WP Forum Server

July 8, 2009 By vast Guru 4 comments

This WordPress plugin will add forum capability to your WordPress installation. WP Forum Server is much more than just a fork of the WP-Forum plugin. We have fixed many errors that existed for months; added a new theme; added 2.7/2.8 menus for a much more up-to-date look. Change a bit of the code around.>/p>

This is not just a renamed plugin. Our Forum Server is a fork of the flawed and outdated WP-Forums plugin. WP-Forums offers no support and the plugin had not been updated at the time our plugin was created.
