Re: BBpress setup through buddypress plugin?
Does the groups mean users, or disscusions? I want to set this up right, and kinda want it like i had stuff setup when i was using phpbb, where it was based on permissions, and roles, and you had certain, categories and subforums…..
Permissions are automatically assigned. Group admins / mods can edit forum posts. Group members can’t.
You cannot setup sub-forums and categories with BuddyPress’ internal forums. Think Facebook’s group and page forums.
also, how would i create themes for both? or where could i get themes for both that look similiar?

If you’re talking about a theme for the external version of bbPress, try this:
