Reviews

Useful. Be careful with the “Remove bbpress css style from all pages except…”

I really appreciate the ability to manage subscriptions and customize bbPress message text.
I ticked “Remove bbpress css style from all pages except forum pages.” under Extras, and most of my site pages returned 404s. The home page, which is built with Page Builder, still loaded fine. Unticking the box and uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin seems to be working.

Simple

Easy to use and does what it should out of the box.

very nice

added tons of dirty hacks, before i found this easy plugin.
