S0 I need a CMS platform with good integration with a an online forum. I do not want to reinvent the wheel. Joomla, Expression Engine? Also what are some good options for forums? vbulletin? This is new territory for me.
I am coming to a close on the the project I started this thread for and did not have a choice for which platform we used on the project. We ended up going with vbulletin and it has been probably one the worst experience I have had developing websites. So I thought I would bump up this comment again.
So in the next year There will be another project involving forums where myself and the rest of my team will possibly get to choose a new platform. Any more ideas about a good platform for developers. The one perquisite is that it needs to scale really well to support 10′s of thousands of active users.
A coworker suggested BBpress. I think this would be a great option for us because we all are pretty big fans of wordpress. The big question is how well does it scale to support many active users. I am definitely not very knowledgeable about these things which is why I ask. I will look definitely look sites that use it.
