I have something in mind since a few days now : I run a community site with a forum powered by PHPBB2, I hate PHPBB2, and I’m thinking about simply moving the forum from PHPBB2 to WordPress.
As I imagine it, it would be a separate WP install, forum categories would be post categories, forums replies would be migrated into post comments.
I’m thinking about this because I hate phpBB2’s overbloated features, lack of important ones (go handle serious spam with phpbb2. Good luck.), pluginless architecture, non PHP template files, etc…
I’ve had a look at some other forum software including bbPress but no one seem to satisfy me.
Now, what I’m asking is : does anyone think about a major reason not to do this ? I don’t see any, but well, before migrating 30.000 threads (assuming I’ll be able to) I’d rather be sure…
