Ive been doing some research on integrating a forum for an entire network of sites, Ideally so they have it on their menu if you switch to their blogs... This will be a social networking site so I had been using buddypress as well since as far as I can see its the only real option for that aspect of wordpress.
Is that possible? and if so which forum setup would you recommend. so far Ive seen simplepress and bbpress but no one seems to give conclusive posts on what is and isint possible with either.
