Projects / CGIForum


CGIForum is a highly configurable template-based discussion board. It supports expandable/collapsible threads of unlimited depth, name registration with password encryption, multiple sections from within a single script, previewing, searching, and marking of new entries. It also lets you specify date-ranges to limit the number of displayed entries. The included administration script lets you change, delete, and restore entries at any time.

          Release Notes: Two new config variables were introduced to generalize user registration. Registration can now be disallowed, and posting can be forbidden for unregistered users. Access can thus be restricted to a narrow user group.
