I have upgraded my WP blog to 2.5 and would like to integrate a bbPress forum. Before I do so, I would like to hear from people who have done this and could give me a few tips on how to go about it.
A few things on my mind:
1- Is it better to use a separate database for the forum (which I would prefer if possible)?
2- Should bbPress be installed in a WP sub-folder?
3- Is there a plugin or setting which would prevent users to register via the forum (disable forum registration) and would redirect the user to the WP registration panel?
Any advice would be well appreciated.
