Discussion Forum web parts

  Asked By: Alma    Date: Nov 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 37629

Was wondering if anyone came across a Discussion Forum web part.
Tried using the discussion thread on the documents, but finds that
it's too cumbersome and doesnt serve my company's needs. I need
something like the format that is being currently used by this forum.
Would really appreciate it if anyone could enlighten me...

You could use Sharepoint Team Services Discussion Threads and embed it in a
Web Parts.

This is what I used for my company and it works great

Here is an easy way to do it

Team Service Site
1. In a Team Service site, create a new Discussion Board
2. Customize to match your need
3. Locate the view you want to publish in Portal Server for instance
4. Edit this view with FrontPage 2002, and delete all the content you don't
want to show, like top toolbar and side navbar
5. Edit all the other dependant pages to remove extra navigation like
6. Make sure users permissions is set for the team site

Portal Server
1. Create a new web  part with HTML content
2. In the link properties, paste
3. Click isolate content
4. Adjust height and width

You're done. We did this successfully for publishing Calendar, list and
other valuable information

They might be more fancy way to do it using VB Script and CAML that will
give you more control but this works pretty well.

But only problem is i only have
Sharepoint Portal Server and no Sharepoint Team Services. Does anyone
know where we can download this web  part from?

This web  part assume you have Sharepoint Team Services. If you don't it is
included in Frontpage 2002 and has no licensing requirements other than a
vlid license of Frontpage XP or Office XP
