Re: Which is better bbpress or wp-forum plugin ?
I switched from Simple:Press to BBpress.
For a WP based site, Simple:Press is far more sophisticated and more integrated that current BBpress.
The reason that made me switched is that Simple:Press is a one man project. The day Andy decides to get a life Simple:Press will be dumped (like was some of his previeous excellent plugins).
On the other hand BBpress seems to get a new second life and is a promising project. I would ad that in its current stage it is very usable and works pretty well.
