How to integrate a forum with my Joomla 1.0.x site?
The bridge components for Joomla 1.0.x rarely work properly, and even when they do, an upgrade of one of the two integrated applications will almost certainly break the overall functionality of your website.
This is why the best solution for Joomla 1.0.x is to use a stand-alone forum component. The most popular forum component for Joomla 1.0.x is FireBoard. It is installed as any other Joomla component and it offers all features that you would expect from a forum application.
Joomla is a powerful software that is easy to work with once you have the right host to support you. Before you lose any more time with the wrong host, check out the SiteGround Joomla hosting offer.
