Forum Integration

LibCrowds integrates with the forum software, Flarum, by enabling links to a particular forum topic from the main navigation bar of each collection microsite. We also pull in a summary of recent forum posts and add it to the collection microsite's homepage, hopefully making the site seem more alive and encouraging participation.
