bbPress 2.0 Released on September 21, 2011. Version 2.1 in progress.
If you are setting up new bbPress installation you wouldn't use old version for sure.
But the problem is that most of plugins are developed for bbPress 0.9 and wouldn't work on 2.0 version.
Developers do not hurry update their plugins...
Here is some really useful plugins for bbPress 2.0 that I'd like to share with you.
- bbPress Quotes
Gives the ability to quote bbPress forum topics and replies. A quote button appears to the end of replies so users can easily quote another user.
- bbPress Moderation
Add the ability to moderate and approve new topics and replies in the bbPress V2.0 plugin
- bbPress Post Toolbar
Enables uploading/embedding images in a bbPress post. User can embed video from YouTube, Metacafe, Vimeo (and others) with shortcodes.
- bbPress2 BBCode
This plugin adds support for popular bbcode forum code to posts, comments, pages, bbpress 2.0 forum posts and buddypress activity and group forum post.
It was tested and it works. But it doesn't offer any script+buttons for marking the text. You can setup simple BBCode Editor in JS for that (here is instruction). But there is no big sense while bbPress Post Toolbar works pretty good.
But BBCode Editor is a really simple solution, customizable, can be implemented everywhere and works like a charm. TinyMCE, CKEditor are brutal in comparison to this.
Not tested yet:
- bbPpress Topic Views
Counts the number of times a bbPress topic has been viewed, and allows the administrator to display the count in various places.
- bbPress Latest Discussion
This plugin will generates Latest Discussion list from your bbpress forum into your wordpress. It has the ability to generate latest discussion on sidebar also.
- bbPress Topics for Posts
Replace the comments on your WordPress blog posts with topics from an integrated bbPress install
I didn't test it because just don't wish make comments as replies in a forum.
I'll update this post if find something else.
Please post in comments if you've found something interesting.
Now I'm looking for mini-stats for bbPress 2.0
Something like this but for bbpress2
