Originally created for my Coulee Region forums, Advanced Forum builds on and enhances Drupal’s core forum module. When used in combination with other Drupal contributed modules, many of which are automatically used by Advanced Forum, you can achieve much of what stand alone software provides. Because it uses the core forum module, it uses the node and comment system built into Drupal and is completely integrated, not a bridge.

More Styles for Advanced Forum, compatible with the current 6.1.x release. Created by Rufzeichen Webdesign.Advanced Forum is a great module. Over Time, Michelle has built a nice theme layer, and it is completely pluggable. So Styles (or say forum themes) can be kept completely seperate from Advanced forum, yet via a hook they show up in the style selector. Just install Advanced Forum, then install Advanced Forum More Styles, switch on the style, done!I am planning to add more styles over time. For now only one is contained, named “Minimal”. I have not found a better name but will. Tested with Garland and some other themes. Still issues will arise in some Themes providing styling that may not be properly overridden. Put the issues into the issue queue, I’ll try to put in overrides so that the themes look pretty much the same in every base Theme.There is only one color used: a blue bar for Containers and Thread lists. To match the style to your theme you should not have to do more than override this color.
This module changes your forum administration page to allow you to set forums private. You can control what user roles can view, edit, delete, and post to each forum. You can also give each forum a list of users who have administrative access on that forum (AKA moderators).
Author Pane is a block of information about a given user, like those typically found on a forum post, but can be used in other places as well. From core, it collects the user picture, name, join date, online status, contact link, and profile information. In addition, any module or theme can feed it more information via the preprocess system. All of this information is then gathered and displayed using a template file.Advanced Forum and Advanced Profile Kit will use Author Pane automatically. It can also be used independently of those modules by making use of the provided block, the theme function, or the panels integration. See the documentation for more details.Warning! Author Pane 2.x will not work with Advanced Forum 1.1 and below. AF 1.2 will work with either version when it is released.
