about programming

Post by jeter630 » Wed Mar 16, 2011 3:13 am

Is it possible to create a forum using joomla?

Also can I create a username and password system?

Does joomla support a credit card payment system or paypal system?

Thanks in advance for your help!

In future, please try and post in the 'most' appropriate forum, this really has nothing to do with performance and you will get a better response in the right forum.

To answer your questions,

Yes, you can use Joomla! as a Forum framework, by installing one of the Forum components found in the Extensions Directory (link at the top of this page)

Yes, Joomla! already contains a user management system, plus there are some alternatives that can extend that built-in functionality.

Joomla! it's self does have any built-in e-Commerce functions, however there are many, many different extensions you can install to provide access to payment gateways depending on your needs.
