Re: Sometimes Less Is Just Less
Here’s the current state of deep integration – along with hints at the future path.
There’s no known way to access bbPress functions inside of WordPress:
Sam has said he’s willing to support WordPress function calls from inside of bbPress
But WordPress isn’t returning the favor:
So essentially, we’re looking at one-way integration being the probable future. bbPress is working hard to make sure it itnegrates deeply with WordPress, but WordPress isn’t making the same effort.
But- keep in mind that there’s a performance hit for “deep integration”! I personally use simple integration on my sites. _ck_ highlights the advances of simple integration here:
It’s pretty disappointing that WordPress isn’t using BackPress… especially since Sam made such a huge effort to integrate BackPress into bbPress. Also, bbPress took quite a performance hit from integrating BackPress.
I’m hoping for a miracle somehow to redeem bbPress! In the meantime, I’m preparing contingency plans…
