Checking in with this. Wanting to use BB for premium members only signed up through MM. I read above it slows down site and would create cache issues. which i've experienced already with other plugins.
Main question is if I use BB as a closed forum is it easy to integrate with MM, and user info for MM is automatically used for BB? Also, does it cause speed issues? T
Thanks for any info
I'm also looking at integrating the two. Did you have any luck Kiconwell?
@yourvetonlinetech Been using BBpress for now. Seems to be working fine. The MM login automatically gives access to the forum. I am also locking the forum pages to certain member access. So far so good.
@adrian It was pretty easy to set up, and I'd recommend the combo if you don't mind the forum looking pretty basic. I imagine you could put some time into designing it a bit better, as straight out of the box BB looks pretty outdated.
One thing to mention but might not be relevant; I jumped the gun on the forum as there wasn't enough interaction in it due to a low number of members. Would only implement a forum again when my numbers are much bigger (high hundreds at least).
