Forum absurd
By , for WP 3.7.1

I do not understand how you can compare to vbulletin bbPress or phpBB3.
If you feel like going crazy, installed bbPress.

No Japanese support, can't login to support
By , for WP 3.7.1

I wanted use bbPress to make a forum for Japanese users, but since the slugs are also in Japanese, this returns an error.

I wanted to join the forum to ask about this, but the bbPress forum doesn't recognize my WP login.

When I click the Contact Us link on their website, it takes me to .... the forum that I can't access.

Hey kids, how about you post an email address? You know, just in case somebody wants to contact you but has no other options?

bbPress not very good
By ,

I tried this plugin as an alternative to Mingle as Mingle doesn't have any import tools for other forums whereas this one does.

This plugin has them but it lacks functionality and leaves tables in the database when uninstalled. It adds several new user roles to WordPress that it also doesn't remove on uninstall.

The support forum doesn't answer questions about removing these roles from WordPress.

NOT RECOMMENDED look elsewhere.

UGH themes
By ,

I Switched from mingle, because downloading themes for mingle sucks.
It took me about 20 min to figure it out how to migrate the data from mingle to bbpress.

The Migration from mingle went well...

Now for the easy part... So I thought.

All I want to do is upload a theme be done. I don't want to have to go thru tons of out dated documents to figure out what to do. I don't want to have to change my custom theme, or code. I just want to upload a bbpress theme that has no sidebar and looks good and get on with my life.

this plugin is a farce
By ,

0 support and unusable, thanks to some really stupid design "decisions" by developers. Outdated doc.
Will probably work if you use standard themes for WP.

Struggling to get BBPress to work
By ,

and cannot log in to the BBPress support forums either.

I click Log In and nothing happens.

Regarding the software, I have set up a forum and a forum Page, but the permalinks send people back to the wrong URL and there is nothing there.

But I need to raise this with BBPress, but cannot access their support forums.

So about to give up and find an alternative solution.

What a piece of crap
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.
