    The bbpress forum install isn’t part of the admin menu. You can put it there by modifying the menu though. I’m guessing that the second question means that you’d like your bbpress theme to look like your bp theme. Yes, you can. You have to create a new bbpress theme for yourself.

    You can find or create any theme you want for bp and bbpress. There isn’t a bbpress theme that looks like the default bp theme yet. As far as I know.

    bbPress is an absolute pain to work with. Its themeing process is unlike the rest of the Automatic family, very idiosyncratic and frustrating if you try to tackle it from scratch.

    But…

    I discovered that Refueled.Net makes a \\\”blank\\\” bbPress theme that is a snap to customize. Head over to: http://www.refueled.net/free-bbpress-themes/ and install one of those, then go in and make your custom mods there.

    I concur with Burtadsit’s statement. I wonder why Automattic does not take on SimpleForum and make it the default WP forum… It integrate WP seamlessly, no need to be themed and is rich featured.

    @Renefyrster: I’m not in my home computer where I have access to my codes but I remember that I modify the header.php file…

    There’s a part in that file where you will see listed all buttons of the top menu enclosed in LI tags… Those tags are only shown if the functions they are trying to expose to the user do exists in your installation (I mean, if you have not installed Groups module, the Group link won’t be showed and so on).

    Well… You need to do something similar with you forum link… I remember I did something like this:

    <?php

    if (function_exists(‘any_bbpress_function_I_cant_remember_any_at_the_momento)) { ?>

    <li <?php if (is_page(‘Forums’)) echo ‘class=”selected”‘; ?>>

    < a href=”url to your blog”>Forums

    <?php { ?>

    This code might be wrong because I don’t have the right code here… but that’s the idea…

    Hope it helps.

    Before we go to far with this what menu are you talking about? The admin bar menu or the member/home theme’s button bar menu?

    I would also like to add a ‘Forums’ tab to the main menu.
