We're considering replacing our current Simple-Press forums with XF while keeping our WordPress front page (ClassiPress theme). The front page is, more or less, a classifieds area with additional content and as such it requires that our members be signed in to post and access classifieds.
We've had a bad experience with a vBulletin/WordPress bridge utility so we're reluctant to try another software mismatch that relies on the bridge to keep it running.
Is there a history of the WP/XF bridge being stable and well supported?
Do WordPress sites generally mix well with XF?
