Coffee, Conversation And ZUBB
Want to add a little interactivity to your Zope portal? Take a look at ZUBB, the modestly-named Zope Ultimate Bulletin Board.

| On The Board |

First of all, what the heck is ZUBB?

In the words of its author, ZUBB, or the Zope Ultimate Bulletin Board, is "...a threaded discussion board based on ZDiscussion and UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board)." It provides a simple, user-friendly discussion board for portal members, and includes support for features like message posting and replying, message threading, and subject/body search.

In order to get started with ZUBB, you'll need a working Zope installation (I'm currently running Zope 2.5.0) and a copy of the latest release (currently version 0.7.1) of the package; you can download a copy from http://www.zope.org/Members/BwanaZulia/ZUBB/

Installation is simply a matter of copying the package files to the appropriate location, and importing the ZUBB package into Zope. Copy the source archive to your Zope installation's root directory and unzip/untar it. You will see that this archive contains the following files:

''.preg_replace(array('/  /', '/ /'), array('  ', '   '), '

Of these, the first five files should get installed to the <Zope>/lib/python/Products/ZDBase/ directory, while the last should get installed to the <Zope>/import/ directory.

Once that's done, restart Zope and go to the Product Management section of the Zope Control Panel. You should see ZDBase in the list of installed Products.

You now need to import the "ZDiscussions.zexp" package into Zope. Hit the Import button on the Product Management screen, and enter the filename "ZDiscussions.zexp" in the "Import filename" field of the resulting form.

Zope should now import the package and return you to the main Product Management screen.

Make sure that the file is in the <Zope>/import directory of your Zope installation before performing the step above.

Once the package has been successfully imported, it will show up in the list of installed Products in the Zope management interface.

You can now begin using ZDiscussions on your site.
