An idea kicking around the past 6 months was how to improve the community forum. For the open-source geek, we use WordPress as our CMS (I'm partial to its capabilities) and were using BBpress/Buddypresss for the forum/social groupings. While BBpress is a solid little plugin (and it's been around for a good long while), it definitely is a bit antiquated in how it runs and lacked some key features.

So. We've moved to the popular membership plugin Ultimate Member + ForumWP. The cleaner interface plus additional functions is, in our mind, an improvement.

Please don't hesitate to drop us a line with any questions you might have.
