Hello

I am fairly new here. I run a large online community which is based on Discourse. In comparison, the forum software used here feels really clunky and, I feel, is not really fun to use. I realize the integration with the CMS is good, and I used to see that as a priority as well (once had a WP + bbPress setup, which was a aughful forum SW). My view these days is that it is more important to have best in breed products rather than the tightest possible CMS integration. Of course, these are just my 5c. I am now running WP + Discourse, and the setup works really well for us.

In case the admins for this site are playing with idea of moving to Discourse, I am happy to share my experience in migrating to and running a Discourse based community.

Ok, I get you don't like the idea :-)
Just for understanding, what do you mean by "own software"?

We are talking about Discourse, the open source discussion software based on Ruby
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourse_(software)
In what setup/environment are you running Discourse?

What is limesurvey.org/forum missing the most?

The meaning of the word "stable" for users

Just to name a few from a users point of view (I can imagine there are many more from a mod/admin perspective):

Responsiveness
Speed
Onebox renedering of linked content
Mark text to create a quoted reply, ease of quoting in general
Keep editor open while browsing other posts/topics/pm
Live search, and search functionality in general
etc

It's just a question of polish and a generational one, I guess. Discourse is a modern js app, while Kunena is built the way forum software was built 10+ years ago. In other words, it's hard to just argument from a functionality perspective. I wasn't missing any functionality back in my Word Perfect days, but wouldn't go back to it after being accustomed to O365 or even the latest Libre Office. The same way I would not go back to phpBB, which we used before.

Anyhow, it is not my intention to start a forum software discussion war. I was just offering to share my experience in case Discourse was on the map. I run a 5K member 200K posts self-hosted Discourse forum, loosely integrated with a Wordpress site. We are currently integrating LimeSurvey hooked up to Metabase for analytics.
