Advanced Forum – a forum module for Drupal content management system.

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. While it doesn’t have all of the features of stand alone forum applications, being completely integrated into your site provides advantages that they don’t.
