RForum on Rails 2.x


#1

Hi! Has anyone tried to/ is running RForum on Rails 2.x?

At least as deployed to Ruby Forum, it seems super fast with multiple
forums, has good follow-up features (e-mail), a decent messaging system
between users, very decent anti-spam features and a whole host of nice
things - it does seem to be one of the most feature-complete Rails-based
forums.

Now, looking around shows that it was last updated date at the end of
2005 - that’s the only downside. If I’m to use it for a site that we’d
like to keep alive for a year or more, it would be good to know if it’s
working with Rails 2.x - I guess the main worry is that hosts will
eventually upgrade to Ruby 1.8.7 (or newer) and that will break the
older Rails and that would break the RForum.

So, coming back to the question - has anyone tried to/ is running RForum
on Rails 2.x?

Thanks! All inputs deeply appreciated.

Cheers,
Mohit.

Anyone? Or is everyone using Beast (Savage/ Altered) or El Dorado for
their forum needs?
