BuddyPress good for Feedback forums?

    Hi all!

    I am not yet a user of BuddyPress, but I am considering adding it to my WordPress installation. So far, I have been using uservoice as a solution for feedback forums for my services. The solution is good, but hardly customizable, and not for free.

    I was consequently wondering of BuddyPress would be a good choice for replacement. What I would like to have is a user base coupled with WordPress (BuddyPress has that), and one main forum where people could post their feedback, ideas, feature requests… I also would like the users to be able to vote for each other’s ideas.

    Do you think BuddyPress is a good solution for that? Shall I stick with uservoice / getsatisfaction likes? Shall I turn to bbPress only?

    What’s your opinion about that? If some of you know of working examples, I would be happy to see them!

    Thank you for your help!

    Jeremy

    @jeherve – there are some exciting developments happening with bbPress, which should help you build your site.

    A new version of bbPress will work better with BuddyPress to provide the one main forum solution you are looking for, backed up by all the advantages of the BuddyPress social platform for looking after the user base.

    A beta of the new bbPress (installed as a plugin in your WordPress site alongside BuddyPress) is due around the middle of September. @johnjamesjacoby is leading the development.

    Not sure on the reviews / voting, but there are bound to be some good plugins out there.

    @rogercoathup Alright, thanks for the heads up then! I will stay posted! By the way, is there an easy way to follow on the development of bbPress plugin? Maybe a dev blog like wpdevel.wordpress.com?

    And about the reviews/ voting, I am open to any plugin ideas then!

    Thank you again!

    @jeherve – I don’t know about a development blog for the bbPress plugin. You are probably best to ask John James Jacoby directly.

    It might be a good idea to ask the question directly in this support forum about reviews / voting. Do a search first to see what other threads are around.
