF 2005/07/17

-- So has this plugin been abandoned? Are there alternatives? 20051127

Description

The DiscussionPlugin adds discussion forums to Trac. An arbitrary number of forums can be added, and each forum has a list of moderators who can block posts, etc.

This hack requires the AdminConsoleProviderPatch for administration.

Source

You can check out the source for DiscussionPlugin from Subversion at http://trac-hacks.swapoff.org/svn/discussionplugin.

Installation

In this process, I've got Trac installed in /srv/trac and the discussion module installed in /srv/trac-discussion.

Note:: You will need to install the AdminConsoleProviderPatch.

Install the entire discussion tree into /srv/trac-discussion, then add the following to /srv/trac/conf/trac.ini:

[discussion]
module = discussion
path = /srv/trac-discussion

The next step is to upgrade your environment:

# trac-admin /srv/trac upgrade

That should be about it. Use TracAdmin to add forums.

Example
