Drupal is the best forum software

Why? Because it's the most complete, powerful and smart CMS that exists. If the itself CMS is good, the forum just need to dig a little bit to discover third-parties incredible modules.

Re: Drupal is the best forum software

Why the Drupal team does not provide a package that contains most used modules for a powerful Drupal Forum?

Re: Drupal is the best forum software

Probably because they did not have the time to do it... But it's a good idea.

There are however some good links:

http://drupal.org/handbook/modules/forum

But, it's for a manual installation...

Yes, it's generally needed to install it by hand. The "Profiles" feature is long to configure, and it's better to understand relationship between modules instead of having an all-in-one bundle that is supposed to work alone, but that generally doesn't.

Re: Drupal is the best forum software

I prefer ExpressionEngine as a CMS. It's the best for front-end designers who don't really do PHP. It also has forum software for a price. Since it costs $'s you get quick support from all of the staff.

Re: Drupal is the best forum software

Nice information, we should therefore think about reviewing the forum software embedded with ExpressionEngine. Thanks for pointing this.

I don't think so .. . It isn't believable. The true is they didn't want or didn't need to collect.
Perhaps in future .. .
