making bbPress (and WordPress) work better!

Happy Birthday bbPress!

It’s still before midnight somewhere in the world, so I can still wish bbPress a happy 1st birthday.

bbPress is the forum software spinoff from the same person (Matt) that started WordPress (though others have completely taken over at this point).

While Matt had been working on it since Christmas 2004, version 0.7.2 (nickname “bix”) was finally officially released for public consumption on Saturday October 14th 2006 making it a year old today.

It’s come a long way since then. If you’d like to see what kind of tricks bbPress can do now, take a peek at my bbPress Showcase, which now has a permanent home at

    I’ve been trying to get in touch with you regarding the ‘Move It’ bbPress plugin you modified. Would it be possible for you to email me?

  3. In the menu, you will need to locate the Send To option.
    When you click on Accounts it will open a little
    window with the word Accounts in bold letters in the page you’re already on. s Internet age, everyone who uses the Internet is subject to a barrage of numerous unsolicited emails.
