[resolved] Forums on single install? (10 posts)

    Hi all,

    I am looking to install a forum on a single install of WP. Can this be done? If so can anyone recommend a plug in that works? I don't mind if there is a premium attached as long as it does the job well.

    I use it on VOodooPress, a single install. Works great, lightweight, simple, and full integartion with WP.

    http://simple-press.com/
    I've used before. Has a lot more built in 'forum features', but I prefer simplicity, so I switched over

    Both work(ed) great for me

    Thanks for the quick response Voodoo!

    I maybe thick here in thinking, but doesn't bbpress require its own install? Or can this be linked to my current WP install?

    bbPress pre 1.x was a sep install

    If you look in the plugins directory, it is now 2.x. When 2.0 came out, it became a plugin. Just install like a normal plugin, and good to go!

    Also, bbPress plugins pon the website bbPress.org are for the stand alone 1.x version

    bbPress plugins found here in the plugin directory are (should) be compatible with the 2.x version

    Gotcha!

    Are you still using the forum? Do you have a link so I can see it in action?
