I was looking for a forum system that everyone is using and I always found that the majority of people use phpBB for a standalone forum, and bbPress as an add-on if they are using WP.

But I kinda don’t like both… phpBB for doing too much, and bbPress fot not doing that much, or being older and older without new release.

What are you using to make a forum and why? for both ways… with or without compatibility with WordPress.

If you can give me some pro and cons on your personal experience it would be great!

Thanks in advance!

How easy/difficult would it be to hook up Vanilla Forums to only allow a user who has purchased your files to post questions?

I recommend you use BuddyPress – there are a lot of great plugins that will make it exactly what you need. Parallelus uses BuddyPress forums and it works fantastically.

BuddyPress for forums??? Or, is it bbPress?

We use phpBB3 (bbPress 2.0 was not ready when we started our support forum). It also works fantastically for us and our buyers are happy…

Yes, BuddyPress uses bbpress for the forums… but obviously if all the community stuff is not needed I would just go with bbpress…
