Discussion forum? (6 posts)

    I'd like to have a discussion forum where there are general topics in place, but then visitors can start their own threads beneath those topics. Is that possible with WordPress?

    Not with WordPress directly, but there is bbPress (still in dev) .. or you can try any of the other fourm software out there. If you want integration with WP, you may be better off with bbPress (written by the same people) or phpBB... there's been a few successful attempts at linking them up.

    If you're looking for an integration with a forum, the portal/cms that I help develop will be releasing an integration for WordPress within the next week that will coincide with our next version release. The integration is done, but there are a few minor code tweaks to our existing codebase that were needed to better accommodate other scripts. We'll also be releasing a Coppermine and Gallery2 integration at the same time.

    This integration has been written so that users of either the portal, or wordpress can benefit and keep their members. You would get forums, downloads, pages, and all kinds of gadgets and gizmo's to play with.

    You can have wordpress as your main site, or the portal, or both.

    Seems I've given the same answer a few times already in other topics, so hopefully the mods here won't think I'm trying to spam. If you've noticed, I haven't posted the link to our site yet. We'll save that for a new thread when it's actually released in a few days. ;)

    Might look into XDForum, a plugin solution for WordPress:

    Yup, beat me to it.... xdforum is lightweight, fairly customizable, doesn't have the tons-of-useless-features-glut of other possibles, and uses the native wp auth and registration builtins.

    I use it and like it. In fact, I migrated a couple of phpbb fora to it. I can't justify the stupidity endemic in phpbb any more.
