gForums 是一款收费的论坛主题，不需要使用论坛 ，完全是利用主题的，轻松把你的 WordPress 博客打造成一个简单的论坛，而且对搜索引擎非常的友好!
PS: 一般利用 wordpress 架构论坛都需要安装第三方插件，例如 simple press 和 mingle forum 等，而且这些插件对中文的搜索引擎收录都不带好。
Want to run a forum with the Worlds best CMS Solution aka WordPress? Then here’s an Excellent News for all of them who have been waiting for a decent solution. After Searching the internet for days with no perfect solution(Plugins are many..Wp-Forum/Forum server etc., but all had one or themajor drawbacks when compared) to run a Forum with WP CMS, recently I noticed a brief classified abt Gforums & was delighted at first sight. It is a normal wordpress theme like any other out there, but with a totally different purpose. Normal WordPress themes help you to run a website for a magazine, ecommerce store or just a simple blog, however Gforums was built to turn your wordpress site into a forum. Technically speaking, with the Gforums theme your Blog categories will become Forum categories, Blog Sub-Categories will become Forum Sub-Categories and so on..you get the idea!
This theme will help you turn any WordPress blog into a discussion board.
It's extremely simple to use and works right out of the box.
The theme comes with a specially designed members page and member profiles.
You have a settings page in your WordPress dashboard from where you can control the functionality of the theme.
At the top of the website you can place a customizable image slideshow. If you feel certain topics deserve more exposure then place them in the slideshow.
Discussion board look
The topics will look just like a discussion board even do you are using a blogging software.
Features for users
Users will be able to reply to the topics or add new topics themselves. You can decide if you want unregistered user to have the capability of adding new topics or if you want the visitor to register first.
Signatures and user location fields
All users can add their own html signatures and a user location that will show up under their avatars.
Your discussion board will always display in the footer the total number of topics and replies along with the total number of users who registered on the site.
Every user will have under their avatar the total number of topics they have started and how many times they replied to other topics.
