Running 2 Copies of BBPress

    Hi,

    I’ve just installed the latest BuddyPress, and also activated the one-click-install of BBPress – which to my supprise was a complete doddle.

    I like the way its integrated into the group section of buddy press… However I also like the idea of running a traditional style forum as well.

    So in effect i would like BBPRESS seperate to the integrated one-click-install.

    Is this possible? and if so any pointers?

    Cheers

    Thanks Jeff.

    I’ve followed that link and got stuck a bit.

    I have the one-click-install working without a problem.

    I then uploaded BBPRESS to a new directory off the root (called it /forum/). browsed to that directory and didnt get taken to an install page….

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    The missing piece is deep integration. There are a number of threads on these forums about how to do just that. It is not easy.

    Thanks for the help Jeff.

    The reason I posted is due to not finding anything definitive in the search… all results I have found on “deep integration” are either people saying you need it or are they using it….

    however one of the results gave me an idea.

    What if I keep bbpress as the group forum. but then use simplepress to handle the more traditional forum?

    That way im guessing it would be treated as 2 seperate forums – all i would need to do then is share the user data?
