I run a small private site that requires login for all...
I installed bbpress on my site and it works fine. BUT, it doesn't have the ability for people to include attachments in their posts. BUT, OTOH, it has a nifty plugin that notifies members of new posts, which is huge.
I have been looking at simple:press as an alternative in that it does have a plugin that will allow attachments, but I can't find anything like the notifier.
I'm looking for info from anyone who has used both and the pros and cons of each.
