Works great so far
By , for WP 3.5.1

I installed this forum earlier today and had no problems what so ever installing it. It really was a clean and smooth install and just as easy as installing any other plugin in WordPress.

I had one issue when creating new users, but I watched this video and it walked me right through it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t66BST_kU6g

So far the only thing that keeps Mingle Forum from getting 5 stars is that it's pretty difficult to change the skin. This really has to be a lot easier in my opinion.
But other than that it's really great and easy to use.

Forgot the most important SEO point!
By ,

Hi,

The developpers of this plugin forgot the most important point of the internet, page titles!
Each post does not have a single page title, therefore Google will hate it!
Shame..it was such good forum...

Great Forum Software
By , for WP 3.4.2

One of if not the best WP forums out there, and with version 1.1.x Mingle definitely positions itself as the most full featured WP forum wit the lightest footprint and easiest install. Base theme is great and the themes available for download are also very solid.

Thank you so much @cartpauj for your work!

Can't create new posts
By , for WP 3.4.2

I set up the forum and thought everything was moving along great until I realized you cannot create a post in the forum. There is no way to allow a user to post anything in a forum...

...kind of defeats the purpose, right?

Works great, but could use some improvement and support
By , for WP 3.4.2

I've been using mingle for about two years now. It's easy to set up, and easy to use. I don't think it's being seriously supported much any more, though I do occasionally get an update.

My only complaint is the comment windows. Users don't have a Preview, and they can't easily make they're comments look nicer with HTML buttons. IS this because of security that html is not included?

Anyway, it is a great plugin if you want forums. I've not had anything break. I did have a conflict with Jetpack, and had to remove Jetpack and use a different stats plugin.

I do recommend Mingle, and hope the developer continues to develop it and add features.

Didn't work
By , for WP 3.4.2

Good integration with WP but the forum itself doesn't work - can't post new topics, threads, comments... Incomplete & inefficient backend for moderators, requires manual input of all new users. Nice idea but needs much work to be viable.

Harika Bir Eklenti...
By , for WP 3.5.1

Eklenti çok güzel. Ama bazı sorunları var. Mesela; resim eklediğinizde resim yazınızın en altında çıkıyor. Üstte çıksa daha güzel olurdu. Bir diğer önemli sorun ise; kod eklemek istediğiniz zaman bunu aktif edememesi. Bunlara rağmen güzel bir eklenti.

Would be good, but . . .
By , for WP 3.4.2

The Mingle Forum plugin seems to offer a decent set of features and I would like to use it, but there is a conflict between Mingle Forums and Jetpack's Share module that causes the forums to display multiple times on a single page. This is a deal breaker for me as I need my twitter sharing. If not for this, I'd give Mingle a 4 or 5 star rating.

The author claims it's the fault of Jetpack and there is nothing he can do about it, but Simple Press doesn't have this issue. I am not sure what the reality of the situation is. Regardless, if you don't need to use JetPack then Mingle seems to be a good forum plugin. If you do, then you should probably look elsewhere for your forums solution. (And don't do Simple Press unless you are willing to fork out some cash for support.)
