Nice and simple

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.

Nice, but lacks documentation
By , for WP 3.7.1

The forum seems to be functioning nice, but the setup process was rather hard when there's a lack of easy accessible documentation. The homepage of this plugin has several missing pages and all in all it was just a mess trying to integrate it with my site.

Things are starting to shape up now though, but it has not been a seamless process.

I'm Happy
By , for WP 3.6.1

I don't think you can complain when this plugin is free, I've been trying it on my membership site NicheProfitClassroom site so I can see if the forum concept works at all.

Great free forum option

Not as powerful as other paid-for alternatives, but ti does it's job well. It's still not the best solution for large companies that need lots of moderation capabilities.
