  1. About mini bbPress. On some sites I’ve been to certain blog post gets a thread in the forum for more in depth discussions. That would be a nice feature. Perhaps a combo of sorts.


  2. The most tantalizing part of Matt’s statements above for me would definitely be

    …and profile features, in particular, are useful to the future of discussion forums

    Any mention of profile features makes me giddy. I’ve just come off a large project and the one thing lacking on my install is extended profile fields. Over the past year, I’ve investigated and tested several different plugins that attempt to let the admin create and manage custom profile fields, and then tried to integrate those into the registration form. None of them panned out. I am hoping that if the bbPress plugin sees the light of day, then it will include (or lead to) an easier path to creating custom profile fields and integrating them with the registration process.

    @Adam W. Warner – Have you tried using BuddyPress exclusively for XProfile? That should get that job done rather nicely.


  4. @John James Jacoby,

    No I hadn’t thought of that, thanks for the reminder on Extended Profiles! I’ll do some experimenting and see what I can come up with!


  5. I just recently set up my first WordPress / bbPress integration. I have to say, it wasn’t the smoothest process. I would really love to see bbPress become a plugin and I’m glad to see it is starting to get off the ground. I can see so much potential in bbPress, but it just isn’t there yet.
