Templatic has one called Q&A WordPress. Here is the demo.

When we post an empty anonymous reply, we get the following errors: The part of BBPress that's responsible for handling this, is the bbp_new_reply_handler() function, in the file /bbpress/includes/replies/functions.php. It contains these lines that are of interest to us: // User is anonymous if ( bbp_is_anonymous() ) { // Filter ...

There is no specific hook to filter the home text only, so we need to filter the whole breadcrumb and replace 'Home' with 'iGeek': function wpse_44597_custom_home_text_in_bbp_breadcrumb( $trail ) { return str_ireplace( 'Home', 'iGeek', $trail ); } add_filter( 'bbp_get_breadcrumb', 'wpse_44597_custom_home_text_in_bbp_breadcrumb' ); The above example has ...

[Edit - My original answer will only work in the upcoming BP 1.6] Versions of BuddyPress from 1.6 onwards function bbg_change_group_default_extension( $default ) { return 'forum'; } add_filter( 'bp_groups_default_extension', 'bbg_change_group_default_extension' ); Versions of BuddyPress prior to 1.6 For the moment, you'll have to use something like ...

The string is now in bbpress/includes/common/template-tags.php. Hook into bbp_no_breadcrumb, register a filter for gettext and change the text: add_filter( 'bbp_no_breadcrumb', 'wpse_44597_change_home_text' ); function wpse_44597_change_home_text( $translated, $original = '', $domain = '' ) { if ( 'bbp_no_breadcrumb' === current_filter() ) { ...

There are two possibilities, depending what theme you are using: 1 Locate call to bbp_breadcrumb or bbp_get_breadcrumb function in your template files and add arguments to your function, like this: $args = array( 'home_text' => 'iGeek' ); bbp_breadcrumb( $args ); // or bbp_get_breadcrumb( $args ), depending on which theme has been used in the first ...

WPMU's Q&A plugin has almost all the functionality you're looking for -- it uses HTML instead of Markdown. The admin panel lets you assign various capabilities to different roles, including the ability to edit others' questions and answers.

Use bbPress. It has a fully-built backend, and allows you to assign specific users to moderate the forum, and not access the rest of the website. It's the quickest, easiest, and probably most secure solution.

You can hook to translation filters of Wordpress to change any word or phrase. These filters are: gettext, ngettext and gettext_with_context: add_filter('gettext', 'change_bbpress_wording', 10, 3); add_filter('ngettext', 'change_bbpress_wording', 10, 3); add_filter('gettext_with_context', 'change_bbpress_wording', 10, 3); function change_bbpress_wording ($...

If you want the phpBB page to have the same look/feel of your site, there are two ways to do it. 1) Build a phpBB 'skin' with the elements you want. 2) Build a custom page template, and put the call to phpBB inside the page area of the template. Either way is probably a lot of work; phpBB and WP have totally different ways of 'skinning' a page. You might ...

There is currently no way to search within a specific plugin's support threads only and due to the complexity of WordPress's existing network, this is not likely to be addressed any time soon. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-search-these-forums/ However, one can search among a particular plugin's forum {topics} using a similar method to what @...

How about trying the WP-United plugin? It seems to do what you want: User integration: including single sign-on, synchronised profiles and avatars, and user management. Works with external registration modules such as social login plugins. Users in phpBB get accounts in WordPress and vice versa. Completely controllable and customisable by setting ...

To display a link to the Forum page in your menu, you should be able to add it in the Menu editor. To change the default forum role of new users, go into Settings->Forum, and change the Auto Role to the one you want.

BuddyPress is good for this as well. You can create public, private or hidden groups and control who can invite others. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress/ You have the option to have forums in each of the groups as well.

You can easily create private forums with the Simple:Press forum plugin. http://simple-press.com/ It can do a LOT more than just that, and for that reason might be overkill (not sure what other requirements you have), but if you are looking for a very flexible and powerful forum system, then I can recommend Simple:Press.

You can use this file as custom template file. http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Page_Templates Create a page for your menuentry and use your custom template file for this page.

This is possible to do in many few ways. How I would do it (I'm not suggesting it's the best way, it's just the way I think is the path of least resistance) is going to be to setup a page on your WordPress site and use a custom page template. That template can include everything you want to include, and then you can use curl, file_get_contents, or another ...

You could simply include the WordPress main file that it loads, wp-load.php or wp-blog-header.php at the very top of your forum's header file. If I'm correct, that should allow you to use WordPress functions inside your forum theme. Example, at the top of your header, assuming the forum folder is in the root WP folder: <?php include '../wp-load.php'; ?&...

late answer Another Plugin As you can read here, WP Event Ticketing is no longer supported, but has someone who took it over and made EventEspresso 1) out of it. At a first brief look, it seems to be well thought. PROS: I haven't found one. CONS: Point is, that the plugin adds tons of new tables. There're also (afaik) only activation functions to add ...

I recently created a WordPress site for a conference and I used the following plugins: Conference Schedule by Simon Wheatley Contact Form 7 + Contact Form to DB Extension to capture abstract submissions (although I never found an answer to my StackExchange question about how to capture dynamically added fields to the form, which would really have been very ...

I recently used http://wpeventticketing.com/ for WDC2011 in October, I didn't look to far in to all the options but I think it can do everything you're looking for. I'd suggest also using MailChimp for emailing attendees as it is far better than anything I've found to plugin to WordPress.

I have this plugin if you are interested. http://www.sabaidiscuss.com/ SabaiDiscuss is a premium questions and answers plugin for WordPress. The plugin features the ability for users to ask and answer questions similar to Stack Overflow or Yahoo Answers.
