Just disable the Forum module. Your alternative Forum won't have login info passed to it, so it will be literally 'stand alone'. The newest release (pretty far out still, as I understand it) is supposed to be able to 'bridge' some of the more popular Forums.

The only forum function in Your Account that I am aware of is the profile picture upload. Private Message is a stand alone module that works with forums disabled.

Well, RN is based upon 7.6 patched so why not go with an active project with already 10000's of security, bug, compliance updates? The changes would be very similar.

You can run the current RN version without installing Forums. I've done it for my wife's website. But you need to hack some of the core code to do so ... even the installer looks for Forums in some places. I didn't write down all the details but it can be done. At the same time, if you aren't pretty familiar with the code, it can't be done and even if you are it is a trial and error thing.

I thought we disengaged the forums, entirely, in RN2.4?

If you look at the setup.php in the /INSTALLATION directory you will see that we still make explicit reference to the bbconfig table ... and the program will die if there are SQL errors with updating it. If forums were truly optional we wouldn't be doing this or at least we'd be checking to see if the admin wanted to install forums. This kind of stuff is still embedded throughout the code I'm afraid. That's why I said that if you aren't pretty familiar with the code it (meaning installing without forums) can't be done.

Look at lines 219 and following in the current setup file.
