I'm looking for a really high quality Forum that will allow sub-categories & not put things into groups etc like Buddypress/bbpress does/did. (I haven't checked Buddypress/bbpress in the last year, so I'm not sure if they've changed things or not, but I did NOT like it at all when trying to use it before.
I've been told that there is a plugin to integrate phpBB into WordPress.
But upon researching this I also found http://simple-press.com/
Does anyone have experience with one or the other or both?
I want to incorporate 3 different things equally into one site and have it as seamless for the user as possible as far as navigating & login/account stuff etc. It would also be nice when styling the main website that the forums would take on the CSS as well - is this possible?
1) General website with photos, articles, other various content etc.
2) GOOD quality Forum along the line of BBphp that can be customized with sub categories - is BBphp forum able to be incorporated into Zencart? It really seems to have the best setup & customization for forums. The Forums is a very important aspect of the website so it must be very good.
3) Store/E-Commerce section
