Kagora is a Web forum system, written in Perl, using a MySQL database backend. New features in the current release include the ability to search for messages by poster or by specified words in the subject, the ability to display mesages in flat mode (sorted by date, notthread) in user and moderator interfaces, and the ability to use HTML markup in forum descriptions. A crontab is also provided to remove the oldest messages. The Kagora system allows direct (messages appear as soon as they're posted) as well as moderated (messages need to be previously approved by a moderator). One of the design goals of Kagora is to provide a powerful tool to moderators. Forums appear to the user in three frames: a menu (used for navigation), a list of messages, and a frame for displaying messages and posting new messages. Forums are associated to skins for customization. In addition, all messages produced by the system are grouped in a separate module, and the program has support for many languages.
