Re: bbPress 1.0 alpha
I’m in the same situation, using SimplePress and willing to switch.
I’m not willing to do so because of SimplePress problems (SimplePress is far more advanced than most forums scripts, BBPress included and far better integrated with WP than most forums BBPress included) but because it’s a single man project and the day he will decide to have a life it’s likely the project will be dropped…
Currently I’m converting things by hand (and with PhpMyAdmin) because I didn’t found any converter (and that’s normal, Simple Press is not very well known and would deserve better diffusion).
I would be interested by your experience in integrating BBpress in WP design.
