Integrate with IPB forum?

    I am considering buddypress for a community project of mine, but I will be using IPB 3 as core for discussions (for many reasons…) and I wonder how much WPMU/BP differ from WP in terms of integration?

    In WP you can set most of the database fields in /wp-includes/pluggable.php and then tell WP which database to pull these from. Is that possible with WPMU/BP?

    I mean to use

    define(‘CUSTOM_USER_TABLE’, $table_prefix.’my_users’);

    define(‘CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE’, $table_prefix.’my_usermeta’);

    to alter the database to use the IPB usertables….

    Hi, I want to integrate IPB 3 with wordpress too. My thing may be a bit different though. What I want to do is instead of using bbpress for the group forums, I would love for it to use ipb 3 instead. Is there any way of supporting ipb with buddypress? I have been looking for a while a way to do that.

    @Trekkiemelissa: At this point, it’s impossible to do. You would have to hard code it in with another plugin or modify the core files.
