Great new forum plugin for WP!

This plugin is probably the best for start WP forum.

The project starts, it still lacks some functions, but the team works there.

Thank you !

Great support – great plugin

I have used wpforo for a couple of months and really happen about it. It is a wp-forum but does not use posttype, so it doesn’t slow the rest of the site. The forum itself is very fast as well.

The forum is nice and easy to work with. At least give it a test run if you consider using a forum.

Perfect better than BBPRESS

i work both joomla and wordpress and i can tell is this forum tool is perfect for any business or community solution
better than bbpress especially for SEO

Absolutely the best

I’m moving from xenForo to wpForo and am VERY HAPPY with the simplified interface and the pairing with WordPress that allows me to manage the forum better than ever. My forum has over 410,000 posts and 7,300 registered members and wpForo handles it just fine. The wpForo team also logged in to my site to help me with optimization issues. They even made some recommendations regarding hosting specs and theme issues, and continue to support me in the conversion from xenForo.

The paid addons are also excellent and provide awesome improvements to the forum functionality.
