    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts in general about the best way to create a forum. I’m creating one for a client using bbPress, and I’m not in love with it. It doesn’t seem very user-friendly to me. For example, when trying to reply to a topic, there is no login area on the page – a user would have to scroll up to the widget to login or register.

    Does anyone have experience with other plugins?





    Hey Elaine

    I couldn’t get on with bbPress, and now I use myBB.

    Get a theme from Audentio to go with it and you’re away.

    Hi Charlie.

    I had a hard time with bbPress, too. It just was not very intuitive for me. I ended up using a Zingiri forum, which is pretty good, easy to customize. I’m having a small issue with a plugin, and the support isn’t great, but it works for what it is. This was my first time installing a forum, and I’m sure your information will come in handy – thank you!
