Is the the Magento forum an OpenSource code?
It is nothing like I have seen before.

Alot more simple that vbulliten, or phpBB.

Does anyone know if this is available, or if it is something that Magento has created exclusively for their site.

I like it alot!

The Magento community site is a heavily customized implementation of Expression Engine and some custom code. The forums are Expression Engine (with many hours of work put in).

I like this forum a lot.  It’s really simple and easy to use.  One feature I would love to see though is actual timestamps on each post.  I do like how it tells you how many minutes/hours/days etc ago the post was, but I would also like to see the exact date and time listed as well.

i personally find the forum rather buggy. sometimes when i log in i receive an error at the top of the page (then just disappears eventually). out of the box the EE forum search ability is absolutely terrible. i believe magento had to basically rewrite that portion in order to get what we see here now.

Hey Hello,

Thanks
ZMB

I don’t mind the forum software itself, In fact I am suprised with how far you’ve come to make EE usable, pretty and accessible. Further, I would like to say your team is doing a great job with the site face lift. As someone who visits the site all of the time I can’t help but applaud the subtle change to make the site feel more accessible and inviting.

Merry Christmas Roy,

tim.

Yeah I second this notion.
It would be great to have an ecommerce store run side by side with a forum out of the box.
It is a real pain trying to tie the two toghether sometimes.

just to back up what i said about forum bugs, every once in a while i get this error at the top of the browser window

Notice: Undefined index: keywords in /chroot/home/magentoc/svn-prod/backend/modules/forum/mod.forum_core.php on line 11163

and sometimes when i log in, i’m redirected to a completely different thread then the one i was currently viewing. seems kind of odd.
