Das dürfte einige WordPress-User interessieren. Kris Bailey hat ein Plugin für WordPress geschrieben, das WP mit einem Standard-ähnlichem Forum integriert, inkl Usermanagement über einen WP-Account:
XDForum is a WordPress plugin that adds a forum to your WordPress powered blog. It is similar in structure to phpBB and vBulletin but does not have all the enterprise features that they have that aren’t needed on a blog forum. It is small and very very easy to install. You simply download, unzip, upload the directory to your plugins directory, log in and activate the plugin, set your default options, and go. Viola, you have a forum. Granted, you must create a few forums in your forum system for people to post in, but thats a given. Have fun, and feel free to post questions on the latest news item below.
