I am looking for a plug & play type forum application that can be used in my site. My site is built on rails 1.2.3, Googling on open source ror forum ends in apps built on latest rails 2.+ versions(like Beast)
Does anyone know abt such app built using Rails 1.2.3?
I've been working with Rails since before 1.2.3 and I cannot recall any packaged forums. Although that was back in the days of the "old Rails engines" so you might have some luck with that... but I doubt you'll find anything.
Unless it is completely impossible I would recommend upgrading your app to 2.3.4
Thanks for your response Brian.
how good would it be to use Wordpress blog with built in forum plugins(bbPress), could this be considered as an alternative?
( I need this forum app for limited period/audience... say for 1-2 months, so a light weight app with minimal feature will do )
