Looking for alternatives
I apologize beforehand if this isn’t the proper section for this – it’s the best that I thought fit.
I’m starting to look for alternatives to bbPress. I went with it initially because I was impressed by WordPress – so much functionality in one package, all basics included, and the offbeat requirements were largely fulfilled by third-party plugins. bbPress as a forum were also innovative, quick, and the “new generation” designed with the mistakes of current forums in mind.
However, unlike WordPress, the basic package doesn’t quite provide the basic functionality – and having 3rd party plugins do the essential jobs needed is unreliable. For some things, there is no such plugin yet, for others the plugins are outdated, or poorly designed.
Does anyone know of similar forums – designed to be lean, and up to date on today’s web design and technology?
I’ve looked at a whole bunch lately, and am eyeing Vanilla right now. However any suggestions are welcome.
edit: sigh, my ampersand is being replaced with & which leads to some trac ticket…
