  1. Hello,
    I would like to find a plug-in capable of creating a private member area where we can follow online, thanks to our account, the progress of the products deposited in after-sales service in our physical store. With a private chat box and a timer.

    You have any ideas ?

  2. hello, thanks for the article
    I have a question. I have tried 2 of these plagiarisms but not found the wealth of functionalities that I can have on my forums created at Forumotion (free forums service). So I gave up the idea of ​​using a WP plugin but the question arises: is there a clean way to integrate a forumactif forum into a WordPress site? Or do I have to keep my forums as they are and just associate them with the sites via a link?
    Thank you for your answers

    1. Good evening Mathieu,

      Sorry for the late reply, we are very busy these days creating a mega-platform that will do good for internet users.

      To come back to your question, sorry but our answer is only limited to the subject of the article. I am therefore unable to tell you how to integrate this type of forums.


    2. Hello,
      This is the first time I have heard of forumacitf. So I never considered integrating it with WordPress. I cannot comment on the question because I do not know if there is a plugin or tool that facilitates the integration of forumactif on WordPress.

    3. Hello,
      Forumactif and bbPress are not in my opinion for the consistent time. You need to consider associating with a link as you say.
