Caused ALL kinds of problems; DELETED!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Installed it as BuddyPress Groups Forum (because BuddyPress no longer has its own and points to BBPress).

I immediately found I could no longer get to the Plugins page - I got "An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums".

Forums tab did not appear on WP dashboard
When I tried to access Groups Forums from BuddyPress I could, for a while, then it stopped working.

Looked for support on BBPress website and found out that other people had the same problem but hadn't got any support, so I ditched it, uninstalled it and the site is now working fine.

Piece of cr@p!

Going back to installing a dedicated MyBB BBS on my server!

Works well for me, has most of the features I'd expect, a bit difficult to get it work nicely with my theme, but probably fixable via CSS

So Far, So Good, BUT...
By , for WP 3.9.1

05/11/2014 @10:30 pm - Good evening. This probably isn't the place to ask a question, but... So far, BBPress is working fine, but I have 2 questions. First and foremost, HOW can I increase the font size, it's too small for pre-geriatric ladies to read. The rest of my themes are normal size, but when it comes to the forum pages, they are way too small. Secondly, I want to do an introductory page for the forum, with the topics listed. Do I need to change themes or shouldn't this be possible everywhere? At the moment, I'm using the JustWrite theme.

To answer the question specifically, BBPress is actually pretty good. I'm old enough to remember the bulletin board programs that were out before the Internet went commercial; they were a lot harder than this! So, kudos to the authors. However, please answer the questions at your earliest convenience. I have one week before summer school begins... God Bless.
