bbpress and buddypress

  • firetag


    I know this has been posted a million times, but I can’t find any solutions that I even understand. What I want to do is do an external install of bbpress, but I would still like to use my default theme for it ( I only need one forum no group forums). Is this possible? Or am I going to have to learn how to style bbpress too in order to have the extra features that the external install comes packaged with? Also does anyone know if bbpress’ full functionality ever be deeply integrated into a 1 2 buddypress install?

    You could create one group that all people join when they register.

    Use DJPaul’s Welcome Pack plugin for that:

    Otherwise go the external bbPress route, and yes, you’ll need to theme it.


    Forgot that Paul changed his plugin so it sends out group invites, instead of auto joining groups.

    If you want to make Paul’s plugin automatically join groups.

    Change the following lines in the Welcome Pack plugin from:

    groups_invite_user( array( 'user_id' => $new_user_id, 'group_id' => $group_id, 'inviter_id' => $group->creator_id ) );
    groups_send_invites( $group->creator_id, $group_id );


    groups_join_group( $group_id, $new_user_id );

    I should say I haven’t tried this, but it should work.



    yeah I’m just going to have to them it seperately. lol I was just trying to save myself some work…figured i’d ask…anyway thanks for the great post man and that welcome pack plugin looks great.
