Converting side wide forums to only group forums

    I have a large amount of content in a site wide forum, and would like to move all the content to particular groups and only use groups now with a “support” forum.

    Can anyone advise me on the best route to do this, and how to create a support forum much like bbpress.

    Thanks!

  • At this stage I haven’t seen anyone mention anything about converting to BuddyPress ‘Group Forums’

    With some theme customization you could make it appear that you have two lots of forums by putting each into their own ‘parent category’ and using shortcodes to only display each ‘category’ in specific areas of your site.

    http://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/

    The other way is to go WordPress Multisite and have a  separate site for your ‘support’ side of things.

    To customize bbPress as a support forum check this great tutorial by @mordauk http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/plugins/using-bbpress-as-a-support-forum/

    Thanks! That blows that there’s not a way to moderate, move, etc.

    I’ve asked at buddypress, but nobody has updated :(
