Re: Trying to make a job board using BBpress, but have some decision problems
If you are just making one locked post with no replies then WordPress will suit you better. Forums are best for users being able to start threads themselves. Blog-like CMS software is best for 1-to-many.
The other benefit of WordPress is that you can have unlimited alias nicknames and anonymous self-posting with alias nicknames. So you could pretend to be “Microsoft” when you post and then later if Microsoft really becomes a client you can give them a true login with the real username.
Last but not least wordpress has far more development and plugins and contributors than bbpress at this time. Something to consider for a commercial application.
