Is BBPress Still Current for 2019 & Beyond?

  • theatereleven


    I typically use Discourse for my forums, but would like to set one up in WordPress directly. I know BBPress has stood the test of time and is hard core WordPress, used by people like Elliot for AdvancedCustomFields support.

    But is development planned for the future? I just don’t want to sink a lot of time into something that isn’t going to be supported. I’d gladly pay for BBPress… Whatever. Just want to know there’s a future.

    For example. in this box I can’t add an image via a simple paste in. That’s a big deal for support forums where screenshots are used.

    Thanks anyone for advice on this!
