Hi all - we're working with a client that is looking for a solution to provide listserv and forum capabilities combined in the same experience. Some examples of this include the way that Basecamp or Teamwork handle messaging, where you can initiate forum threads but also select individual recipients to receive an email notification as well based on group permissions or other role/group factors.
There are open source solutions outside of the SilverStripe and PHP world like GroupServer. However, it would be a bigger pain to integrate those with a SilverStripe site than to extend the forum module.
1. Has anyone encountered or developer a solution like this that would be interested in collaborating on this project and extending the existing forum module in the process?
2. If the answer to #1 is yes, can you share a link or get in touch so that I could review what you've developed to be sure its a fit for this project?
Thanks in advance!
