Let's Resurrect The Standalone Version!
I remember how impressed I was the first time I saw a bbpress standalone installation. It was so clean and easy to navigate–things weren’t buried in places I couldn’t find them, the threads were clean and the UI was simple. I couldn’t resist using it on my next project.
After installing it, I got into the admin interface and it was just like using wordpress! It integrated with Akismet, there was a plugin architecture, it was fantastic! I was sold.
Then.. I started to run into a few issues here and there… a couple of the plugins didn’t work, and I couldn’t find support for them.. I couldn’t find a way to integrate a good wysiwyg editor.. and then bugs started to show up in the admin panel.
“No problem” I thought.. “I’ll just upgrade”.
Over to the bbpress.org page, and now it’s a wordpress plugin.. “OK.. guess I’ll give that a try”. after half an hour of working with it, I realized it wasn’t for me, and now I see that the standalone version appears to be permanently mothballed.
That is unacceptable. That standalone software was awesome… we can’t let it die.
Let’s bring it back!!
I am raising my voice for resurrecting the bbpress standalone software. Who here will support this effort? I’m a developer.. that’s one.. who else is going to help me?
