Projects / jzForum


jzForum is a simple forum system based on the jZonic framework that supports multiple forums and RSS feeds for forums, categories, and threads. User and rights management is integrated. It is very easy to install because it uses hypersonic as a database, although it can be used with different databases. The look and feel can easily be changed using CSS. It currently supports user, moderator, and admin roles with a defined set of permissions.
