    This forum plugin definitely helps to create vibrant, active communities. It allows my members to post guided discussions in specific categories. In addition, it organizes threads very well, and makes them easily searchable.

    One reason this plugin is valuable to you…
    Most communication about content happens via comments, (like Facebook). These comments are simply a list, with no specific organization. With the possibility of many comments on a single post, information can get lost in the clutter. Also, with a comment system it is difficult to have a back-and-forth conversation with another member.

    The beauty of this plugin is it utilizes nested quotes that allow users to interact with one another. I strongly feel the combination of the SE script and the socialengineaddons forum plugin works very well together. Of course there are sooooo many other features it has and it is well designed, however I feel anything that creates more engagement with site members should be weighed heavily.

    Engagement is the name of the game my friend and this plugin really gets the job done. This plugin brings so much value to your site. Not to mention it is created by Socialengineaddons the most trusted development team on the socialengine platform. It will work for you and your members I say GET IT!!!

    This Advanced Forum Plugin knocks the stock forums provided by SocialEngine right out the park. It's loaded with tons of great features. I love the layout...I love the design...I love the user dashboard and there's so much more. I can't believe this is priced at only $49. This is practically a giveaway.

    Get this plugin if you're looking for a modernized forum experience. I highly recommend it...

    Best Regards

    Now THIS is what a forum should look like. Before installing this plugin the SE Forums, in my opinion were a waste of space. This plugin gives it the look and feel of a professional forum with all the perks. GREAT JOB SEAO!

    I call it next gen forum; Socialengineaddons seems to be a generation ahead of the rest not only in their plugins but in their support as well. Advanced Forums Plugin is a great addition to any socialengine platform it not only looks good to have a place of subject & discussion for your community members it is a necessity if you want to have an engaging community.

    With Advanced Forums Plugin, your members will enjoy their dashboard it is full of options for the community members as well as the administrators. Your members will also enjoy using Advanced Forums Plugin they will be able to: Like, give thanks to the writer of topics. In addition, your members will be able to comment on the topic or reply to the topic the options for the user are endless, Socialengineaddons has worked very hard to give what Socialengine platform owners what they need to advance into the next Gen of social media. Socialengineaddons products are all so priced responsibly that is good news to the owner of socialengine platforms.

    I recommend Socialengineaddons Advanced Forum to anyone that wants to be a generation ahead of the rest. All so to give your members the best social media experience as possible.

    You will not be disappointed

    We have not been using the core plugin from SE as a forum in the past as it lacked too many features other forum software usually has (e.g. bulletinboard). The new advanced forum from SEaddons has us covered now. There are so many new and useful functionalities on board, it is awesome.
    As always with this developer the plugin is nicely coded and works like a charm. Best support in the industry.
    We are a long time customer and wil always recommend their plugins.
