This will probably do the trick for me. This is developing very fast. http://wp3.in/ Anspress. It is a Question & Answer-type-plugin. Can be used per post …. and is promising in terms of features and extensions.
@Robkk – thanks for that. But again …. I am talking about what we an expect in the future.
I know all that. I also know that:
1. These plugins are outdated .. not reliable .. not something to build on …
2. After I have done that my site goes even slower.
Quote: “if you think bbPress needs specific features added to the core of the plugin make a new topic about that.”
3. This topic is not about the specifics of that survey. I was just mentioning Jeffs post in relation to his comment..
Again – what I am after is the initial blockquoted question about momentum and future expectations.
But maybe the new P2 Breathe theme will take care of all my worries … geto2.com ….http://geto2.com/field-guide/
@Jeff – Ok, glad you received my oroginal post in the way it was to be understood. Just saw your post over here http://wptavern.com/bbpress-2014-survey-results-show-users-are-still-disappointed-with-lack-of-features. I see we are along the lines …..
I could have written an article like that, but it would not have vented the frustration. I would love to be able to use bbPress and WordPress together. As it is now I dont think of bbPress as normal forum software – but conceptually I would be able to use it to replace the hopeless commenting system that is so weirdly OLD and outdated in wordpress. That way wordpress gets a lift and bbpress becomes the relatively simple software it is in its own right – as a nice facelift for wordpress commenting. Have they not noted the brilliant Disqus plugin ? It is really good – and why wordpress has not made these features native – perhaps not exactly like Disqus – but somewhere along those lines, I really cannot understand – is WordPress simply sleeping ? Users cant even edit their comments as a standard feature when commenting ? Why are they not on the forefront on this defining feature for a blogging system ?
I will probably go with Xenforo and the Xenword addon. It will probably be an official addon sometime (see also the CTA Featured threads and Portal …. nice one by Brogan..). Or MyBB which is also awesome.
Please delete this topic.
@Jeff – Thanks Jeff.
@Robin – What I want is highlighted in the question with a blockquote. So it should be pretty obvious. I am sorry for not being more explicit in my demands – but it really wasnt my purpose to suggest on specific features – just something basic as core-developed and planned groups-functionality. The intention was to get an understanding on what to expect. A word from John James Jacoby himself – just saying for example “well in the near future things arent going to go faster than the previous years” – then I would know what to expect ….. Again I refer you to the developing roadmap. Its not exactly going fast. One of the features I was looking forward to having integrated was using bbpress for comments in wordpress. Or any kind of functional integration.
However I did forget to put in group-based – along with the finegrained, nodal permissions. And yes, I am aware of the roles and capabilities. But thanks for that. And along with that I dont mean relying on a newly-developed plugin like bbpres private groups or installing buddypress. I meant having it default and taking into planning consideration. Speed is fairly obvious. Security is just a general concern, nothing really specific. But enough to keep me away from newly developed plugins.
I am sorry for any thoughtlessness in formulating my intention – and again do not mean to be arrogant. But something concrete from the team behind would be nice. I am sorry for not being more specific about the groups-thing. But I am not being specific, because that is not the point. The point is highlighted in the quote.
I can see now that it wasnt a well-formulated frustration. Wish I had made it better. So if someone could just delete it, it would be fine.
Or maybe it isnt time for that question. Just for the record. There was no arrogance of any kind involved.
It is perhaps my bad english ? It was certainly meant to be polite. Sorry for that. Expectation is simply because planning needs it. No other things were implied.
But maybe you could answer the question ?
