How to have forums in my redmine?

Added by vitaly endors almost 4 years ago

I love the software!
Now I must ask, how can I have a forums section within my local redmine?
Is it an option, or is it needed that I install bbforum or something?

Thank you Felix,
I logged in as admin, saw no options for this.

I created a project, enabled all features... the option is there.
But I cannot see any boards/forums regardless of who I log in as.
Then I enabled all features for all users, including anonymous....
But there is no "boards" or "forums"...

If redmine website runs on latest, should I not have master forums?
More and more I think I must learn ruby to use this project. :)

Ok, thank you for the hints, I figured it out... a little.

1. You must go into each project and enable forums [or boards, the name is not consistent]
2. Then you must go into admin and create some board topics.
3. Only then can you see the way to create threads.
Also, you must enable access for different types (anonymous/logged in/developers/etc)

I love this software, but the documentation is weak.
Because of this, it is our little secret!
