to install private forum i will suggest vbullitine. that will be the best. Also i have a App Media Marketing business , and i am also thinking to install forum.
I’d easily go for IP Board or Xenforo before vBulletin. But since we’re using bbPress here and it seems silly to change software solely for private forums, we should probably stick with bbPress suggestions.
I’m sure there’s a way to implement this with some fiddling, but have you considered an alternative? I don’t find that forum software is the best method of communicating with staff members, so for my new project I’m going to use something similar to CollabPress (if not CP itself): https://wordpress.org/plugins/collabpress/
You can also load it on the front end, so your staff members can communicate without going to their WP Dashboard. I find solutions like this to be best, since you can manage all sorts of things and add milestones/accomplishments — which may motivate staff to work harder.
I love your suggestion, Tecca! That looks like a much better solution. Thank you.
