    Hi,

    Recently I have started my own forum to the telecom related discussion and used bbPress (from Wordpress creators) and facing a problem in user registration.
    SEMrush
    A new user registration is not happening at this site (Forums.TelecomDiary.com) and since 1 month I was breaking my head in forums with no results.

    If someone had any clue how to solve this issue plz help me or suggest me whether I can go with bbPress or phpBB. But, bbPress themes and plugins are very cool....

    I am in confusion.. plz help me

    BBPress is still to much in it's infancy to be even classified in the same level as PHPBB... though in time that will change. Bank for the buck, PHPBB will be the choice of champions.

    I've used BBPress but i have found it to be a little too simple. Not enough features

    I'd go with phpBB, BBPress is limited in the feature sides. phpBB is a much more stronger platform to build your community on.

    I'm not sure I understand your problem. Are you saying it's not possible to register on your site (I notice it says "registration disabled" or that people just aren't registering?
