great forum and simple set up
By , for WP 3.5.2

just disapointing when searching to publishing the first new post :)
It would be nice to put the New forum button more visible (in the admin area)

Very nice, simple forum! I'd recommend this .. just one thing
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is very simple to set up and it's indeed lightweight. Pretty good yslow scores, etc. ... And I like the overall aesthetics.

Now, for the final thing -- this could be a 6 star plugin if we could find a way to include Facebook / Twitter login / registration capabilities.

I recommend this over BBpress or whatever it's called and WPBB, which has Facebook integration but nobody can get it to work and the support author doesn't reply to anything anymore.

Great work authors, and if you ever have plans to integrate Facebook/Twitter login & registration, I'd love to know about it!

I have spent ages trying to find a decent solution for our forums, have tried all the other offerings and found problems with each. Mingle does exactly what I need, loads quickly and looks awesome too.

Excellent software for forum
By , for WP 3.5.1

I use this on our cycling club forum and it has all the tools necessary for an informal club. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a simple to use forum tool that easily integrates with WordPress.

Forgot the most important SEO point!
By ,


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!

Simple and Powerful

Complexity does not guarantee excellence in all cases! This plugin, although simple and easy to use, but have the most majority of features needed for basic to moderate forums.

Simple & Easy to use forum
By , for WP 3.4.2

I use Mingle Forum on all 16 of my Blogs. It's the easiest forum to install, and setup. Although it could do with a few new features as it's a bit behind the likes of vBulletin, and I'd like to see a better YouTube embedded links. Hopefully the developers will see these recommendations and make a few changes very soon. Thanks, Tech News365.

Oh, and hyperlinks show the full URL link, can you make them so they only show some text, with the link embedded.

I'd recommend installing a few additional wp-plugins for security too. I use the following:

1. Bad Behavious
3. Secure WordPress
