Release notes

ForumNG
=======

Copyright 2016 The Open University


This is an alternative forum that you can install into standard Moodle.

It does not replace the standard forum, and operates alongside it.
You can copy forums from the standard forum into ForumNG format if you like
(...and if it works; this hasn't been tested lately).

Support:

Bug reports:

https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-mod_forumng

Status:

Please note that this code is tested on OU systems but we rely on the
community for testing on other systems.

Requires:

Moodle 3.0+
Postgres / MySQL

Install:

Place the contents of this source tree into your Moodle installation so that
within your Moodle root, this file is mod/forumng/README. Then visit the
Moodle notifications page to install.

If you want the forums to be searchable, you also need to install the
local_ousearch plugin. (It is best to do this before using ForumNG much,
otherwise it takes ages to install as it builds indexes for everything.)
When you install the ousearch plugin, a search box will automatically appear.

Documentation:

None.
