[resolved] Getting this forum as plugin/add-on (11 posts)

    Is this forum available as a plugin/add-on? I've looked at bbpress, but I'm not sure bbpress and this forum are the same thing.

    Also, integrating this forum (or bbpress) with wp, so existing users don't have to register twice would be very nice. Could anyone point me in the right direction? bbpress itself is hardly documented and googling for things like "forum plugin" or "wordpress forum plugin" give me forums ON plugins not a forum plugin. :|


    Added: clicking my own tags sent me in the right direction: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/76973?replies=13
    I'll read some more first. Thanks.

    You want to google for "wordpress bbpress", that should get you going. At least as far as combining wp users and bbpress users.

    I'm currently hooking the two up for a customer's site. Maybe it's my apache/php setup, but I require extra work to let the bbpress users actually log into wp -- it involves a bit of code to update the proper wordpress tables.

    Also, I can't go ahead and include the wordpress wp-config.php file. This might be a plugin issue on my side. So this doesn't work for me. Yet.

    (small update: I've disabled most plugins, but the error logs tell me that bbpress and wordpress try to define the same functions. In other words: forget function integration. Bummer.)

    @dille: thanks for sharing your info.

    I tried the same (and other) instructions: doesn't work for me either.

    Would be very nice if bb-press would be available as a plugin or something. I don't like editing the "core" wp-files - you have to redo a lot manually stuff after a WP upgrade.

    I'll be keeping a close eye on the bb-press site...

    @ryanfitzer: Wow! Looks very nice indeed. I do get an error though:

    We couldn't retrieve a list of forums.

    I'll have a look if I can find out what's causing this... If I can get this thing to work, that would be perfect. Integration A+ :)

    Vanilla is a plugin forum for WP that integrates easily:

    I've installed RS-discuss and so far it's doing a wonderful job! I've also added Dutch translations for those who need 'em. You can pick 'm up at: http://www.sargant.com/blog/wordpress-plugins/rs-discuss/#i18n

    But its not happening a lot at RS Discuss - is it? Seems like the most of the others got a more active developer spirit.

    Sad though - cause its the most beautifull forum crafted s for wordpress.

    Vanilla is not a WP PLugin :P

    Google search for WP Forum. This is moving forward faster then XD Forum in terms of development cycle.

    I wish bbpress was a plugin as well...

    Well, it's not a plugin, but it's worth reading this:
