Re: How to configure Bbpress for group forum and site wide forum?
Well, as the developer for http://gorgeousgamers.com/beta/ I figured I should answer this question.
I have 2 instances running of bbpress, 1 is .com/beta/forum/ and the other is in a different location. Currently it is not safe to combine them, as private groups would be visible to all members, which is still an issue but would be harder to find these hidden forums.
The menu bar, which lists the general forum is actually as simple as uncommenting the code in the header.php file in home theme.
I’m still not sure if I should theme bbpress to match the site, or modify a copy of the groups forum tools to allow general discussion. This wouldn’t be a quick development, but would be easier down the road as the theme develops.
