Development of a discussion board

I am new to Salesforce.I want to buid a discussion forum like the one what we have for  Salesforce community site.I found ideas object to be nearest to the discussion board.But it does not have features like comment threading(comment on comment).And also I want to remove the feature of rating for Ideas object.Is there a way where I can clone the ideas object add extend the object to meet my needs.

The Idea object is a Standard Object, just like Account, Contact, etc. With that said, you cannot clone Standard Objects, but you can customize and extend them. For instance, you can add new fields to the Idea object and create a Visualforce page to represent a UI that works for your needs.


Hope that helps,


There is a discussion forum download on the appexchange that you can try.
