  • I agree with the above. bbPress has a lot of potential to be the “forum with plugins” except it needs to have attracted enough flies to create those plugins. JJ, would like to be involved but I think I’m spending a lot of time trying to get the basics up. I think that the point is well made – Automattic needs to decide if it wants to kick start this project and provide a bit more help to you to get the basics done that attract others.

    The forum space is very hot, including q and a. IF there ever was a time, it’s now to make that decision or you’ll see others steal your thunder as integrated solutions. This would work well for them since it won’t look like a programmers tool, which it feels like more than an simpler plugin solution.

    Actually I think it is more than volunteers. I’m not a newbie/rookie and I have had my share of problems just trying to install bbpress properly. There is a misconception that, as a plugin, you just install and the script is meant to integrate into stock wordpress. That’s what it should do.

    Now while volunteering would be good, I think that someone has to kickstart this a little more than it already has been. If just the basic install and setup is a chore, then this project is a long way from being honey with which to attract flies. I’d like to be involved but not sure what that even means other than just answering the same questions about things that need to be taken care of at the top level down like the above need.

    Again, I truly respect the effort here. It’s just a question of how much is needed to get over that “hump.” Since I’m not in charge, I figured I’d mention what it feels like on this side.
