Adding a Forum to Wordpress.org

Recommended Posts

I have a current client who wants a forum added to her Wordpress.org site. She knows up front I have never added a forum to a wordpress site and that there will be a learning curve. This is for a local niche organization with only 100 members. I have seen a couple options http://bbpress.org/ and http://simplepressforum.com .Anyone have any experience with either of these ? I am comfortable with Wordpress and can do some coding but I do hope for a short learning curve. :) Any additional advice would be appreciated .

Simple Press is very easy to install and setup and has great support and is my current first choice for WP forum. You can see an example on my website under Resources

It seems to be that bbPress is harder to get setup and going. I could be wrong it has been awhile since I used it.

Jodie- your looks very clean and easy to navigate. Does it allow a members only area?

Cyndi- I had not seen either of the ones you suggested I will check them out. I always appreciate your input.

 

Thank you very much. :)

I know Simple Machines runs very smoothly and easy to set up. We've been running a graphics group I belong to on it for years. We quickly change the look of it depending on the holiday or season too. Give it a try!
