Skidmore Community Discussion Forums Get a Facelift
This summer we have upgraded our discussion forum software to phpBB, a widely used Open Source solution. Both Fusetalk and Phorum discussion applications will be decommissioned, consolidating all forum activity (other than that managed within Blackboard) into one streamlined interface.
phpBB provides a much friendlier user interface, easier forum moderation and administration, and get this, you will actually be able to delete your community forum posts! When you post something for rent or for sale, you can remove that post at your own choosing. What a concept!
Community forums include a range of topics: General Discussion, Career Services, For Sale, Housing, and Ride Share. If you’ve never taken a look at Skidmore Community Forums, we encourage you to take a look at phpBB. Additional forums can be added at your request by submitting a Help Desk ticket. You will find a variety of links to “Forums” throughout the Skidmore website, however the url is http://www.skidmore.edu/forums.
