[resolved] Best WordPress forum plugin? (9 posts)

    I just started using WordPress, and I'm making my first website with it at the moment. So I'm wondering what forum plugin is the best one to use?

    I need a forum that can use the same user accounts as in WordPress, so that my users don't have to sign up twice to start using the forums. And it should be customizable, so that I can make it fit with my own theme.

    Can anyone guide me in the right direction? :)

    http://bbpress.org/ which is made by the same people as wordpress. They are promising to make it much better as of late.

    There have been plenty of promises over the last year but it more often than not turns into a big flame war on their discussion forum. I would love to hear from anyone inside wordpress about some concrete info surrounding bbpress including release dates, beta testing, new features, etc.

    There have been plenty of promises over the last year but it more often than not turns into a big flame war on their discussion forum.

    I think flame war is a little harsh, infact the thread Matt reffered to in his KeyNote speech (called a "flame war" by WPtavern) can be found here: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/whats-happening-with-bbpress/page/5

    The world's politest flame war ever?? It appears to me to be really a civilised conversation including 2 moderators and the lead developer who can't get any information out of the project lead.

    Look at all those people using such bad language like "please", "thank you", and "appreciate". Scary stuff. It's amazing what people write behind the anonymity of the internet.

    I would love to hear from anyone inside wordpress about some concrete info surrounding bbpress including release dates, beta testing, new features, etc.

    So would the bbPress team ;-)

    Hello,
    I recently released the WordPress Twitter Forums Plugin as an alternative to a full scale forums solution. The Retweet.@ forums re-format tweets into a threaded conversation allowing for unlimited nesting.

    The WordPress Twitter Forums Plugin places a unique floating Twitter Forums button on the right edge of your WordPress Blog that expands with a animated slide-in effect to reveal a Retweet.@ Twitter powered forum.

    Retweet.@ is a free service developed and provided by SumtnSumtn UG (haftungsbeschrŠnkt). This plugin takes advantage of this powerful social media resource and incorporates it into your WordPress website in a unique way that allows you to create an ongoing conversation with users, engaging them interactively with your website’s content.

    It’s available in the official repository @ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-twitter-forums-plugin/
