My Thoughts on BBPResss
I was excited to find a wordpress forum that had good reviews and seemed the best solution after comparing a few.
I’m happy I was able to import my old PhpBB forum without much problems due to what I believe is an improved importer.
but I’m disappointed with 2 things:
1./ Lack of Support – check out this topic, not one reply as I waited for several days. In the end I had to do it myself on hope and lucky for me I puled it off. I hope this improves.
2./ Lack of dedicated Styles and themes. It was impossible to find anything like a normal forum from Invision, Vbulletin or PhpBB. There is nothing available that can make your forum look like those types of forums. There is one very basic template thing that does not do much but that is it from my many hours of research. Even the Themes section has nothing at all basically. I was expecting to find many dedicated BBPress themes. The good thing is most new themes will work with BBPress but they all look the same, simple with no organization etc.
Despite all this I am excited to have moved my PhpBB forum to wordpress and I can now make use of plugins etc.
I hope in the future BBPress improves these 2 issues.
