bbPress Integration

  • jd.hartley


    I read somewhere that you were planning on this, Andy, but I just wanted to throw this out onto the new forums for further discussion.

    If I remember correctly (better not quote me on this) that you were planning on having a generic forum for the entire site, as well as group specific ones. Great idea–kind of like Facebook.

    I just had a few questions on how this would work, exactly. Would there be two or three installations, one for the “site forum”, and one with a bunch of categories for the different groups? Or would be it be on one forum with some others hidden?

    Really looking forward to the release. Good luck!

    I’ve talked with Sam a bit about this, and it seems the best way to do it would be to include one installation with every BuddyPress install.

    With one installation, a single forum could be generated for each new group created. I’m not sure about a “global” forum yet, but I assume the same could be done for that too.

    Also, will the bbpress dashboard be in the buddypress dashboard? Meaning, not 2 seperate installations?

    Thanks a bunch.




    Until the bbPress integration is fully done with BuddyPress I just integrated bbPress with WPMU. I’d speculate that the global forum should actually be the easiest to implement since bbPress can already integrate with MU’s user tables.

    I am new to bbPress but not WP and have BuddyPress moving along nicely. If BP already has forums for each group then why do we need bbPress? Added forum functionality vis a vis a replacement of the BP forums or do both coexist side by side in BP?

    wpmu/bp and bbpress exist together side-by-side. wpmu/bp doesn’t have a forum. Well, it does: bbpress. ;)

    If this insatll scheme that Andy speaks of is done…an included insatll with a forum generated for each group, is it safe to think that existing forums and post data will not be rendered moot and will nicely transfer over…if need be?
