The Skinny

About bbPress

bbPress is forum software, made the WordPress way.

Have you ever been frustrated with forum or bulletin board software that was slow, bloated, and always got your server hacked? bbPress is focused on ease of integration, ease of use, web standards, and speed.

We’re keeping things as small and light as possible while still allowing for great add-on features through WordPress’s extensive plugin system. What does all that mean? bbPress is lean, mean, and ready to take on any job you throw at it.


Now that bbPress is all grown up, we’re certain of a few things:

  1. Open Source, always and forever
  2. Less (code) is more
  3. Code is poetry
  4. Simplicity is a feature
  5. Speed & security are paramount to a great user experience

Every line of code is written with these principles in mind, and if that sounds good to you get involved!
