My Web site is currently information based, meaning that I write the content of the web pages so that they convey important ideas about what the Christian Faith is all about. This site also provides free access to the pdf file of essays I wrote, for example about how to understand the Bible today, and about my own struggle in understanding some important aspects of the Christian life.
I was thinking of using bbPress and perhaps also some of BuddyPress complementary functionalities to provide some ways for site visitors in general and people I know in particular to be able to interact with some of those contents. But before I start trying out these WordPress plug-ins, I would be interested in starting a discussion to find out if some of you have better suggestions as to how I should proceed and what tools I should be using.
The reason I am asking is that a while back I received some very good answers in a forum that has recently shut down "The Help Me Code Club". Several users seemed to suggest that it was better to use a stand alone forum software and to use a bridge for the interaction with WordPress. And many participants seemed to mention the same software over and over again, but I don't remember which it was, and the information is no longer available on the forum that I got this information from.
So I'm starting afresh, except that I now have a little bit more free time to invest for implementing the solutions that seem best.
