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!

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.
