Create forum-like blog

Quick tutorial about how to make your EZG blog into a pretty good forum.



Few notices


  • Although it's not clear at the beginning of the video, every time new View is added. 
  • My layouts were in other language at first, so in the video you will notice few text changes, but in the uploaded files all should be English-labeled.
  • If you add category and subcategories, and then add posts to subcategories only, it won't let you click the main category on the front page. You must have at least one post in the main category too.
  • The "write psot +" button allows you to write to a different category, but it will pre-select the current one automatically.
  • The styles and the layour are very basic and definitely not for production. I highly recommend altering all the views and the frontpage to something that will fit your site.
  • In the fron page template css (vertical TEMPLATE button -> bottom (css) tab) there is a bit of a code that handles the front-page categories listing. Use/alter/remove this to make your categories list looks appropriate.


I used presets here, but you can instead use these: Forum modules archive

Unzip the archive into a new folder. There are 4 modules inside the archive:

  • frontpage
  • post
  • cat(egory)
  • search

Each of the modules has 3 files. For the impot you need the "rfv" files.

Just right-click -> Extra -> Import and select the proper file.

Grouping Multibox links in posts.

Since v4.0.0.507 new setting for the blog is added: Grouping of Multibox.

Enabled by default (to keep previous blog multibox handling), this option can be found in the Online Administration section of the blog, Settings tab.

When this is enabled, all element that have multibox and are from the same type * will be grouped into same box with navigation to loop among them.

When this is disabled, every multibox element will pop-up in separate box and no navigation among the other similar elements will be possible.


*Different types of multibox elements (image thumbnails, pure links, etc) are grouped separately from each other by the multibox handler. In other words - you can put both thumbnail and a link into same box and navigate through them.
