WordPress+bbPress = ‘dressed to kill’ combination :)

bbPress is forum software with a twist from the creators of WordPress. if you've ever been frustrated with forum or bulletin board software that was slow, bloated and always got your server hacked? bbPress is focused on web standards, ease of use, ease of integration, and speed.

resources, features and showcases can all be found on this site

if i were you I'd go with bbpress. it's the best if you are looking for a quick solution which just works. It integrates well and can share wordpress database out of box. Moreover there are many Buddypress/bbPress plugins available.



------------------------------------------------


or better yet, you could build a social network for your company, school, sports team or niche community all based on the power and flexibility of WordPress by using the plugin called BuddyPress!

it's completely free and open source. I don't think you'd find anything as tightly integrated as BuddyPress because it's written by same people as WordPress.

Out of the box BuddyPress will give you:
Discussion Forums
WordPress Blogging
Activity Streams
Extended Profiles
Private Messaging
Friend Connections
Extensible Groups
Plus even more using so many plugins.

@FixitJorge I would go for xenforo too if a paid software. As for FOSS, I've been thinking of Vanilla. But I will try phpBB thanks to your suggestions.
