Forums are Dead.

Part of the reason it's taking so long to convert the forum to something more reasonable is because forums are dead.  At least that is what my developer is telling me.  They have been replaced by Facebook and Reddit.

BBPress is my choice to replace Nabble primarily because it is a product of WordPress. My developer knows it and can customize it more easily. He's a WordPress stud.

Out of the box BBPress is missing some core functionality that I think is important. For one thing you can't upload images, you can only display images uploaded elsewhere with [IMG] tags. That seems like a PITA for uploading TRs etc. Also it has no smilies!

Regardless of the life or death issue, I'm plugging ahead anyway.  Facebook is ok but I have so much more fun here. Hopefully we get it done before the internet is replaced by virtual reality.

Maybe instead of avatars we'll have toe tags.

Thanks to all for the effort put in here at the morgue.

Re: Forums are Dead.

I prefer the forums.  Where I work people don't know about the ski blog, so I can have it onscreen much more discreetly than FB.

Re: Forums are Dead.

Somebody suggested that I remove the skier image from the top to make NYSB more work friendly.

Re: Forums are Dead.

I'm not on FB. Does that mean I am double dead?
