This action will allow your Wikka installation to have a Message Board.
Before you even try using the script you will need to have the following table inside your wikka mysql database :
CREATE TABLE `wikka_suggestions` (
    `id` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
    `title` VARCHAR( 200 ) NOT NULL ,
    `postby` VARCHAR( 100 ) NOT NULL ,
    `time` DATETIME NOT NULL ,
    `status` ENUM( 'I', 'R', 'P' ) NOT NULL ,
    `content` TEXT NOT NULL ,
    `parent` INT UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL ,
    PRIMARY KEY ( `id` ) ,
    INDEX ( `title` )
) COMMENT = 'suggestions table for the Wikka ...';


After this is done you will also need the /Wikka/actions/msgboard.php with the following contents:

<?php

            @description:   This actions provides a suggestions feature to your Wikka.
                            It is allowing for replying, deleting, status management and reviewing of posted suggestions.
                        To use it you will need the following table inside your MySQL database:
                        CREATE TABLE `suggestions` (
                            `id` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
                            `title` VARCHAR( 200 ) NOT NULL ,
                            `postby` VARCHAR( 100 ) NOT NULL ,
                            `time` DATETIME NOT NULL ,
                            `status` ENUM( 'I', 'R', 'P' ) NOT NULL ,
                            `content` TEXT NOT NULL ,
                            `parent` INT UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL ,
                            PRIMARY KEY ( `id` ) ,
                            INDEX ( `title` )
                        ) COMMENT = 'suggestions table for the Wikka ...';
        @usage:         insert {{suggestions}} any where in a wakka page.      
        NickDamoulakis: Actually, it is meant to be   {{msgboard}}

Final Note

This is my Gift to the Wikka development to enable these wonderfull people behind Wikka to manage the Suggestions they receive ...
Happy New Year to All ;)

Suggestions, Modifications as well as comments are most welcome ...

Happy New Year to all!
- See my comment below for the missing "create entry function" I added a little bit to the code above. It should be possible now to add new topics if there are none
- I added a ".$this->config["table_prefix"]." to the first query
- changing the status of a topic does not work with mod_rewrite
- I like this modification very much :) --NilsLindenberg
