bbPress Forum Integration?

    I’m building a learning management site that uses BuddyPress and the Courseware plugin, as well. I really like the depth of features offered by the bbPress forum plugin, but I’m having some trouble integrating it with the Courseware forum application. Has anyone else done this before and have some advice? Right now it’s looking like I would still need to keep the courseware discussion forums for each class separate, but I’d much rather connect to the bbPress forums for this so that I can provide some nested categories.

    What bbPress version you are trying to integrate?
    Version 2.x is not yet integrated very well in the BuddyPress.
    Version 1.x is a one click installation!

    I have the same question. Threading is a requirement for our LMS, and BuddyPress forums do not support threaded replies. We’re using a fresh install of the latest versions of WordPress, BuddyPress, bbPress and Courseware.

    Just to clarify, I’d like to be able to use forums with threaded replies at both the global level and for groups. Right now it seems I can do it at the global level by using bbPress with the Threaded Replies plugin. That doesn’t work for group forums, which continue to use the BuddyPress forums. When turning off the switch for using Discussion Forums in the settings, as recommended in a LabZip video for BuddyPress/bbPress integration, I get an error message saying that they are required for Courseware and the switch must be left on.

    I don’t mind making a code change to switch Courseware to use bbPress forums, if that is possible and you can’t point me in the right direction.

    Versions: WordPress 3.4.2, BuddyPress 1.6.1, bbPress 2.2.2, bbPress Threaded Replies 0.4.3, BuddyPress Courseware 0.9.7.
