    bbPress was a standalone forum software until version 2.0. Since version 2.0 it's a powerful Wordpress plugin that will offer a good forum option for your website if you need advanced functionalities like user profiles, topic tags, mark topics as favorites, email notifications...

    This plugin can be found here:

    The "Forums" plugin available here at wpmudev is a good option if you manage a wordpress network and if you want to offer your subsites admins a simple but easy to use forum solution (they will have their own forum on their website).

    If you are just looking for a forum for YOUR website I would recommend bbpress.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks Laurent for the information.
    I have not installed WPmultisite, nor bbPress on my own. I bought a installed solution through ...

    Just now I figured out that you can add groups and created forums only at the admin main site.
    What I am trying to do is add forums only to my other blogs. For example I have another domain that points to site within the main admin site. I would like to have forums por each subdomain or site that I create. I do not want all groups/forums come to my main site.

    The multisite installation is on but I have other domains such as, I would like an independent forum for each of these domains. How do I do this?

    Hi alexandegn,

    If you're using BuddyPress (for messaging, social network, etc.) it's likely that using the bbPress forums plugin alongside it would be problematic. However, if you're not using BuddyPress, then you've got at least two options on this.

    Our own Forums plugin definitely lets you and your users create Forums on you sub-sites, as it's totally multisite compatible and capable.

    bbPress should work just as well in a multisite, but as mentioned earlier, bbPress may have trouble running alongside BuddyPress currently.

    So you may have at least 2 good choices here! :slight_smile:
