bbPress + Buddypress integration – Same look and feel?

  • Murphygonzalez


    I am sorry if this topic is redundant, if it is, point me in the right direction please.

    I am trying to integrate my bbPress forum so that it looks like an integrated part of my buddypress site. I can see that it is done on the site but I don’t know how.

    Any ideas?

    This is a big question that will get you a big answer. I’d suggest taking a look around this forum and the forums also, as there are pages and pages of discussion and documentation to help you through this. Many of which are stickies so you can’t miss them. :)

    Manoj has made a BuddyPress style theme that matches the bphome buddypress theme, so that’s something that will help you. I just release the BuddyBar plugin to help get the BuddyBar in the forums area. There’s lots of people contributing. :)



    Thanks for your response!

    I will look further into the forum. I tried installing the BuddyBar but I couldn’t get it to work. I think part of my problem is that I didn’t do the deep integration deep enough. I am going to try it again.



    Yes you need deep integration for the BuddyBar bbPress plugin.

    Make sure you follow the instructions in the readme.txt.

    Also for the forum look… unless you’re using the default BuddyPress look + Manoj’s bbPress theme (, you’ll have to basically create a new theme that matches your WP/BuddyPress theme.

    There’s no really good way around it I’m afraid.




    Thanks for the link. That helps a lot.
