The creators of the excellent WordPress software have released the first public version of bbPress, a new forum software that focuses on bringing the same simplicity into the realm of forums as WordPress has done in the realm of blogs. Some of the features:
- Fast and Light: nothing you don’t need.
- Built in spam protection by Akismet.
- Really simple interface: we want people using our software to forget that they’re using it.
- Complete integration with WordPress.
- Both the look and the functionality are highly customizable.
- RSS feeds for everything.
Plus, it’s focussed on being completely standards-complaint. Sounds good. position: absolute is happily running on WordPress, so I have high hopes in this.
