    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.

    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?

    Here we are. That’s 100% un customized, I haven’t had time to work on any theming yet

    wpcandy.com uses it as well for their forums

    Works a treat!

    Thanks again for sharing Voodoo.

    Sweet! Glad to help!

    Ooops misleading reply there mate!

    The site you shown me works a treat, I am yet to install and start down the forum journey.

    Great and timely advice very much appreciated all the same.

    coolio! bbpress.org has a fairly active support forum of their own, should you have detailed questions about the plugin
