As part of the Mancomún project we need to use a forum with the next features:
- Anonymous users
- Captcha prevention
So I’ve been testing different TYPO3 extensions:
mm_forum: The most used and with community and recent activity. Only one problem not logged users can’t write posts.
chc_forum: Not updated since 2006. Without Captcha prevention. RSS feed is added with another extension.
wec_discussion: An active extension, but with a forum system quite simple and without BBCode support.
All of them miss some of the required features. After some tests I decided to use
chc_forum, mainly because we’ve already used it in a previous project and another extension already provides Captcha prevention, but it’s not working properly.
Finally, the result is:
- A new TYPO3 extension
chc_forum_captcha, based on
chc_forum_popupsource code, that adds Captcha prevention to
- A little patch for
chc_forum_feed, because it was not detecting the website protocol (HTTP or HTTPS).

Thank you for your TYPO3 contribution of captcha for chc_forum.
Have you other extensions?

yes we have more extensions published.
- gl_transstat: If you have a multilanguage website, I strongly recommend you to install this extension. It makes very easy create translations for pages and records. This extension is very useful.
- gl_pages_cat: Allows to relate pages with tt_news categories and filter tt_news plugins depending on page categories.
- tipafriend_captcha: Like chc_forum_captcha but for Tip-A-Friend extension.
Thanks for your comment,
