We're starting the process of migrating to AEM, working with an implementation partner to get up and running. As a side project, we're trying to determine how to add the functionality of a typical discussion board/community forum to the new AEM site. At first we thought it would be easy, using the Adobe Communities product as an add-on to AEM. Unfortunately, it seems Adobe is no longer offering that product to new customers. 

 

So... what are some viable options? Are the Adobe Communities features now built-in to AEM? Or is a third-party solution or custom development the only choice? Any advice or suggestion is greatly appreciated!

The Communities module exists, but it's no longer available for sale. It looks like Adobe is planning to retire it.

In the past, there was a Communities module for this purpose.

You need to research if this still exists.

OK, let's reset here.

 

We've established that the Adobe Communities module for AEM is no longer available to new customers. 

 

My question is this: What is a good alternative? In other words, if we can't use Adobe Communities because we're a new customer and they won't sell it to us, what solution (third-party or otherwise) would provide us with basic discussion board functionality?
