I've used Wpforo for a few years now and bought many of their addons. Unfortunately, there are often issues with the software, especially following updates. They often mess things up with the code and refuse to listen to members when they bring it up. It's only after more members start complaining that they do something. Support is very arrogant. Even if you report known issues, they just blatantly refuse to look deeper into it. They will just shrug you off like "no one else has reported it and we don't see the issue". The forum software is ok, but it's bloated and the design is a bit strange. The refuse to make it look more like traditional forums (phpbb, Invisionboard) which is just strange to me. You might as well just install one of those forums on a subdomain and then connect the logins between forum and website. But yeah, the support is what I find to be the worst. Far too arrogant.

Being new to Wordpress, I find this plugin to be very easy to use and install, appealing on the eyes on a basic level but the only gripe I have with it is that it doesn't have some sort of reactive theme where if a site is placed in dark mode, the forum section on the site will change to a dark mode also. Not much of a big gripe but still a jarring one from an aesthetic point of view.

We just finished upgrading our community of 42,000 members and almost 400,000 posts from bbPress and GD bbPress Toolbox over to WPForo. While the configuration, profile syncing and migration can be a bit tricky, the end result is nothing short of spectacular. The experience is more modern, faster and mobile friendly compared with bbPress. The configurability on types of forums (threaded, vs QA, etc) gives a lot of flexibility, and the widgets load fast and look good. It solves the biggest problem anyone who has used bbPress on a large forum has - threaded posts don't paginate so you end up with huge pages that take forever to load. Loading time for these pages went down from minutes on bbPress to seconds on WPForo. The default styles they offer look good, and there's enough flexibility to cover the basic customizations needed. Some more advanced customizations need you to add to php (such as showing most recent replies first under a topic), but I've been able to find answers for how to accomplish most of what we needed. The only thing I'd say is lacking is the responsiveness of support. The free plugin is supported by a community forum, which is generally fine. And the paid addons have their own dedicated support which is fast. What is lacking is support for folks who have paid for all the addons but need support on the base features. In the grand scheme of things, this is a relatively minor drawback and doesn't stop me from wholeheartedly recommending wpForo to anyone looking to setup a forum.

PRO: Very professional looking and knowing-all forum. You can set everything. Looks pretty. Have several paid add-ons that make your life more bright. Super Patient support team! CON: Installing is slow (because of the massive build), for the exact settings maybe you will need professional help. Seems easy, but what is merit, same is a flaw, too many things have to be set.
