Create a flat file forum


#1

Hi,
I want to set up a website using Kirby.
My website includes a discussion forum, is this something I can setup using Kirby cms?
Is this forum built using Kirby?
Thanks for any help
David

No, this forum uses Discourse.

It is possible to build a forum using Kirby, but if this makes sense or not depends on the features you need and your development skills. It’s probably better to use an existing forum solution.

Before we started with this forum, we used one built on top of Kirby. The code for the old forum is still available in the getkirby.com repo.
