    bbpress is a stand-alone product that powers this site.

    The BBpress user table actually is not that complicated and holds the same information as the wordpress user table.

    I integrated it into my wordpress site quite easily and am well impressed withthe results. CHECK the tables, you could even duplicate the update tables script in the WP register script to duplicate to the bbpress table.

    bbpress is the forum software. wordpress doesn't really do forum stuff.

    Exacty. Otherwise it would be just a load of comments threaded and would look and perform terrible.

    BBpress is exactly what it says on the tin. Very simple with the user and security in mind. Exactly what I (And this community) need from it.

    Do you NEED avatars and file uploads, signatures and private messages to get wordpress support? No. Its great just the way it is.

    Chan, if you need help integrating wordpress and bbpress, I would love to help. Let me know.

    I could do with some help too - I'd like people who register for my WP blog to also be registered for bbPress. Ideally I'd like them to only have to login once to be able to access both as well.

    Please mail cdh{{{{@}}}}sabooks.org.uk if you have any tips.

    bbPress is in early development stages, and to the best of my knowledge, there is not yet a way to integrate the two. Even if there was, bbPress is an alpha product so the application will change a lot during its development cycle.

    My advice is to be patient and wait for bbPress to become a more mature application.

    Future posts that ask for bbPress support in the WordPress forums should be deleted. Come on, there's a whole other site and mailing list for that.

    Thanks for the advice NuclearMoose - thanks also allusion, though there is a bit of crossover if you're asking about integrating bbPress and WordPress, isn't there?
