WPWeekly Episode 36 – Interview Of Sorts With Douglas Bell

wordpressweekly1Joining me this week on WordPress Weekly was Douglas Bell who operates Webmacster87.info as well as hosts the PHPBBWeekly podcast. In this episode, David and I chatted about a number of subjects including:

  • WordPress User Interface History
  • BBPress
  • PHPBB3
  • The possibilities of the WordPress team working with PHPBB to develope a bridge between the two
  • Security of PHPBB3 and WordPress

And a whole lot more. While PHPBB and WordPress are two different pieces of open source software serving different needs, I find it interesting to discuss the differences in strategy as well as the similarities between the two.
