What's wrong with BBPress
I’ve been looking for a solid forum software for quite some time now. vBulletin has a lot of features, but it’s too bloated…it’s “Web 1.0”
I explored Vanilla, EsoTalk, and now bbPress. I thought bbPress would be a good option, but it seems like the developer community has completely abandoned it over the past year. There are no themes, no plugins, and barely any updates to the core forum. As I kept looking for themes, I found this on bbShowcase:
The bbPress Showcase has been discontinued.
The removal of Sam Bauers and the halting of bbpress.org 2.0
was a clear and final sign that there is no interest in allowing
bbPress to become a mature, robust program and community.
By now bbPress 1.5 could have been in alpha but instead
bbPress development has been deliberately stagnated,
which should be a very alarming warning to everyone.
In addition, bbShowcase had only six donations in 2009,
which indicated to me there was no interest in my work.
My code will remain on bbpress.org as open source GPL
for those that wish to use it, however I caution you to
consider bbPress’s lack of leadership before continuing to use it.
Now I’m back at square one again. Not knowing which forum software to use.
