Thanks, Robin. I understand that both BuddyPress and BBPress create WordPress users. But if Buddypress users and BBpress users are identical, I’m wondering why BBPress has a Forum registration function.
The second part of your response seems to be assuming that I was asking why BuddyPress and BBPress aren’t included in WordPress. I wasn’t asking that. I was asking why Buddypress and BBpress aren’t together in one plugin.
