Re: Performance comparison
I tested Vanilla out for a week or so, then bbPress (I’d tried every other flavour out there in the two weeks before). Vanilla is cool, and I love the look of version 2, but bbPress is what I’m going with now for 2 community forums.
As to speed, I haven’t done any ‘proper’ testing, but find bbPress very fast. Also, all the plugins I need worked first time without problems,and the default theme is very easy to adapt. bbPress only uses 8 core tables compared to 14 in Vanilla. I guess that might speed things up a little, as there are less eggs in the air..?
