Support » Plugin: wpForo Forum » Good if you can avoid the add-ons continued yearly cost.

  • Sadly it’s another case of the add-ons work. You are limited to do anything from embedding content to just adding a custom field to your users profiles unless you dish out the premium money every year.

    The problem is the contract agreement.
    You get one year of updates and 1 year of basic support and 1 month of premium support then you must buy it again. I understand the support being cut off but if you have 3+ add-ons this adds up if you get stuck with outdated add-ons.

    With the average $25 price mark

    3 addons = $75 a year

    I am not sure if this is USD but if you live outside USA you are looking at it being a lot rougher. For example if you are Canadian that would be $98.18 (current exchange rate)

    If you don’t mind the premium add-ons not being included than it’s a good customizable forum that won’t cost anything. If you don’t want to shell out money towards updated add-ons every year that give the forum features stay clear.

    Hi @crackmasterk,
    Thank you for your review and thank you that you understand how good and feature-rich is wpForo even without addons. You don’t need any addon to use wpForo. It has dozens of times more functions and features than other forum plugins. And it’s free. You’re getting the most powerful forum plugin for WordPress for free.

    Please don’t write wrong information here. Addons are separate plugins, and are developed for extra features, they are not the wpForo plugin. wpForo is a free plugin. In any case if you want to buy addons, you’re getting lots of discounts. There is no $75 price for 3 addons, they’ll be automatically discounted according to our Sale Packs (20%, 30%, 40%, 50%).

    And please follow to these information to be informed about current WordPress plugins world. I seems you’re not familiar with the plugin market.

    1. Almost all popular and professional plugins have either PRO version or Paid addons.
    2. Almost all popular and professional plugins PRO versions and addons licenses are only available for one year. This is normal, and this is everywhere. Only developer licenses or bundle licenses can be for lifetime.
    3. Almost all popular and professional plugins PRO versions or addons cost more than $35. wpForo addons the most cheapest addons comparing with other large and popular plugins. All large plugin addons prices start from $35 to $150, not from $11 to $35 like wpForo.
    4. And please never review a good plugin based on addons, pro versions or other paid services. wpForo plugin is a free plugin with almost all necessary functions and features you need to create an amazing forum. So we’ve already created a product with $5000 (as an individual project) price totally free for you. If you want to make some donation you can buy one addon. So you should understand what addons are created for. Unfortunately we got 1* review instead of a small donation to our hard work. Thank you for being a good wpForo user!

    Don’t put links in reviews. That’s been abused too much in the past.

    I’m leaving this review in place but closing it. It is feedback, the author replied and that’s all there is to it. Pro conversations aren’t for these forums and this being closed for that reason.
