It’s also something I looked at recently but wasn’t happy with the styles on show, as it looked like we’d lose some of the forum structure we have currently plus I wondered how easily user access groups could be setup. Losing the current archive would also be hard to stomach, and was a concern of mine as well, though that article lammie paints a better picture of it than i’d originally picked up myself. It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve moved forum so if it’s a lot better, and easier to integrate than the current setup, then i’m sure we’ll cope. I did post above what appears and easy way to integrate phpbb into a wordpress theme though and since the lookbook thing sounds as if it’s designed to integrate a blog and forum, it may not be necessary. Having said that i’m keeping an open mind atm concerning all aspects of the site and a working example of this may be good to see. Would it take long to knock up our own example, without worrying about themes or content, just to assess function?
hmmm I don’t like forums organised like that, and while it fits in with what i’ve seen of bbpress so far, I think we should put up our own test site to see what else we caj do with it. Anyone got a spare domain?
Sorry, just to explain why I don’t like the list structure, I think it works ok for one subject but we cover multiple subjects here. I might be missing something via that example though, such as wordpress categories being used somewhere.
