New Installation (Fresh, no entries)

    Greetings,

    I have just installed a fresh WordPress/bbPress/buddypress site. However I want to use my original bbPress installation and not the buddypress version.

    I would like my URLs to look more like mysite/blogs and mysite/forums. Before I am thrown to subdomains as a solution, that is not an option.

    Regards,

    D

    hi

    You can use the existing/stand alone bbpress instllation.

    from the backend buddypress->forum setup->use existing bbpress installtion.

    Now if you have installed the buddypress on the root domain,and you want the url

    yoursite.com/forums for standalone bbpress forum,You will have to make some changes.

    Since with bp 1.1 yoursite.com/forums is used as the forum directory, you need to change that forum slug or install bbpress at some other url,say yoursite.com/some-forum

    Brajesh – sorry for being “stupid” but I did “use existing bbpress installation” and I got the message that it worked but BuddyPress would now use its own version of bbPress so I could delete everything except bb-config.php.

    In addition my forums are now at mysite.com/blogs/forums
