PLEASE Create 2 Versions of bbpress!
I LOVE bbpress…..
I LOVE wordpress…..
I am really disappointed that bbpress integration with wordpress was broken at wordpress version 2.6 and has yet to be put back into bbpress.
In fact, bbpress intigration with wordpress wont be back until bbpress version 1.0 which is not due for some time.
on one of my websites:
i currently run the 1.0-alpha, because i need wordpress 2.7.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I am extremely disappointed that wordpress and bbpress are from the same company (Automattic), but they are not joined at the hip like I thought, they are more like completely independent and might as well not be made from the same company.
bbpress is an excellent product on its own, but the integration with wordpress is simply embarrassing.
So, this what I think should be done:
Create 2 versions of bbpress.
1) a standalone version already in existance
2) a wordpress plugin (installed from within wordpress) that has the same functionality as bbpress. The bbpress admin would reside within wordpress itself. This would make bbpress instantly integrated with wordpress.
Having 2 versions would increase the number of users of bbpress and make it a lot easier and simpler for non-technical users to integrate bbpress with wordpress.
Please consider this. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
