Do I have any options?
I’m in a bit of a dilemma, here are my circumstances:
1. I want to use bbPress, but as a forum alone – My website is going to be a static homepage and a forum, no more and no less, and i would really hate to use a wordpress to accomplish such a simple task, it would really be an overkill, im not going to use ANY forum of cms, so id really hate to install wordpress ONLY so i can use bbPress, is there any way to get bbPress as a forum alone, not as a plugin?
2. In the homepage, i want there to be two boxes:
Box1 – shows the latest topic from a certain forum(the announcement forum), including the title, and content, number of comments and user that posted it.
Box2 – shows a featured topic. I know there is a plugin for this, im just curios if i could use functions from bbPress, outside of bbPress, as in, in the homepage page, which is not a wordpress page.
So these are my circumstances. What do you think? should i install wordpress JUST so i could use the forum(if so, is there any way to really trim it down? i dont need the users system, comments, pages, posts, etc. Almost everything revolves around the forum)? If not, what are the alternatives?
bbPress is a really great software, and would really want to use it 🙂
