How will bbPress updates work in BP 1.1+?

    Just curious: Now that bbPress is more deeply integrated in BP, how will bbPress upgrades work? Will admins get a message if their bbPress install is out of date? Will there be one-click upgrades, or will the files in BP’s bbpress folder have to be manually overwritten?

    You won’t have to worry about it as the internal version of bbPress will upgrade when you upgrade BuddyPress.

    How about bbpress plugins? Do they work, too?

    Some will work by putting the bbPress plugin in the /mu-plugins/ folder.

    BuddyPress’ embedded version of bbPress does not have a bbPress backend, so try using bbPress plugins that do not have an admin options page.

    (I’d try _ck_’s plugins since most of her plugins do not have an admin options page)

    Other trickier ones will need to be ported over.

    Hello,

    I have WPMU 2.8.4.a en Buddypress 1.1.1 I try to use the Allow Images plugin (no admin page) (http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/allow-images/). I made a folder my-plugins (under wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress) and placed the file allow-images.php in this folder, with no result. Is there a way to activate this plugin?

    Moving the bbPress dir to mu-plugins seems me tricky? What if there is a new Buddypress release?

    Thanks for your help!
