    Thanks @aces

    I’ve been trying your suggestions and am getting closer I think, but I’m still a bit out of my league so wondering if you or anyone else can help a bit more please.

    In the absence of anything in my child theme, should the WooCommerce button CSS always override the BuddyPress default.css? ….Or are there ways that the BuddyPress default.css can win out? For example if both have the same named a.button…etc. definitions which may conflict with each other, which one wins out?

    Here is the a.button code from WooCommerce to compare with 1720 of bp’s default.css. I don’t understand it well enough to work out the conflict, or how to hack either to fix it, or better still how to add something into my child theme to fix it. Any ideas gratefully received?

    ` /* =Buttons
    ————————————————————– */

    a.button, button.button, input.button, #respond input#submit, #content input.button {
    font-size: 100%;
    margin: 0;
    line-height: 1em;
    cursor: pointer;
    position: relative;

    .vertical_gradient( @secondary, darken( @secondary, 10 ) );

    Here is a link to a post I started on the WooCommerce forum which gives some more info about how I am working around this conflict at the moment, whilst still trying to get a fix –

    Many thanks for any help and I hope it helps some others too.

    Thanks @modemlooper. I have been asking at Woo Themes but no reply yet. If I hear anything I will post here too, to help others.

    However, these IE8/9 problems with the WooCommerce buttons go away when I switch to twentytwelve theme and return when I switch back to BuddyPress Default Theme (I’m now on the latest BuddyPress 1.7 version and the problem is still there). So I’m guessing that the fix needs to be done in the BuddyPress Default Theme to make it work with WooCommerce (rather than the other way around)- would you agree with this logic?

    Thanks for your reply @Hugo. I did also post on the bbPress forum as you suggested, but unfortunately no reply. Are you able to help me please, even with a quick pointer? – as I am stuck on this one.

    I just need to find out how to get the main bbPress topic id from a Buddypress group>forum>topic+replies page.

    I need this for a function to show each topic’s WPSEO meta title and meta description for the appropriate Buddypress group>forum>topic+replies pages (rather than the current BuddyPress metadata). Once I get it working, I intend to share my function with the community, as quite a few people seem to be after this. So I hope you can help us all please.

    Thanks r-a-y. Have you seen the same problem then? I just want to make sure that it is a bug before I post a bug report, so I don’t waste the developers’ time.

    Has anyone managed to turn on the new bbPress forums in legacy BuddyPress groups? (….including legacy BuddyPress groups which didn’t have an old-style forum?)

    Or is this a bug?

    Same thing happens to my site.

    Thanks @djPaul

    I also read another recent thread: http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/bbpress-2-1-and-buddypress-1-6-beta-2/?#post-134036 and commented there. It seems likely that there are a few bugs to be sorted out to get this working.

    A particular thing I had missed that might help someone else to get bbP2.1 forums working a bit at least with BP1.6RC1 is that, as well as diabling BP Group Fourms I had untick “Discussion Forums” in WP-admin> settings> buddypress> components (which I find counter-intuitive).

    Thanks for your comments here @jeaz, @newpress and @PaulGibbs They really helped me out and confirmed that I wasn’t just being really stupid! Yes, I concur with you, I’m getting the same issues you raise above with WP 3.4.1, bbPress2.1 and BP1.6RC1

    It’s looking like the new forums will be excellent and useful, so many thanks to all the developers. But at the moment the forum admin between BP and bbP has a some limiting bugs and is also confusing to me. I’d like to help out by testing but, for me at least, I feel that it is best to wait until the developers have another crack at the integration first.

    Thanks @Paul Gibbs. I’ve imported my old group forums/topics into bbP2 like you suggested above and the import bit seems to work OK – they appear in the bbP forum list and can be read from there.

    But when I create a new BP group forum (via group admin front end) or add a new topic to a BP group forum, nothing shows up in the bbP forum listing (as I assume it should do – am I right?). Similarly, when I add a topic to the bbP forum for a particular BP group, it doesn’t show up in the BP group forum accessed from the BP group page. So BP group forums and bbP forums are still acting completely independently of each other and not integrated at all.

    Perhaps it is a bug? What would you advise? Has anyone else achieved proper integration?

    (Note that I did disable the Groups Forum component inside the BuddyPress components setting page in wp-admin as you said above.)

    Thanks for your reply @Paul Gibbs. Yes, I am using bbPress 2.1, BuddyPress 1.6 RC1 and WordPress 3.4.1.

    I’ve done what you say above but I still see no changes on my site. The group forums are still working fine the same as before and the bbPress sitewide forum is still working fine the same as before. But I can’t see any signs of integration between the two.

    What should I see? For example, should the group forums be listed in the main bbPress forum too, under the “group forums parent” selected in WP-Admin>Settings>Forum that you refer to above?

    Hi Paul,

    I’ve updated to BP1.6-RC1 and am currently testing this out on my site to try to help out. Does bbPress 2 currently work for group forums on BP1.6-RC1 or do we need to wait for the BP 1.6 proper to be released?

    In any case, I’d appreciate some guidance on how to integrate my previous (BP1.5.6) group and sitewide BBPress forums together. I understand that BP1.6 does this, but whatever I’ve tried so far, they still stay separate.

    Are there any BP1.6-RC1 release notes on forums (or all the improvements for that matter) telling me what is new so I can focus my testing and help out better?

    Many thanks.
