In northern Michigan a few weeks ago, we visited Fort Mackinac, the first American fort to surrender to the British in the War of 1812. We were treated to the following animatronic display, repeated every 45 seconds or so:

Drupal forums showdown: phpBB, vBulletin, UIE
Everyone seems to agree that the forums built-in to Drupal suck, as forum software goes. As I write this in July 2007, there are 3 options for getting better forums integrated with Drupal.

Option 1: The phpBB module for drupal.

Pros: - phpBB is a high quality forum package.
- has lots of mods and themes available to customize the forum.
- widespread use means some users will be familiar with it.

Cons: - Module is complicated to install and maintain.
- Hacking required to make the forum pages look the same as the drupal pages.

Option 2: vbDrupal is a fork of drupal that has ported it on top of a vBulletin base.

Pros: - vBulletin is an excellent forum package.
- has lots of mods available to customize the forum.
- widespread use means some users will be familiar with it.

Cons: - vBulletin license costs $160 US
- License terms require "Copyright 2000 - 2007, Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd." on the bottom of forum pages.
- vbDrupal is a branch away from the main drupal development tree.

Option 3: The UIE forum module for drupal.

Pros: - More integrated with drupal.

Cons: - Not an established forum. Unknown quality and it seems to be just 1 guy working on it.


None of these 3 options make it so the search field in drupal pages also search the forums. Google could do this for you if everything's on the same domain, and apparently drupal has some hooks to make this easy.

Looking forward, the DruBB group is planning to improve the default forums in drupal. They've got their work cut out for them.

This research was done for a community/forum website I am helping setup. More info on that in the future.

Going Green
Last night, I went to a Just for Laughs show called "The Green Room", where headliners get interviewed casually. I lucked out- for my $18, I got to see Lewis Black, Billy Connolly, Eddie Izzard, and Louis C.K.. And when Eddie Izzard got tired and had to make a phone call (?!), Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald subbed in.
