Re: Constructive Criticism: bbPress’s kryptonite
Sometime ago I used to think the same, bbpress is too light but when it comes to integrate with wordpress and after having tried another option like simple-forum, I prefer a light core.
Perhaps the problem is the lack of a codex where you can find out how to add things-> do you want email notification? add this plugin.
This should be my only concern so far along with some parts of the core that should be in the template folder. There is stuff in functions.bb-template.php and I recently found more in functions.bb-core.php .
