Compatible Forums that work with Buddypress

    @rpatwall1206

    Hello all. I know there have been several discussions regarding creating a forum in buddypress that is not attached to groups. That actually works ok, but this is no longer acceptable as a general forum. As admin I created a general group for different topics, this is not working out like a regular forum because of the unavailability or multiple categories that are independent of groups.

    So after reading the struggles that others are experiencing with this buddypress/bbpress/group collabo I ventured out to find a compatible second forum solution. Although Simple-press is working on a BuddyPress/simple-press integration plugin. http://simple-press.com/buddypress-integration-plugin/ However, it appears you have to pay $39.00 to learn how that is working out. If you go to support and type in buddypress and click on the first item “buddypress beta” you are directed to a pay membership page. Don’t really want to buy a membership for a plugin I don’t have or is not yet available.

    So I am asking if anyone has any news or ideas as to what other forums/bulletin boards may work as a second independent forum within a Buddypress site?

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated…Thanks.

    I want a forum that is not attached to groups. I want a regular normal forum. When I installed buddypress bbpress was came as the forum. It was not until I tried to set up a forum without groups that I realized I couldn’t. I need another forum that works like a forum.

    Thanks

    Actually you can use BP 1.8.1 with bbPress 2.4 to get what you want.

    Since BuddyPress 1.6, bbPress is no more attached to BP groups and can be installed as a standalone full, complete, forum
    3 types of install are possible: goup-forums only, single forum only or both.

    Read here please.

    What @danbp said. Select “sitewide forums”
