if you intend to create a forum on your website and don't want to provide anything else than posts/replies then bbpress will do just fine...
Thankyou, I installed a version for trial and Im amazed at its simplicity. Im looking at the plugins and I think its enough for me, though the layout of the site is not the best. The reason I liked bbpress is that it looks more stable then other free forums. I looked at phpBB, but it looks hackable. Im really not up on this as this would be my first attempt at a forum, so I thought bbpress might at least be a good start.
