Simple Press - My experiences :)

I have been running my website for ten years this month and I am both amazed and delighted with Simple Press and just how effective it is as a forum solution.  

Originally I used phpNuke as my CMS which included a variant of pbpBB at the time - as my userbase grew I switched to a more stable phpBB and eventually ported to the commercial system Vbulletin (which I hated) and IBBoard (which I also didn't like), migrating my users and data as we went and expanded.

Two weeks ago after finally growing sick of the lumbering behemoth that was my forums and community I decided that I would start anew with a fresh forum, fresh userbase and fresh experience that was integrated into Wordpress fully and required no bridge plugs and so forth, as you can imagine I was less than filled with joy at using Mingle (terrible) or bbPress(same) due to their bugginess, non straightforward integration and general tackiness.  

On installing the free version of Simple:Press I was really impressed with how easily it integrated, the ease of use for the end user and it's clever and non obtrusive method of plugin purchase and decided to go for the swap - and I have no intention of going back either!  I subbed up, installed only the plugins I needed and have not had a single problem along the way!

Well done to the team.
