Why separate forums? (7 posts)

    Why have support forums in 2 places for bbpress - here and on bbpress.org?

    I think it wastes developers' time because they have to look in 2 places, and it confuses users who don't always know where to post/read...

    Because bbPress was only (relatively) recently released as a plugin. Prior to that it was a standalone application.

    So...historical reasons....

    Well, in that case, there may be a case for a merger here...

    True. Same for the plugins. Plugins for bbPress 2 are found in the WordPress plugin directory. They should archive the old plugin directory.

    historical reasons

    Not just historical. Many people are still using the standalone version of bbPress. For them, the correct place to ask for help would be the bbPress forums.

    I see. In that case probably they should split the support. Here for the WP plugin, on bbpress.org forums for legacy (standalone) support.
