Plugin to share via social networking sites

  • Howdy,

    It doesn’t look like bbPress has an extensive library of plugins like Word Press. Is this really the best option for forums or should I consider Simple Press, which is what others recommend.

    Also, does anyone know of a plugin that allows people to share posts via other social networking sites? Thanks all.

  • Simple Press Sucks

    BBPress is too young at this point for it to be a permanent solution

    Vanilla is too unstable to be a permanent solution

    VBulletin is too clunky

    Esotalk got abandoned.


    I wish the WP-Forum worked on WordPress 2.8 then I would be a happy camper

    bbPress JUST went live with the 1.x version. So yeah, there are few plugins. It’s a baby.

    Best is subjective. What do you need out of a forum? :)

    I have used PHPBB and that is a pretty robust service. But I liked having something integrated. BBPress works okay for now.

    I am looking for a plugin that will allow someone to share posts on my forum via social networking sites. WordPress has tons of them. Anyone found one for BBPress yet?

    Hi smf, I tested Simple forums (I also tested Joomla with Kunena and ccborad, and phbb, and Vanilla).

    In the end, I am settling for bbPress for forums because I need single-user sign on with my content system, and I settled on wordpress for that (Joomla was too slow and I wanted a very fast, responsive site).

    So if you need forum integration with something, you have more factors to consider than just the forum software itself.

    Simple Forums does provide single-user signon with WordPress, but it’s UGLY and there are no good-looking themes. That said, simpleForums is a highly functional forum system and seamless integration with both user and menu-system.
