making bbPress (and WordPress) work better!

First ever TalkPress powered website?

Unless I missed an announcement somewhere,
I think I’ve found the first ever TalkPress powered website:

Looks really nice. I believe it quietly went live in the middle of March.

TalkPress is essentially Automattic hosted bbPress forums,
just like what is to WordPress blogs.
(it uses global logins/cookies)

Matt first mentioned TalkPress a year ago.

update: Yup, I did indeed miss an announcement, here it is:

    The lack of an official announcement is puzzling. Perhaps it is in beta?

  3. Well the lack of promotion is probably because it’s only just finished, the version of bbPress being used is in an alpha state, and they probably want a few more sites to show off before they start tooting their own horn about it.

    Apparently it’s being done for now under the WordPress VIP program which means there’s a very limited selection of clients it’s being offered to – hence no purpose in advertising yet.

  4. Correct, this site launched in mid-March and is under the TalkPress VIP service (similar setup as WordPress VIP). And this particular client is indeed a WordPress VIP client as well.

    I’m sure Automattic will get information out in due time so look for that.

    • This also means that there is a high probabilty that forums and plugin section is running on TalkPress.
