Community Forums is a simple and elegant solution for creating a place where users can explore and discuss ideas. It is a great tool for creating and sharing knowledge across your entire organization. Opening up discussions within your organization helps you not only gather feedback and insight from people intimately connected to the discussion, but also aids in developing a professional, stronger social community. With the ability to add forums and sub-forums, you can create any structure for forums that enables your organization to start talking.
Community Forums uses the existing Confluence architecture and saves topics as Confluence pages. You'll be able to access the conversations created and see the knowledge shared within your forums, whilst enjoying all the usual benefits of Confluence pages such as:
The latest Community Forums version 2.x has seen the product undertake significant changes and improvements. These changes provide new and improved features that make forums feel at home in any Confluence, whether you want to create topics about general discussions or customize the look of forums. The new search, sort and filters mean that you can easily find topics, whilst other forum features help users identify hot, ongoing, important, new, pinned or closed down topics to name a few.
The latest release version is compatible with Confluence versions 5.7 - 6.3.x
Confluence version 5.6 is unsupported after Community Forums 2.7.1. This was done to support new features only available in later Confluence versions.
Community Forums now works for DataCentre from Confluence 5.8.5 onwards. There was a bug with the Lucene sort mapper that was fixed in Confluence 5.8.5 which means Community Forums will again work correctly on DataCentre. Note, this will not work for Confluence versions 5.6-5.8.4
