Excellent solution
By , for WP 3.9.2

For me, this is exactly what I was looking for. I run a simple HOA web site and I wanted to have the ability for the board of directors to maintain a small blog, but also have some forums for the homeowners to communicate with the board, between themselves, and discuss different things. However, I would like to keep the forums (topics and posts) from being seen when a user is not logged in. I give a four-star rating because it missed one of my needs. Keep up the awesome work!

So Far, So Good, BUT...
By , for WP 3.9.1

05/11/2014 @10:30 pm - Good evening. This probably isn't the place to ask a question, but... So far, BBPress is working fine, but I have 2 questions. First and foremost, HOW can I increase the font size, it's too small for pre-geriatric ladies to read. The rest of my themes are normal size, but when it comes to the forum pages, they are way too small. Secondly, I want to do an introductory page for the forum, with the topics listed. Do I need to change themes or shouldn't this be possible everywhere? At the moment, I'm using the JustWrite theme.

To answer the question specifically, BBPress is actually pretty good. I'm old enough to remember the bulletin board programs that were out before the Internet went commercial; they were a lot harder than this! So, kudos to the authors. However, please answer the questions at your earliest convenience. I have one week before summer school begins... God Bless.

Great!

Nice plugin. I hope their support will be able to answer the user's questions.

Nice, but lacks documentation
By , for WP 3.7.1

The forum seems to be functioning nice, but the setup process was rather hard when there's a lack of easy accessible documentation. The homepage of this plugin has several missing pages and all in all it was just a mess trying to integrate it with my site.

Things are starting to shape up now though, but it has not been a seamless process.

Good alternative to PhpBB forums

The easiest way to install a forum on your wordpress blog :)

Great free forum option

Not as powerful as other paid-for alternatives, but ti does it's job well. It's still not the best solution for large companies that need lots of moderation capabilities.

good stuff
