Go to the "bbPress Integration" page in the "Settings" area of the WordPress administration area. Here you will need to supply the full URL of your bbPress forum.

If your bbPress plugins directory is not in the standard location because you have moved it by defining BB_PLUGIN_URL in your bbPress config file, then you need to supply that full URL as well. If your plugins directory is in the standard location, then you can leave this field blank.
