that is it
No longer supported afaics. Not updated for a year.
This plugin no longer works and admin is not answering any question. S/he has not been active for over a year now. People like the idea but frustrated with admin not answering why this is not working. check my site [Redacted] and you will see. Click on "forums" and you will only see blank page.
Lots of bugs - few major ones, yet the developer is no longer responding to questions here. Apparently he stopped replying months ago. What a waste of my time - time spent installing and configuring.
And the developer has stopped answering questions.
I'd rate this plugin a solid four (four-and-a-half if half-stars were available!) if its Facebook integration didn't appear so buggy: quite a lot of folks can't get it to work no matter what.
Otherwise, this is a nicely simple and clean forums plugin. Would definitely pay for a premium version!
I tried three other forums, including Vanilla Forums, which requires installation through your webhost as well as through WordPress. This one blows the others out of the water in terms of ease and clarity of use. It actually -- incredibly -- takes into account the fact that not every WordPress user is a professional developer! Amazing, I know. It's dashboard documentation is thoughtful, complete, and totally clear and helpful. The appearance takes on some of your site's style, so it integrates beautifully. The setup and tools make all issues of permission and so forth super clear and easy. It has a great maintenance mode you can toggle on.
Ditch any other forum you've tried and install this one. You won't be sorry.
I installed the WPBB forum after trying another which was far too confusing and didn't fit seamlessly within my website.
The WPBB plugin has been easy to setup. There have been a few tweeks so far to get it working as required, but nothing major and so far everything I have wanted to achieve has been relatively easy to solve.
Don't waste your time with any other forum. This is the one you have been looking for.
This plug-in failed to communicate the length of its virtual page to the WP Theme, resulting in the theme footer overlapping one of the messages on the WPBB plug-in. There was no response from the Plug-in author, so I had to move on and use another plug-in. I wish someone had warned me of this before I wasted my time on this plug-in.
