Matching bbPress Forum Plugin?

Question

Posted · Report post

Does anyone here (or this site?) use bbPress? I prefer phpBB but it has been hell to work with for integration.

I'm thinking about it, but I was concerned about the hassle of hacking the theme to match.

I suspect this forum is bbPress, and I also am very interested in integrating it into a site.

I just installed it and it seems to be easier to style than phpBB. I may have lost all the old phpBB posts but I think this option is easier to admin and possibly safer. ! Where can I get a WHPro theme for bbPress now?

Ok, so here's the lowdown. We are launching forum addons for each of the three themes. It will be based in BBPress and will function much like this forum. We will launch it starting with iBlogPro next week, and then launch in the following weeks with WhiteHousePro and StationPro. The forum plugin fit perfectly into your theme and fully integrate with your WP users :) You can get it for $50 with PayPal. As customers, your input would be great. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts :) If you have specific questions please email/contact us directly.

Great! This is very good news! Will buy it to evaluate, for sure!

Well, if it fits in perfectly with WHPro, its worth a buy. The look of this forum, though, is nice... but I don't think it'll scale to a LOT of uses and topics. Please make sure you take into account the need to be able to easily locate/navigate a lot of topics and users. WP.org does this quite well, so if you keep that in mind, you've got a no-brainer add-on. One other note: $50 for the add-on seems somewhat steep, but you make up for it by your helpful support on these boards. There've been a few places I was somewhat annoyed by flaws in WHPro, but your responsiveness here has made me feel good about the purchase (when you're doing a nonprofit, every purchase needs justifying). What I'm saying is these boards and your responsiveness is the value add that makes your product quite worthwhile.

I think I have mine integrated now but I need to make the forums header and look match the WP WHPro pages.

I cant wait for this forum plug in! I hate the current plugin I have so have put the forum on the back burner till the new theme is done and $50 is a bargain works out like ??28 for me which is well about as much as a meal out for one. so my girlfriend will just have to go without eating next time we go out to make up :-)
