Learning Curve Too Large
I admire the idea of bbpress … I really do. After several hours of work, I’ve finally got a forum up and running on my site. There is so much more work to be done to make it usable for my visitors, though, that I just don’t think I can do it. Every installation has been a struggle for me. I don’t know php. The config file took me an entire day to get right. Each and every plugin I installed required further tinkering.
Here’s a small example that represents my large frustration:
Allowed markup: a blockquote br code em strong ul ol li.
Put code in between
That’s not enough information for me. I can’t make that work. I’d have to read the forums, once again, to figure out what you mean. And I’m just too exhausted to do that, so I’m going to install another forum for now.
I’ll keep checking back to see the improvements that you make and, when you get everything worked out and as easy to use as WordPress, I’ll try again.
But, for now, installing bbpress requires too large a learning curve for me.
Good luck and carry on,
C.R. the Exhausted
