Re: Announcing BuddyPress Group Forums for bbPress
This is for sites that want to use bbPress as it was intended. As a forum. bbPress is designed to be that. The feature set of vertical software is more rich than horizontal software. bbPress does things now that bp doesn’t do and may never do.
I like having a forum interface to bbPress in bp. I’d like to see a blog interface also. I don’t expect the feature set to be the same.
It’s wonderful that bp has a forum interface since I think that forums are an extremely important part of social software. People who get together in groups like to talk. I think that the tools we use to communicate can constrain or enable that communication.
The purpose of bbGroups is to extend bp’s native strengths.
