bbPress vs. Simple:Press, WP-Forum, other forum plugins
I’m looking for a good forum plugin for WordPress, and bbPress seems like a good choice. The main thing I like about bbPress is its simplicity. Dead-simple to use, with no confusing toolbars to intimidate users. However, aside from installing numerous plugins, it lacks many of the basic features of a forum. In my view, if I’m spending more effort to get something to work as well as another solution, I’ll go with the alternative.
The forum will only be used for basic discussion, so advanced functionality is not needed, but its helpful and attractive to include a few anyway. Keeping it easy and intuitive yet functional for first-time forum users is key.
Right now I’m leaning towards bbPress, but do you have any additional suggestions?
