bbPress is the best forum software by far. It’s open source, based on WordPress, and simple to use.
The problem isn’t that bbPress is slow, or buggy, or insecure. bbPress is none of those things. The problem is a catch-22.
If nobody uses bbPress, nobody will spread the word. If nobody spreads the word, nobody will know what they’re missing.
Find bugs, write patches, run it on your server, but most importantly, spread the word.
We can help bbPress pull through this. We can revive the wonderful, simplistic software. All you need to do is tell your friends, or post something like this to your blog.
