    Hi

    I am using phpBB 2 with 2300 users

    I was okay for a while with that forum… I want to change and update… not sure I do like the phpBB3 tough, so I did a little search. Even tough I am using WP on my article side of site, I am not sure that bbPress is the best choice for me

    What forum would be a good choice for

    - 2300 user

    - french or english

    - send PM

    - RSS

    - Forums and sub-forums

    - need to be able to “embed” a youtube video when members are posting

    - Profiles

    - Avatars and signatures

    I use this to try to help me

  • I would give bbPress a try, it’s easy to design your own layout for it :D

    Altough i’m waiting for the next bbpress version i can recommend one forum script that has a importer for phpbb2 and others, its MYBB, they’ve got a great comunity forum with international support.

    http://www.mybb.com/downloads/merge-system

    i like mybb but it has too many options etc, nothing wrong with it, if you use phpbb i think you’ll find it simpler but i prefer it even simpler like bbpress.

    ps: i tested the importer a few weeks ago, imported from phpbb and smf and the importer worked perfectly (tried it on wampserver with dummy forums)

    Simple Machine Forums, even though I’m using bbPress at the moment, I don’t recommend it :)

    You should take a look at Buddypress too.
