Support » Everything else WordPress » Looking for a BBS software

  • Resolved pflanzenoma



    though of rather advanced age it seems that I’ll be the owner of a BBS. Using Computers for about 40 years I’ve always been only user of Newsgroups, BBSs and Forums.
    At the moment I’m looking for an appropriate Forum software. bbpress is one of the pre-installed ones on our server and would make not too much work for our admin, who is a friend and does that as a friendly turn. But I do not know if bbpress is suitable for a plant forum.
    The most important special feature of a plant forum is showing pictures. Picture upload (limited to a number) and automatic resizing is absolutely necessary.
    As the community for exotic plants is very small at the moment, no pay-ware can be used.

    If there is a bbPress Forum in German language I’d prefer to discuss my questions there.

    Thank you

    I generally recommend bbPress, it’s what we’re using here, so I can’t be of much help with other recommendations.

    There is no bbPress support forum in German, but there is a WordPress support forum in German where you may find some answers:

    There’s also of course a bbPress support forum in English:

    Hello James,
    thank you for your answer. Probably my question was not clear. In the meantime I found out that the wished feature exists: Imsanity. So I’ll go on with bbPress.
