There are some issues with this plugin and Simple Press Forum (http://simplepressforum.com/)if the forum page is set as Frontpage of the blog.
I got this advise in their forums;
...possibility of him making updates to his plugin that allows the front page to optionally take arguments for display like all of the other fields on his settings page. Currently, he only allows plain text. Perhaps he could make the change for allowing dynamic content (and thus titles) on the home page instead of fixed text.
Is anything along these lines possible? Does it make sense to you?
