    Is there any way I can join bbpress and wordpress into a single looking website?

    What is so special about bbPress?
    Only the fact that it can use same DB as WordPress?

    There is one theme that I know of that has a ported version to bbPress, the K2 theme.



    bbPress is awesome. It is more geared towards bloggers than it is towards forum type people. It isn't as bloated, it runs fast, and a lot easier to use than something like PHPbb.

    There's a pile of plugins mentioned in this post of Spencerp's. It's it a bit old, but I imagine still worth a look.

    Thanks for sharing my link Handy. :) Actually, that post is a little outdated, I had installed a handful of other plugins after those listed there even.

    However, I'll be working on the forums again tonight, so, they won't be up and running. I'll have to gather up all the plugins information(s) that I had used, and reedit the blog post then...

    Might be done tonight yet, might not though either. I'll post back here with an update then. ;)

    Hey flatworm, did you get bb-press working?

    If not, I know why I can help if you need it.

    I saw your problem on your other post that was closed yesterday, and I know exactly what happened if you are still having issues with the forum installation.

    Besides what I had listed in that blog post, here are the other ones I have used...

    Allow Images - Description: Allows <img /> tags to be posted in your forums. The image must be a png, gif or jpeg.

    Memberlist - Description: Displays all active members.

    Support Forums - Description: Changes the forum to a support and adds functionality to mark topics resolved, not resolved or not a support question.

    BBPress Private Messaging - Description: Integrates Private Messages into BBPress.

    Comment Quicktags for bbPress - Description: Inserts a quicktag toolbar on the post topic form. js_quicktags is slightly modified version of Alex King's newer Quicktag.js plugin modified from original found here.

    Post Notification - Description: Sends an Notification email if there's a new post to an favorite topic.

    However, I was using another version of the Post Notification, that gave you emails of new replies on ALL, and any posts. One was specially done up for my request here:

    I had the Forum Categories enhancement installed, but, since I'm running bbPress Trunk (bbPress 1.0-alpha) I can't really use the Forum Categories enhancement, because there seems to be work going on for this anyway, via the core.

    I'm not going to bother posting the Ticket link for it. Besides that, that should be all the ones I have had running before. Good luck!

    Oh, before I forget, I had also integrated the latest MediaWiki 1.10-alpha, bbPress, and WordPress...

    Blog post about it as well:

    I hope this helps someone too. ;)
