This could be much simpler for basic users…
I know BBpress is supposed to be very lightweight, but it is super confusing not having the basics like a “reply” link. Even if the link led to the bottom of the page. Not everyone knows to scroll to the bottom of the page to respond. At least responding at bottom is an extra feature that is on most message boards if you don’t want to use the separate page, but to start a new thread it at least needs a link that will scroll to bottom – if not it needs a link to an additional page. Way to confusing for my basic users. I have been holding off on using BBpress since this new built in version came out because of simple stuff like this.
These are just a few of the issues I’m having – I want people to actually use my forum if I add it to our site, and I can’t see people even being able to figure out what to do to use it – I know they want it!
I hope this makes sense. Other than that I think BBpress has a load of potential – just small things like this that make it seem useless right now. Maybe I’m missing something though. I didn’t have these issues with the old stand alone version.
