Review: bbPress plugin. Simple setup and config make this a great plugin.

As usual I am still attempting to break my little Android server here so I decided to install and test yet another plugin. Tonight’s review is on the bbPress plugin and I have to say that so far it is great.

The config was easy, the options are few, but useful. Basically if you would like to add a forum to your site this is definitely the way to go.  It does appear to use a lot of memory so I won’t be keeping it running on this site.

I had set it up so that anyone can create a topic and reply to a topic. But as of this morning (31Aug14) it appears to be crashing my little server. So I have deactivated it.


I am going to give this plugin 4.5 stars and highly recommend it to someone wanting to create a forum on their site. While it wasn’t functional on my site due to memory restrictions I would hazard a guess than on something with 2gb ram it would run fine.
