@ChrisClayton — Thanks for pointing that out! Yeah that was just bad wording on my part. Originally I should have wrote:
“you SHOULD disable the Discussion Forums component” vs “you need…”
Sorry for the confusing wording!
Anyway, yeah I understand you can run both at the same time. I’m just saying if you’re not using Group forums, then it’s less hassle to simply disable that component. And that it should be included in the codex to only tick the Discussion component if you’re going to be using Group forums .
Facebook book login integration can be done with the WP-FB-Autoconnect plugin. I have tried it myself and it is a solid plugin, however FB avatar support is a tad wonky.
Really will depend on what your needs are. I am actually looking for answers to mapping profile fields between FB and BuddyPress so that I can roll my own integration.
Yes I understand you can map the forum’s component to a different page or change the bbPress settings away from “forums” but that isn’t necessary if you ONLY want site wide forums. It’s just easier to disable the Discussion Forum component in BuddyPress settings since that only affects Group Forums.
@isisathletics if all you want are site wide forums, then first turn off the Discussion Forum component in BuddyPress settings since this option is for group forums, then continue with site wide forum installation.
Alright, I figured out what the problem is. @SeannyFunco the tip that WPMU mentions is how it’s supposed to be setup.
I think the codex needs to be updated to say that if you’re only using Site Wide Forums, you need to disable the Discussion Forums component since this is meant for Groups integration.
Thanks @SeannyFunco I also saw that post and tried it prior to posting here. I am thinking I’ll give the group forums a try since it seems to work well here.
