    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?

    Could you find a working example via that article? I can only get a 404 error via links to the lookbook.

    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.
