Re: Images, a pain in my side…
I’ve seen a bunch of replies today regarding things you’re unhappy with being missing from bbPress, things that are handled by plugins that should not be. I think your idea of forum software is different from the creators ideas for bbPress. I don’t think all the functionality you are missing in bbPress is ever going to be in the bbPress core. I have no official word on the subject, but from watching the replies over the past two years regarding topic like this, I don’t think these things will ever be part of the core, but will be available as plugins.
Also, bbPress is alpha or beta software, depending on the version you installed, around two years old, where phpBB is something like eight years old.
bbPress isn’t for everyone. That’s why there are lots of forum packages out there. Something for everyone.
