I just tested Ninjaboard v1.0 alpha2 today.
I noticed that this component requires MySQLi instead of MySQL. Why MySQLi? If I switch to MySQLi, is there any bad affection to Joomla and other 3rd party extensions?
In this test, I created a new menuitem for NinjaBoard then try to visit that menu at frontend as a guest, but I got a warning message saying: You don't have permission to visit the forum.
why ninjaboard can't work out of box? Why refuse the guest to see the forum index page by default?
I think, at least we should allow guests see the forum index page in the default settings.
