Discuss the future of bbPress

| October 29, 2009 | Leave a Comment

Want to keep up with or contribute to the future plans for bbPress? Matt Mullenweg started a thread about it:

A few people have reached out to me and I just wanted to let everyone know that bbPress is still an important project for the WP community. (It powers our forums and plugin directory, for one thing!) It’s not going away.

Strategically the most important thing we need to figure out is how to integrate bbPress better with WP more for people who want that — right now it’s easier to use one of the WP plugins for forums than bbPress.

As to where bbPress goes in the future, I’d be curious to hear who wants to help with that. The world is our oyster. :)

Right now bbPress isn’t enjoying the same popularity and feature set as the other forum software out there, but it has potential especially since it has close ties with WordPress. People working on WP-powered sites should look into bbPress and possibly even contribute to its development.
