MyBB

May peace be upon you,
1. Frankly, the forum software sucks hard. I would recommend to switch to MyBB which is much more up-to-date to our era.

2. I made a facebook connect module for it too. MyBB also has a Quran plugin which will be useful a lot here http://mods.mybb.com/view/quran-code

Wassalam

We agree totally. At some point, we will be migrating to a new system, insha'Allah. Unfortunately, myBB isn't the answer. What we're waiting for is the soon-to-arrive bbPress, so that it integrates with the blog.

We do all of this voluntarily, so it has to be done at our own pace sadly.

Have a look at this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordbb/

I am just throwing everything on the table. Its up to you to decide what to choose :)

Thanks, but we're waiting for the officially supported plug-in for full integration and security. We will be happy to look at alternatives if you can give strong arguments in their favour.

MyBB is the best free forum software. Even better than some paid ones.

It may not be the best integrator with wordpress. However, forumwise, it's best.

Try wordbb on localhost and see if it completes your need. Else, if complete integration with wordpress is your aim, go with bbpress.

Thanks for the advice. We're waiting on bbPress. Work seems to have picked up on it again, so we'll gently retire this rubbish phpBB setup once bbPress is reasonably stable insha'Allah

(phpBB looks so 90s it's embarrassing. Like looking at a DOS 3.3 prompt frankly)
