Getting Started
  1. Forum Page: wpForo creates a page with /community/ slug. If this slug is used you’ll have /community-2/ or /community-3/ slug. You can find the correct one in Forums > Settings > General Tab. Make sure you use WordPress permalinks. wpForo doesn’t work with default ?p=1 URL structure.

Reviews

Great support

Solid forum. For some features you need payable add-ons, but it is fair. The support forum really makes an effort. Same day problem solving. Great support, it is making the difference.

Excellent

Super plugin, très rapide et simple à utiliser!
Manque encore 2 ou 3 options, mais elles vont arriver

Great Plugin, excellent support

I am not much of a web developer and I have tried several forum plugins until I finally found this gem. The installation and setup of this plugin was super easy (even for me) and when a problem with one of the paid addons occurred, the developers really took their time to find the issue and guide me step by step to the solution. That is customer service at its best!

Мечта для занятого человека – форум WPFR!

Несколько лет ранее до июня 2017 года мой сайт был на Drupal, это был какой то ад… Теперь же все работает как часы, обновляется, переводиться, я даже сам участвовал немного в переводе плагина WPFORO для себя и других! Делай перевод для себя и делаешь для всех! Вот что объединяет WPFR!
Очень благодарен Тому, Мартину из группы разработчиков за техническую поддержку, причем пишу им по русски, ребята большой Вам поклон!
Оценка 5, это сказать ничего, я очень всем доволен!
Хотелось бы некоторых мелочей, как День Рождения в профиле, и Мартин обещал мне в письме. А то не знаешь когда у наших форумчан день рождения, этой информацией делятся все в отличие от других личных данных.
И конечно по SEO нужно как то продвигать тему, не секрет что топовые места в поисковиках Яндекс и Гугл занимают форумы созданные вручную или сильно видоизмененный код имеющие, сокращенно где все и вся.
Так же поиск по файлам в папке файлов хорошо бы поле сделать и по числу сортировку и по имени например очень нужно.
Ещё раз я очень признателен за ваш труд.
Всем советую кто не имеет времени плагин форум WPFORO. Да, и нужно поставить будет платные аддоны, ничего не тормозит, все работает быстро.
Спасибо! WPFR Мечта!

Лажа!

Полный отстой! Я не против платных аддонов, но как можно было сделать платной, да и ещё за неадекватную стоимость, такую базовую функцию, как приватные сообщения?!
