The California Literary Review site wanted to create a forum to promote discussion about their featured books, films, and other reviewed media.
Front End Description
I had worked with this client before with their WordPress theme so when building the bbPress theme, I was able to resuse most of the WordPress layout and CSS and then add in and customize the existing bbPress XHTML/CSS. I used the basic layout and then added colors and styles that were clean and minimal.
Back End Description
The client wanted a simple, easy to use and manage forum and he was very familiar with WordPress so I recommended bbPress.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
bbPress gets better and better with each release.
