If you’ve ever used other forums software, or especially if you’ve deployed other forums software, it becomes very clear after you install bbpress that this plugin is basic, and clunky. An awful lot of what would be considered standard functionality in forums software simply isn’t present, or if it is, is awkward and clunky to use.
Having said that, it is the best forums plugin I am aware of for WordPress, perhaps the only one, and it is FOSS, so hurrah for that, and it mostly does the job. There are also plugins available for it that extend it’s functionality and add features which almost put it on a par with other forums software, but even with those, not quite.
