    I think an importer for bbPress is more important than anyone continuing the current plugin.

      I am of the opposite opinion, there needs to be more than one player for any plugin type.

        M, I don’t think this is a plugin which should be continued though.

        If I were to take over this plugin, I would just write an entirely new plugin from scratch, then write an exporter/importer to shunt the content over. The base code on this is not useful at all IMHO. AFAIK, the base code in this was written before WordPress even had custompost-type support, so the whole architecture simply doesn’t match how WordPress operates. This is presumably why the project has eventually come to halt.

        But then bbPress already fills the forum niche quite well, so I wouldn’t make a new plugin either, I’d just make a bbPress importer. Hence my original comment above.

        Hi Ryan,

        Developing with bbPress is of course easier since it relies on the familiar WordPress functions and architecture but scaling it is not.

        Look at WooCommerce, there is an ongoing effort to move orders and their metadata out of the default WordPress tables. Forums suffers from the same difficulties and thankfully Simple:Press has taken that route (separate database tables) from the get-go.

        Cordially, M.

      Totally agree, importers for all the major forum systems out there, including bbPress and BuddyPress.
