it wasn't so much of the very high standard of design aesthetic it was more the open and honesty of the feedback of it for me and the point of Navigating the admin center is good it may have had work to clean it up but i even still find myself asking where is this part agen and that is why JonB wrote on Nov 7th, 2012 at 5:36am:

Thanks for locating that one, Xnoddyx.  Its valuable in several different ways.

A. Its very positive on what we know about YaBB - once it's working, you learn to love all its features.  YaBB is a true master of flexibility.

B. Her comments (while quite gentle) about Installation and Administration make a very valid point. Installation could be easier, and the Admin Center has a lot for new Admins to learn.  Fortunately, those ideas/comments almost exactly mirror our plans in 'The Roadmap'.  Needed: a dead-on installer, and an improved Admin Dashboard.

C. If you look at the author's portfolio, you will see a very high standard of design aesthetic. If she has added YaBB to her toolkit, that is high praise.

I am probably going to contact her.

Thank again.
Cool
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

YABB vs WordPress Forum Plugins: Why I chose YABB for a discussion board

Posted on August 6, 2012


Discussion board, forum, bulletin boards. Whatever you call them, you’re talking about a page where your visitors or members start and reply to topics.

The software you pick has to do a lot besides publish the topics and replies. Think about other features you want like:
■formatting tools for the comments – bold, quote boxes, bullets, etc.
■a way to easily attach files to share
■easy way to add pictures
■easy way to add hyperlinks
■allow different levels of users
■allow users to get email notices of replies
■intuitive layout – easy for forum users to work with

As an administrator, you may also be looking for something that is easy to install and set up and run, something that isn’t expensive to buy and maintain, or something you can manage yourself without much help from webmaster, after setup.

Quick case study

I looked at (and tried some of) the following WordPress bulletin board plugins:
bbPress: It was easy enough to install (WordPress lets you install plugins with a few hand-held clicks). But what this client needed were rich text formatting options, the ability to upload files, and quick setup. There are plugins on this plugin (plugin extensions) to help with that. But I admit, bbPress for me had a steep learning curve in terms of setup. As others have said, it can take a bit more experience to set up.
