Re: External and Group use of bbPress
+1 to having forum categories on a per group basis.
I already run a number of vb sites with hundreds of thousands of users and would love to someday bring that platform to wordpress/bp.
The problem is that my forums are huge (millions of posts) and without separation, it would be impossible using group forums.
I’d rather not have to create a separate group just to have a separate forum, as then I would end up with hundreds of groups (one forum I run has about a hundred or so subforums all are very active). That would only diminish the value of using groups imho.
I just don’t see the feasibility of doing it this way.
For instance, how in the world would you convert a site like vbulletin.org forums over to bp groups?
Even with very fancy templating it would still not work properly
(Yes, I know, groups are really just uber powerful forum categories… for a lack of a better way of putting it)
