Re: usually forums would have…
Part of the issue is that all the plugins have come on fast in the past couple of months. In the New Year, we will have https://bbpress.org/plugins/ working and all the plugins will be in one place. Part of the fun of bbPress is the ability to have a light core file system and expand with plugins as most users don’t need all the functionality. phpBB is a great system, but extremely bloated for most users that don’t need all the functionality!
As for the plugins that are around now, WOW! Thomas, Ardentfrost, So10 and others are popping them out like crazy! I would imagine no less than 50 plugins more in 2007. Can you?
