Project goals

  • Improve accessibility of the Moodle Forums
  • Make the forums more modern in appearance
  • Make the code in the forums module more manageable
  • Make it possible for themers and developers to over ride aspects of the forum layout easily

Considerations

  • Backwards compatibility
  • Creating sub-plugins for "Forum Types" (Q&A etc) and "Forum Formats"
  • Subscription management
  • Editor Light - a cut down version of Atto for "Reply inline"
  • Make use of Renderables and Renders

Details

At present the Moodle forums are the oldest part of the code base, and lag behind the rest of Moodle in a big way.

We hope to implement a new interface for the forums, based on the accessible view from MoodleRooms' HSU Forum, and add some new functionality over time.
