Easiest forum to integrate with WP 2.5.1? Tried a few but not working. (6 posts)

    Hi everyone :)

    Well so far I have tried to integrate simplepress, bbpress, vanilla, smf and phpbb and each time I get fatal errors even when I follow the installations to the letter. BBpress is the forum I really want to use but even this is causing problems.

    Are there any forums that integrate easily with wordpress that I haven't heard about?

    All I want is that my users/members on WP don't have to sign in again to visit or post in the forum.

    Any help most gratefully received!

    Thanks :)

    BBPress is the only one I know of to totally support this.

    That's why I wanted to use BBPress more than the rest (my female logic thought if they were written by the same people they should work together) but it just went all screwy. Could it be because I am using WP 2.5.1?

    Thanks for replying :)

    Nope. It works fine with 2.5.1.

    You really should try the bbpress forums instead. They know more about this sort of thing:

    The problem I had with bbpress forums is that you can't set member groups and rights. So everyone can just come in and see everything. Unless there was something I was missing.

    I opted for a separate forum solution as well, since a dedicated forum script is always going to offer a bit more control over extra options. Just a personal opinion: whilst I like the interface of bbpress, it does seem to be more geared towards the 'advanced programming' community than typical IPB, phpBB, vB and MyBB solutions.
