Nice but ...
It is nice module if you need a quick and simple forum.
But there are in my view few enhancements to be done:
1/ conversation history on REPLY page:
we should be able to see the conversation on the REPLY page. It is too hard to reply to a topic just remembering the previous posts
2/ more classes for CSS in HTML code
It is difficult to modify the looking of the forum because it lacks of CSS classes: many tables and no id or class.
It is very important to add a global DIV with a unique class name that must embe the whole extension code. At the moment, there are several tables and div put inside the "main" magento div. And their class or id change depending on the forum page you are (edit, view topic, view forum).
3/ Not responsive, not good for phone
Because of the lack of css classes, it is difficult to make it work on mobile.
Beside that, the extension is working perfectly.

I looked into phpBB which is great on it's own, but getting it integrated with Magento wasn't the easiest task.
I wanted a forum which fit in well with my Magento store. This extension was perfect and worth every penny. Easy to install and it uses my custom theme very well.

Works like we hoped it would. Easy install. Only one error message and the developer got back to us in under an hour to help us clear it up! Great support. Cheers

Really good forum extension
I would highly recommended to use this extension. It has most of functionality which you need for a decent forum. Also, the developer is really supportive, he helped me out from installation to production phase. Even he replied me on weekends as well. I think it worth spending money on this extension.

DOESN'T SUPPORT MULTI STORE VIEWS!! If you are not aware and configured everything, you will be forced to upgrade to advanced version which is $100 more. Very sneaky this way.

i bought this forum and installed it on my magento 1.6 fresh install. did it like described in the instructions, dont know why it is not possible with magento-connect?? i killed my shopsystem 2 times. after my opinion it would be to expensive if it would be for free... keep far away from this extension.

I purchased this extension. I was disappointed not to be able to insert poster's "quote" in my post reply. Unless I'm missing something?

We have bought the Advanced forum and cannot express how much webideaonline have helped us, if you want a forum on magento then this is it. We run into a few problems but all were rectified within half an hour :) These guys are one of the better DEVS and are committed to customer satisfaction. I would recommend this to anyone :)
