    Does anyone know of any good forum plugin for WordPress or any way to integrate vBulletin or SMF with WordPress?

    I've searched, but the only thing I could find was XDForum, which is pretty buggy and still needs a lot of work.

    Does anyone here know of any good forum plugins for WP, or any way to integrate SMF/vBulletin into WordPress?

    Thanks

    I myself have been looking for something similar. I believe Matt, the guy behind WP, is working on something but it's far from WP compatible.

    Something should be coming along fairly soon though since I know a lot of people are after this particular feature.

    I have found a couple of them:

    - xDforum
    - WP-Forum
    - bbPress

    which one of these plugins is the best?

    Trial and error I'd suggest. I'm not willing to change from my separate PhpBB forum just yet.

    Yes, but bbPress doesn't have a nice interface.... I wonder is there a better template for that bbPress?

    I think you have got it right, Arkserver. WP-forum is very similar to vbulletin, and I think it's the closest you can get without having to install a forum engine.

    The release seems unmaintained. It's been a few month since the developer released that version

    Looking for a plugin. I'm looking a plugin that will offer more management in the sidebar for categories.
    Right now under my categories it shows the name of each category with a number that shows the number of posts to that topic.
    I think an additional feature would be nice like having an arrow next to the number so a visitor could click and view the post titles.
    This way if the subject interested them they could go to the post and read it.

    Sort of like a nav menu for each category section.

    Categories

    Articles (4) "arrow"
    Books (6) "arrow"
    Resources (3) "arrow"
    Recipes (2) "arrow"

    It there a plugin like this or could one be made?
