Software Recommendation

Threaded View


I was hoping someone could recommend some off the shelf software that
meets the following requirements:

Basically I need a system that is like a forum (phpbb) but that can
support file attachments. I dont really want to do the heavy patching
that phpbb requires.

Is there a simpler solution?
Had a look at some groupware solutions, but they are far too much for
what I need.

It must be a PHP/MySQL solution.

Thanks for any pointers.

Conceptually, is this a file system that allows comments on the files?  or
is this a discussion board where people *sometimes* add files?

Are you looking for some kind of Web design project managment software?  Try
ActiveCollab: /

You can create projects with threaded messages and attach files to messages.
It's similar to Basecamp but free and open-source.

Also, try Drupal 5.  Enable the forum module (included) and set the access
control to allow authenticated users to upload files.  Very easy to setup. /
