Hola everyone. First things first, Phorum is looking promising for my needs...doesn't have the sheer size of others like phpBB/myBB, which is important for me when developing a highly customized forum since hacking the core is always tedious and potentially troublesome.

Alas, I don't see much activity on GitHub...a few stars and forks, a pull request, and about 100 issues filed. Do you guys do your development stuff on a private repository/server? Are pull requests reviewed at all, or is this software still actively maintained?

Just trying to gauge where you guys are at and what the best way to contribute core code is before I fork and hack away :)

Please see []

At the moment there is no development going on beside critical fixes.
We can't see in the future though.

Hmm, I suspect the devs just got busy and have other obligations to fill. Life moves on, and it can be hard to keep at it all these years. Maybe someday, maybe not, but whatever choice is made, I for one am really glad that they are keeping this site running. I too have used bloatware and really like the size of Phorum and appreciate all the work done on it.

And yes, we are still reviewing pull requests and accept them if it makes sense ;).

Hi Mike,

before I fork and hack away :)

There is no need to fork because of the module system of Phorum. Try to develop modules for your individual needs.


Using Phorum since 7/2000: (actual version 5.2.23)
Modules "Made in Germany" for version 5.2: Author_as_Sender, CarCost, Close_Topic, Conceal_Message_Timestamp,
Format_Email, Index_Structure, Mailing_List, Pervasive_Forum, Spritmonitor, Terms_of_Service and German_Language_Files_Package.
