I know the majority who run WP prefer to integrate forum software from the big boys - XF, IPB, etc. I've spent some time investigating what addons there are available, and there are quite a few. The ones that stand out the most to me are:- bbPress is an obvious one which, if you combine it with BuddyPress, you can build your own social network. The main upside of these is they're both official WP plugins. wpForo is quite a pretty one, but to gain any real functionality - like messaging, polls, embedding and ads, you have to purchase their extras , which can cost a pretty penny. Asgaros is another nice one, and while it has a few of the features you'd have to pay to get on wPForums, it's still pretty basic and there's no extension availability for it for anything above and beyond. So, I suppose my question is does anyone use one of the addons available. What are your thoughts on them, experiences with them, etc?
