Thinking about using bbPress – some questions
Hi, I’m thinking about converting a vBulletin forum over to bbPress and have a few questions I hope someone can help with.
1 – Are there any anti-spam measures on sign-up? (I just had to enter an email address to register here)
2 – Do you have to have wordpress already installed? (I was thinking of testing bbPress by itself first)
3 – When you have wordpress installed, can it load in ‘latest posts from the forum’ in wordpress pages? Such as on category listing pages or actual blog posts.
4 – Is bbPress server efficient? vB has always been good on that front.
5 – Is it easy to customise? The style I will want to port over is at http://www.gameslurp.com
6 – Does bbPress track unread/new posts? So any new posts can be shown in bold on the forum listing page if they contain new posts since the last visit/page refresh?
Think that’s it for now – any input from people who have converted a vB forum would be great appreciated too.
