Can anyone recommend a forum plugin that works well with Pagelines?  I need to get it up and running ASAP.  I don't need bells and whistles, just the ability to have a couple of forum topics going at one time.  

Thanks!

There is the Vanilla integration available with PageLines Framework Developer, but if you don't have Developer, you may need to search for a solution on the WP plugin directory: http://wordpress.org...rch.php?q=forum

Thank you.  I looked at a number of different forum plugins and I might give "Mingle" a try.  It looks very lightweight and easy to deploy.   Plus it is free.  

 

I don't have "Developer" as my level of sophistication is limited to writing css and I only have one website (right now).

 

Thanks again.

Hi,

 

BuddyPress and bbPress are both free as are the integration plugins.  While it's time consuming, this applies to any product used for forums.  Vanilla itself is free.  As you've selected Mingle, I'll mark this topic resolved.
