Re: Best way to integrate bbPress forums (not group forums)
Burt, this is the first time you yelled at me.
At least I know I’m doing the only option available to me at this point.
But… I was looking at Simple:Press the other day. http://simplepressforum.com/ It loads in a WP page and has more permissions/admin capabilities. Because it works as a WP plugin, the BuddyBar is in use there. In addition, because it is a plugin, you retain your regular sidebar/theme without having to do any tweaks — no making a separate forum installation “look” like it is the same.
I don’t know, looks pretty good. I set it up and everything and it worked fine in WPMU. Then I went back to bbPress. Was that stupid? The reason being that I’m worried that BP will support a general forum with bbPress one day and I want to stay in the loop if so, not wander off on another trail.
