    Are these comments closed now? I left to come out here the other day, and I don’t see it, in fact I don’t see any from later than July of last year. On the off chance that I didn’t hit the submit button somehow, my question was for the admins: is Groups Forums based on BBPress? If not, is it about the same level of complexity as BBPress?

      Hey David, open as ever, just replied to your previous comment. Sometimes it takes a bit as we have lots around the site 🙂
