If you run a website using WordPress, you probably don’t need the assistance of a duck, or any other aviator, to accomplish your goals… But, what the f*ck a duck do you use for forums?!
bbPress vs phpBB
Keep it simple.
The world just imploded, nothing else exists except for bbPress and phpBB. Which do you think is better?
I don’t want to hear opinions about anything else. For this conversation, phpBB and bbPress are the only options.
SMF, vBulletin, miniBB, these are NOT options in this discussion. They do not exist in this context. If you bring up any other forum software other than bbPress or phpBB, I will talk about ducks all day, all night, and possibly for the rest of eternity or at least for the rest of your measly existence.
Which forum do you think is better and why?
Remember, in this scenario you have a blog that uses WordPress. Is it worth setting up phpBB, or is a WordPress plugin like bbPress the better choice?
Here is a full feature comparison from ForumMatrix to help breakdown the differences between each.
