Default Asp forum


How forum is implemented in ASP? Should we use third party tool?

Your previous post asked a question about ASP.NET in an ASP forum.

Now you are asking about an ASP forum. But is that *REALLY* what you want???? Or do you want an ASP[u].NET</u> forum???

Do you understand the DIFFERENCE between ASP and ASP.NET??

Quite frankly, I haven't found any forums written in ASP that are worth while. But there are a couple in ASP.NET that are. And free or cheap.

Have you ever looked at the ASP code for Snitz??

It's enough to make a strong man weep.

It's ancient and creaky and nobody really needs a new ASP forum today, but it's just CRYING for somebody to rewrite it from the ground up and make it about half the size and four times as efficient. *sigh*

The best that can be said is that it works (obviously). Just proves that code doesn't have to be well written to succeed in the world.

FWIW, we've really liked Snitz here. We've also spent a lot of time tweaking it to fit our needs.
That said, our Snitz version of these forums launched 5 years ago and we needed something simple enough that one guy could launch it in no time. If we were restarting the forums today, Snitz probably wouldn't be our choice.

Don't get me wrong. Snitz was undoubtedly "best in class" 5 years ago--and is still probably 1st or 2nd in ASP forums today. And it certainly has all the features that most people want. So it's nothing to do with what is presented to the world. Just that the code *inside* is a big inefficient jumble. Anyway, clearly the price for Snitz is right. It's kept a lot of people from reinventing the wheel.

We are, as some people know, in the process of migrating to a new forum platform. Our choice was driven by using a current framework, which ruled out classsic ASP, and forum software that had a really enthusiastic user base with a big choice of add-ons.

Will look forward to it!

Are you revealing which one you will use??

I tried installing Community Server and was very disappointed in it, but not so much because of the forum as because of other features.

Soon I'll post a little about our choice and the factors that influenced it.
