Group or Sitewide Forums? (or both?) Help!!!

  • mg


    Hi – I am totally new to BP. Just installed ver 1.5.6.

    If I have group forums enabled does that mean people not in that group are excluded from viewing the forum?

    If I have sitewide forums can groups still have their own section within it?

    Is it bad to have both?

    Thanks for your input.

  • Hi Steve-
    Supposedly you can have forums for both groups and sitewide. My recommendation is to download and activate the plugin ‘bbPress’ which is a forum plugin. That will quickly and easily put you on the path to sitewide forums, and it works rather well. Group based forums on the other hand is something I’ve been tinkering with off and on since about february and still can’t get them to work, and apparently I’m not alone in this (though I’ve heard there are many people who have gotten them to work properly). If you do manage to get group based forums to work, I’d love to hear what you did to get them working. Good luck.
