Looking for the best combo for WP + BP + forum
Hello. I’m running a community site running WP + BP and the BP group forums are not doing exactly what we’d like from a forum software. We used a punBB forum software previously and we’d like to keep the forum portion of the community site relatively similar; a focused forum area with forum areas with subcategories. I know there’s a development to make bbPress into a plug-in for WP, but I’m not whether we should/want to wait for that or if there’s already a good solution available.
Anyways, let me list what we ideally want from our forum:
- forum users derived from WP + BP user database so there is only one login required both to the site and forum
- possibility to control forum permissions based on BP groups and on single user basis
- forums with subcategories
That’s really the ‘must have’ part. Stuff like easy-ish access to forums CSS and other customization and forum features are bonus stuff. If you have ideas or pointers to what I should look for please advice!
