How close is the WPMU Forum plugin to bbPress?

Hi Folks,

Three questions:

1) How close in functionality is the Forum plugin to bbPress?

2) Why would I want to use it instead of bbPress?

3) Have you folks gotten together with the folks at http://www.tapatalk.com to see about getting the Forum plugin added to the list of forums they support?

If not, then you really need to look into it. Forums are fairly difficult to use on a mobile device and being able to add the TapATalk plugin to your site so that it works with their mobile app is a real improvement for the user experience.

They already support bbPress so it might not be hard to get them to add support for the Forum plugin (or if it is close enough to bbPress there might be no work at all - just getting them to add the WPMU Forum plugin to their list of supported forums.

Thanks!

    Greetings LANSRAD,

    Thank you for your questions and input which are greatly appreciated.

    1) How close in functionality is the Forum plugin to bbPress?

    They are not in the same league though some items are indeed similar. Our Forums plugin is not nearly mature as bbPress.

    2) Why would I want to use it instead of bbPress?

    Much easier to configure and get operating.

    3) Have you folks gotten together with the folks at http://www.tapatalk.com to see about getting the Forum plugin added to the list of forums they support?

    Not that I am aware of and this action is not within my authority to decide and/or implement. However, I will direct my direct inline supervisor to this very ticket and consider it as a feature request.

    Cheers, Joe
