Re: how to access to bbpress admin from buddypress??
With a std install of BP 1.2 you don’t have the ability to activate bbPress plugins, create forums independent of groups, etc. As of this date BP 1.2 only offers limited bbPress functionality from within BP. If you want more functionality you have to copy bb-config.php per the post at the URL below and then access the bbpress at http[yoursite]/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress
If you want to separate non-group forums from group forums so that people don’t see group forums when viewing a list of forums (as seen in a typical standalone install of bbPress) then one way to do that is to do a second install of bbpress. Easiest way is to install BP 1.2, activate the forums in the admin panel, then go copy the /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress directory to a new location within your site – and be sure to also copy bb-config.php from the bp-forums directory and then edit the file so that it has the correct settings. That’s a simplified explanation, meaning there’s a bit more to it and you need to at least be semi-familiar with installing and administering bbpress software. For example, you probably should have the second copy of bbPress use its own db tables, etc.
