Was good more or less, but now it has disappeared
By , for WP 3.6.1

It strikes me bad when some developer just shuts down and disappears.

Not information to the users, not a single word.

I would NEVER trust Mingle forum again.

No Support/New Users Can't Log-in
By , for WP 3.5.2

Worked fine at first but for the last couple of months new users can't log-in. Tested it myself. Once created, entered the new log-in info and it just continues to say password is incorrect. Information is correct so what gives?

If someone would help it would be appreciated but since no one replies from support and new users can't use this it's basically useless, have wasted time in the forum for the last year and have to give it the lowest rating.

Can't create new post & awful support
By , for WP 3.5.1

While I can set user groups and forum topic headings easily. When it came to actually writing a posting, I could NOT figure out how. Nice! So, I can have topic headings but no content? Maybe I'm missing something, but it really shouldn't be this difficult. Also, I found no help in the videos - the videos must not be up to date because what they showed on their screens looked NOTHING like what I see on mine. Absolute disappointment! I'm switching to bbPress instead.

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?

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.

Bugs, bugs, bugs
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin would be nice, if it would run as it should.

If you let your users post at the forum without registration but captcha, no admin can edit posts anymore and if you activate posting with registration you cannot edit posts because you´ve not enough rights...

=> deadlock
