Forums for WP?

  • Hey all,

    Since bbpress is an unloved child (at best), I was wondering: Are there any alternatives? What forum software are you guys using, and how well do they integrate with wp?

    bbPress isn’t “an unloved child.” You’re using it right now. Clearly someone loves it.

    Honestly, I’d recommend using bbPress. There is an official bbPress plugin under development right now (too early to use, unfortunately), but this video will walk you through the integration process.

    Okay, thanks for your feedback. Of course using bbPress would be the “convenient” solution, if it worked well. I’d rather not get into a discussion of bbPress’ shortcomings and the problems I see with it in combination with WP. If it works for you guys, great, but it doesn’t suit me.

    So I’d still be very interested to hear whether there are any other options that users have successfully used.

    simple:press is the one I use

    Check out css-tricks.com I believe there’s a screencast about intergrating a forum in WP

    bbPress is good but 1.0.2 has many bugs right now.
