Forums events

The Forums module exposes a number of events for its data items. They are organized in a hierarchy of interfaces. We recommend that you use the interfaces to subscribe for the events and not the specific classes. By using parent interfaces, you can subscribe to all child events. However, you lose the specific typed data which gets passed to your event handler as an argument. This is why we recommend using the most specific interfaces (those that don't have child interfaces, but are directly implemented by classes). This is the full event interface hierarchy for the Forums module.
