I know this is a basic question but I'm having trouble wrapping my mind on how best to set up forums in a Membership-based BuddyPress site.
Before I start my install, I'm trying to understand if:
1) Do I need to install bbPress if I want to implement forums?
2) How does the BuddyPress Forum module differ from bbPress (or can they work together)?
Since I won't be doing a MU install, does that change any of my considerations.
