    First I want to thank you for bbPress as I use it a lot. 🙂

    I had same question like OC2PS from long time and after reading your answers, I still feel an urge to take this discussion ahead. IMHO what OC2PS suggested is intuitive.

    With references to your answers:

    > Taxonomies don’t have metadata, to allow for topic & replies counts or latest content

    (Not one of best suggestion) Taxonomy-meta can be stored in an extra mysql-table. I wish like many other this to be part of WordPress core though (ref)

    Once we accept overhead of extra DB table, other things seems easy.

    > Comments don’t allow for attachments without some major work

    Comments already have commentmeta. May be we can use it to store array of attachment_id.

    Off-topic – By the way I did not find attachments support in bbPress out of the box? I am using a bbPress plugin for that. Am I missing something here?

    > The API for custom post types is farther along…

    Agree. 🙂

    Post-revision is an example which I guess used internally to track edits to replies.


    While the outcome bbPress is good in reality, it just feels off-beat to have 3 custom-posts.

    IMHO, going with 1 custom-post+commets+custom-taxonomy way might have made themeing part easier…

    Thanks. I was looking for a thread like that.

    May be I choose wrong keywords to search.

    I will continue there…

    chrishajer is right about issue with ‘slugs’

    only false option works… :-(

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    are they rectifying this in next version??
