bbPress is forum software, made the WordPress way
This plugin saved me. Use the links on multiple sites, this plugin is essential for me. Thanks!
I'm currently running bbPress 2.3 RC1 and I must say that it's like night and day from the version I used only 6 months ago. It now integrates perfectly with WordPress, BuddyPress, and my themes. Looking forward to the final release (and whatever comes next)!
It's really nice and WP like. But when I try to post shordcodes in a forum, o forum description, it doesn't display the result. For example, I inserted a Slideshow from this plugin, but it only displays code like [slideshow id=7], and now the expected.
It works fine with my theme and other plugins, thanks :-)
Great solution for my client!
Horrible documentation, no straightforward way to modify and integrate with your theme, and every support article is 2 years old and doesn't apply. That's 2 hours I'm not going to get back.
In the past I was hating most forums softwares, They are very buggy and not really clean, not enough code docs and not ordered in good way...etc
I tested vBulletin and phpBB and I didn't like them at all, after using bbPress it is the most plugin I recommended for the customers they want an efficient and powerful forums.
I am a programmer and bbPress make my life easier :)
I will do my best to give more support to bbPress.
There should be the facility of replies to the published topics, for all the visitors of the site, such that they need not be logged in to post replies.
Instead, they can reply freely. Their replies will be held for moderation and when the user of the site sees that the reply is good it will be approved.
IS there any such facility available with this forum...?
Building a forum is no small task. The history of bbPress is rich with stories but ever since it became a WordPress plugin instead of a separate install, working with it has been nothing short of fantastic. Not only is it a fantastic plugin to use, but it's (in my opinion) equivalent to a fantastic textbook about writing a WordPress plugin. Fantastic piece of software. With the team behind bbPress I wouldn't waste time looking into anything else to power a forum on my site.
For 8 years I had managed a site running a blog based on MT 3.2 and phpBB 2.x/3.x and the security and maintenance of these two alone was constantly annoying and complex.
Thus I picked WordPress as the replacement for the MT blog and were also looking for an option to replace the phpBB forum. I bump into bbPress which had at that time just become a plugin for WordPress and I found it could do ~95% of what my forum users would need.
Now I'm helping out moderating http://bbpress.org, helping out others where I can, writing custom filters and plugins for WordPress and bbPress and contributing back to the bbPress core project making bbPress better with every new version.
I didn't set out to learn PHP with any of the goals above, though I am now albeit at my own casual pace and this is in no doubt because of the excellent code that is bbPress and by proxy @JJJ's ability to write great documentation alongside the core code.
