Does bbpress have hosting? I am not techie need something simple and hosted. Surprised there's a dearth of options out there
I think Muut is still a great option, and, for me, everything is working well. If you want bbPress you can use any host that works with wordpress.
Does it still work? Yes, for the most part. Would I start from scratch with it? No. More concerning is the fact that they have zero staff for a paid service. You are basically taking a change on freeware if you adopt muut now, otherwise you are going to be missing the support for it.
I like seeing everyone's use cases for Muut however, and I use muut.io extensively. I can vouch that there is nothing "new" about it anymore as the banner states. No new features or improvements in well over two years.
My reply back from them said they have devs working on stuff. I think it's just Monica and probably some devs in India or something. Try messaging Monica on the main page about Slack, and see what the updates are. I am mostly amazed they haven't even bothered to reply and give people any sense of relief in this thread here. I did tell them about it. I don't mind paying them something, but perhaps they should lower their fees if they are not going to reply to people and fix stuff.
Thanks for the responses - I agree if you're a going concern throw us a bone every month or something.
What are you using it for? If it's just for comments, maybe try switching to https://fastcomments.com. You can migrate your data over.
Most people uses Muut as a forum, not comments. It is not the same thing.
I'm using it as a forum and was going to go live when all this CV stuff started. Was looking and Ning but it's way different, I'm looking for minimal effort as I'm not a comp guy. Any other suggestions? Doesn't seem like there are any real equals to must that I've found yet.
I think I'm just gonna use Slack - cy'all
Not the same. Slack is not good to asynchronous debates, Muut is much much better.
agree, but it is dying. No one is even responding.
I do not think so, because everything works perfectly. Obviously, I would like to have the interaction that we had in the past, but other virtual tools live almost automatically, like many Google products.
Not true. Slack integration is broken, yet they still advertise it as a feature. They've said no timeline on fix....
That's just one thing, and the problem was with Slack, not Muut. All the resources used in my forum are ok.
Muut built (and says they support) Slack. Slack updated the API. Muut did not. The fact that the API would be changing has been known for a long time. Failure is on Muut. They still say in the sales info that they support it - so why not take that down?
Still nothing two months later. I'm sure COVID isn't going to help matters either. Ugh. I am praying for any sign of life from the company at this point.
Monica has gotten back to me every time I've sent a message in It takes a couple days, but she has. Interesting.
Apart from this issue of Slaak, which really needs to be corrected (or at least removed from the structure of the plans), everything is going very well. I see no reason to complain so much.
Update: Monika has responded to my email from yesterday! She seems to be back, and reassuring that everything is up and running. Hopefully she returns to the forums in short order, but I suggest trying to email for contact.
