Support » Plugin: bbPress » fork for bbPress : a classified ads system. Some questions !

  • Hi guys !
    It’s been a while since i’m developping my own classified ads system.
    I made a lot of work, until…
    I saw that the BEST solution would be -of course!- to tune bbPress and transform it to make a classified ads system.

    There is a lot of possibilities, and bbPress is well coded so it’s easy to use action & filter hooks to tune it like I would like :

    -changing the post types used, changing the languages, …

    I start duplicating bbPress and changing stuff in it.

    My question is :

    I see how easy it would be to just change some stuff and make a new plugin of it.
    But it’s not a good idea : bbPress will continue to evoluate and I will have to hardcode every update in my own plugin.
    I think there is enough hooks to build my plugin on the top of it without having to duplicate all the code.

    The thing is :
    I would need to have TWO bbPress (plugin version) installations.
    One for my forums; and one for my ads.

    That means two admin menus; hooks activating only when loading the ads and not the forum, …

    Do you think this is possible and how ?

    Thanks a lot.
