A Django forum engine for building powerful community driven websites.

Project description

Django-machina is a forum framework for Django providing a way to build community-driven websites. It offers a full-featured yet very extensible forum solution:

  • Topic and post editing

  • Forums tree management

  • Per-forum permissions

  • Anonymous posting

  • Polls and attachments

  • Moderation and pre-moderation

  • Forum conversations search

Django-machina was built with integration in mind: the application is designed to be used inside existing Django applications. It is not a standalone forum solution.

Django-machina was built with customization and extensibility in mind: each single functionality of the application can be customized or overriden to accommodate with your needs.


Online browsable documentation is available at
