Hi,
somehow I am missing (perhaps a module) for custom forum settings. Like custom profile settings except it would target forums. Any hints on this are wellcome.
Regards!

Could you elaborate on what you understand as "custom forum settings"?

Well, compared to user settings, I use quite a lot phorum_api_user_save, (get) for storing of different user data. I can think of several things that I would set by "phorum_api_forum_save". Template details (pecularites if you like) for instance, additional moderation rules, user instructions, forum dependant module data, etc. I have a user profile extension module where I can put all the user data in $PHORUM['user']['mod_profile_ext'] for every single user. Something like $PHORUM['forum'][....] seems a nice thing to have api supported environment.

ok, so you are talking about custom forum fields. These are implemented and working in current trunk which is going to be 5.3.

Could you direct me where to look for what's new on this on github?

It's not a single spot to point you on, but you could for example take a look at the forums API (especially phorum_api_forums_save()) and the custom field API (which is used to configure custom fields for the various Phorum entities). The custom field API is used by the admin interface for configuring custom fields, but can be used from module code as well to setup custom fields automatically (something that was done in a hacky way in 5.2 modules by directly modifying the related data structures; now it is safer by means of the new API).

Hi,
I checked your github after a while. It says something about Phorum 5.4 but there is no such branch yet, nor 5.3 either.
Any news on when 5.3 will be released?

Kind regards, Zdravko

If you are talking about the commit message, this is about php 5.4.
Phorum 5.3 is in master branch, there is no separate branch for that yet.
No news, currently phorum development is stalled, there are not enough developers left to actually drive it forward.
