First Forumzilla Release!

Friday September 15th, 2000

Tony Jordan writes, "We wanted to let everone know that we have released a new Mozilla application called ForumZilla. This is a newsgroup like web-based forum reader that lets you read sites like MozillaZine, for example, in a mail/news type format. In fact, MozillaZine is the first forum to support ForumZilla. Go here for the press release or just go here to install it and tell us what you think!"

After installing Forumzilla and restarting, the app will appear in your Tasks menu. Click it, and when the Forumzilla window comes up, choose Subscribe from the App menu. For now, choose one of the two forums from the dropdown list. If you subscribe to the MozillaZine forum, you can then browse and reply to our forums using Forumzilla.

Forumzilla is an extremely cool implementation of Mozilla's XUL technology (and RDF as well). Definitely check it out when you get the chance.

If you have a forum system and want use forumzilla, you have to: 1) add link to your site which will start forumzilla; 2) add code to your system which will generate .rdf file; 3) change code to store messages into individual files [if you code does not do that already]. If you do not have forum system, then you should design and implement some mechanism for those without forumzilla access. Isn't this a redesign?

The same applies to XUL in general.
