Which forum for WP integration ? (7 posts)

    I’m looking for a forum, for a non profit association website using WP.

    Ok, this request is neither new nor original.

    But what I need is a forum really integrated with WP. By really integrated I mean :

    - Sharing the same user base (one registration, one login)
    - Integrated in the design (somehow the forum might be displayed as a “page” in wp)

    For some mysterious reasons, BBpress a very nice WP little brother doesn’t fit these two basic requirements. It fits the first (same user base) but not the second one (real integration inside WP)

    Any idea about the software that would meet these two requirements ?

    Thanks in advance

    is there a free forum plugin compatible with WP 2.6?

  6. bbPress is the most common one for integration with WordPress.

    thanks that looks pretty good. i will try it. i didn't realize that it was designed as a thread based system. i want something where users can post new threads in different topics and get replies. Wikipedia makes bbPress look like a bad choice. but after looking at some examples like at http://www.retrogarden.co.uk/forum/ it looks like bbPress does threads.
