Discussion Forum ASP.NET Project


Discussion forum is simply a place where people can ask questions, answer the questions, and share information and queries. The proposed online discussion forum, developed using ASP.NET and C#.NET, provides a platform for sharing ideas and information on different topics and help users get relevant info/solution for problems related to technology, education, science, programming, etc.

In the given link, you’ll find three different projects – all titled “Discussion Forum“. All these are developed using ASP.NET. You can download the source code and project abstract of these projects from the link below.

Discussion Forum ASP.NET Project

There are many web forums on the internet that are available for free and premium service. Most of these are developed using PHP and HTML languages, so here we have presented web-based discussion forum applications developed using ASP.NET.

All the forums work like the typical discussion forums you see on the web. They allow users to add threads or queries, reply to existing threads, and search for threads using keywords. Some common tasks such as user registration, password recovery and profile change are the salient features of project 2.

Project 1 has admin features and user features. The admin form or module allows admins to view options at the back-end, change application settings, and add options to the forum. They can perform other tasks such as add categories and sub-categories, delete reported data and threads, change password, update profile, view user profiles, view posts and comments on the forum, etc.

Compared to the admin module, the features provided to the users are limited. They can simply register, add new thread, reply to existing threads, view existing threads, update their profile details, view other user’s profiles, etc.

After installing the project, admin can add features to the forum by logging in from the back end. They can then perform the tasks briefed above. The project is very flexible as admin can easily change settings and edit code of the forum according to the requirements that suit the forum.

In case of users, they are required to register into the system by filling up an application. They can then view posts and start creating threads. Admins will monitor the threads and comments created by users and either accept or reject them.
