I’m switching the forums back to bbPress now that there is a bbPress WordPress plugin for it. I’m going to try to port all the messages back but there I’m not sure how that will work out. So please be patient if you feel you need to post to the forums. I had previously used bbPress but is seemed that no progress was being made regarding development so I switched to Mingle Forum. Turns out bbPress was more useful – I was able to track topics better and respond better to posts. So that said I need to fix a few style issue and and try to port the posts back to bbPress and then the forums will be available once again.
UPDATE: In retrospect I’ve decided not to import the existing forum content for a couple of reasons. One, I don’t have the time to do it. And, two, I’d just like to start fresh with the forums and simplify them.
