This plugin - my first - allows you to have simple forums on your site. Forums are saved in xml files.

It's my first plugin ever, and it's a quick and dirty adaptation of the forum made by Philipp Lenssen.

<fc #ff0000>WARNING</fc> This plugin use XPath v.3.3 So, it's not compatible with php 5.

The version 3.5 is compatible with php 5, but not with the plugin.

Features :

  • No login
  • Valid XHTML
  • Choice of hierarchical or plane forum

Todo :

  • Admin module
  • Localization
  • Management of messages

You can use it as a forum (!) or as Guestbook, or even as way to permit comments in a page.

To use :

  • Unzip file in your plugins rep.
  • Create a directory “forum” in the root dir.
  • Create a XML file in this directory, and write in this file :

<?xml version=“1.0”?>

<posts archive=“true”>


  • insert in the site the function :

#CMSimple $output.= forum(“FileName”, answers(optionnal));#

With FileName = name of the file

and the optional answers = true | false (default to true) to permit a hierarchical forum or only a simple messageboard (kinda Guestbook).

By the way, sorry for my english (I'm french)…
