Considering Switching From Phpbb – Ease of Plugin Intallation
I’m not a website developer. I’m just a user of WP for two sites. I have a third site that I had a developer set up which is a forum and it is run with phpbb (he said this is what I should use).
What frustrates me is the huge DIFFICULTY in installing a “mod.” I don’t want to have to contact my web developer to install a mod every time I need one. That’s why ALL my websites (except this forum one) are run on wordpress – I can install/change just about anything on it myself within seconds.
What I’m wondering is, if I switch to bbpress is the installation of plugins just like wordpress? I don’t have any problem with that because it’s just click on a couple of buttons. Phpbb on the other hand, requires me to edit files and write code for a “mod” installation. It’s time-consuming and drives me nuts.
My forum is http://www.ForumJudo.com if that matters to your recommendations. I just basically want a site where users can send/receive private messages, vote on posts, post video/audio files, start topics, mods can delete posts & ban users, etc., and possibly a chat feature in the future.
I just know that phpbb is too difficult to install “mods.” I don’t want to learn code.
Thanks for any advice on this!
