    BBpress with Buddypress is a great combination. I would look into themes that have these 2 integrated already. I run a few websites with this setup and it works great.

    Buddy Press is best one for WP. most of the paid themes will support Buddy Press.

    PhpBB is a piece of shit, if you haven't done much work on it I'd uninstall it.

    Interested why you asked for recommendations then went for a software no-one recommended whilst ignoring the one that was recommended repeatedly?

    Actually, I have removed WordPress completely from my domain and freshly installed phpBB. See here http://www.webtophosting.co.uk/
    But I'm unable to add an advertising banner at footer.
