Plugin: Forums - Continued Development/Enhancements or Just Maintenance Mode

Since the release of the Forums plugin, there have been numerous feature requests over the years (...and during such time, BuddyPress retired their Forum component [...and yes bbpress still maintains their group forums but that is neither here or there]).

Is there or are there future plans to develop such features? Or has this plug-in been shelved and now just in maintenance mode.

...Simple, light and straight-forward sounds great, but most of the time if dominantly tilted in that direction, usability is diminished and complexity is increased.

    Hey Brad,

    Thanks for your question!

    To be honest, the Forums plugin is currently just in maintenance mode. There won't be any new features added anytime soon.

    We are focusing our man-power on up coming major releases of some of our more popular plugins; as well as some new projects that we think our members will like

    Like you mentioned, bbpress is the top dog as far as WordPress forums go right now.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
