requires installation of ForumWP to function. It comes in a free version that does not allow Post Moderation, photos, subscription all which are very vital to a functioning Forum. Or pay $120 a year for it.

I activate the plugin and a notice shows up saying I have to activate the plugin. What just I do? Uninstall now.

Deux jours Γ  installer reinstaller et tenter de faire fonctionner ce plugin !. Le mieux est d’indiquer dΓ¨s le dΓ©part que c’est une version qui ne fonctionne qu’avec Ultimate Member payant au lieu de faire perdre du temps Γ  tout le monde Γ  essayer de l’installer. TrΓ¨s déçu et DΓ‰GOUTΓ‰ !!. πŸ™

Correct me if I’m wrong. It is expected that all plugins listed on WP platform to work at least with some basic functions. What’s the point of listing a plugin here that requires another commercial plugin and a paid subscription from the author to work beside using this platform as a free marketing tool? You get free marketing, so at least offer something free in return, no?
