After searching for 2 days,
I finally found a professional looking forum plugin for WordPress.
So, I thought why not share it with you guys, letting you guys know that such an awesome plugin does exist and also to show my appreciation to the developers of the plugin.
Use of Forum Plugin for WordPress
Just consider yourself!
You come to Wickller.com to know about SEO and you find this page named “Forum” with a bunch of people having a conversation regarding various aspects of Digital marketing, about tips n tricks and about the problems they are facing in SEO.
Won’t this make you stay a bit longer on the site and arouse you to engage in a conversation with them?
Obviously, if you are interested in what you are searching for, then it will!
Forum – wpForo
This free forum plugin with nearly pro features is created by gVectors team.
Now, when I talk about a free version of forums, don’t imagine the crappy one’s that you normally get. This one is fancy and it has all the features that you could possibly expect from a premium version of such. Click here to download
This plugin allows you to create Forums in 3 different layouts.
- Extended Layout – Classic forum layout showing the recent post extended.
- Simplified Layout – Modern forum layout showing the topic and author avatars.
- Question and Answer Layout – This layout looks more like a Question n Answers portal.
This plugin is Mobile friendly and also SEO optimized. It supports only one classic theme with different customizable color styles, but don’t underestimate its appearance by words. The color styles help you to revamp the forum in a way that it matches your website and avoids it from being the odd one out.
You can also create different User groups and choose what each user can access.
Users can also edit their Profile with personal information and build a reputation in the forum by getting rated and receiving badges based on the number of posts.
The rest is for you to discover.
But, If you are looking for a free forum plugin then this is something you should give a try.
