    Here’s my bbPress integration:

    http://www.itinerantangler.com/blog/board/forums/

    Only problem is the queries are running a bit slow right now. I posted about that in Troubleshooting.

    I successfully transferred a 75k post board from Yabb 2.3 –> YaBB 2.4 –> SMF 1.4 –> phpBB3 –> bbPress. I’m kinda proud of that. It took a LOT of work.

    Nice website, looks pretty.. only ‘problem’ it took about 12 seconds to load the pages.

    Are you able to profile your site (probably using the Debug Bar plugin) to get more information on what queries are running slowly? According to your other topic, it sounds like some other plugins were the culprit.

    If you’d like to help improve the forum, view, and topic-index queries, we have this ticket open for bbPress 2.5: http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1925

    Hey guys -

    The page load times were due to a couple slow plug ins which I was able to identify with the P3 Plug In Profiler and remove. Load time is now sub 1.5s per page (once you load the heavy banners – I need to reduce the size on those but I haven’t found the time yet since they are site-wide and it will take me a while to reconfigure everything).

    Thanks for the feedback. I still haven’t been able to make BuddyPress play nice but bbPress is at last fully functional with Pinboard.

    That’s pretty outstanding, any suggestions for a new person to bbpress how to set up a style like that?

    Sure, you can get pretty close just by mimicking my settings and dropping my custom CSS in.

    Install the Pinboard Theme and the BBPress plug in, then in your admin page go to Appearances/Themes and choose Pinboard to modify.

    Pinboard is built with an admin section for you to add custom CSS to, which is great since it essentially takes the place of having to go through and tweak the crap out of a child theme.

    In the Appearance/Themes section, choose Theme Options, then in the tab at the top choose Layout. Set the layout for 2 Content columns, 2 Boxes Sidebar columns and 4 Footer columns, but keep in mind that out of the box BBPress is broken with Pinboard. However, I have a ton of CSS tweaks that fix BBPress on Pinboard, and you’ll want to cut and paste those in to the “Custom CSS” box at the bottom of the layout page. Once you implement those tweaks you should have a workable version of BBPress that you can further tweak.

    Custom CSS:

    `#bbpress-forums #bbp-user-wrapper h2.entry-title {
    margin-left: 0 !important;

    Dude, your awesome, I didn’t expect that at all, I will try this on my staging server, if you have a 300×250 banner for your site, I will put it where the tractor supply ad is for 30 days for free

    thank-you for your help

    It’s a nice site; no worries about the ad, but I would be curious to see what that code does to an out of the box version of bbPress. It should get it pretty close; I just use a lot of ‘Inspect Element’ clicking to figure out what might be broken and tweak it. The main issue with bbPress and Pinboard is to do with the .onecol format, which for some reason is broken. Just an FYI, I’ve also modified the header.php file and the search.php file in Pinboard to move their built-in slider up to the utmost top of the page, so I can use it as a banner. It doesn’t quite work on my forums page, because that’s actually in a sub-category but in the blog section it slides. Just to explain why that may look different.

    One other thing of note: in building my site I did a multisite install with three different instances of Pinboard running different sections. This allows me to keep the (1) Board, (2) Blog/Gear Reviews/Podcasts/Videos, and (3) Photoblog separate. The photoblog has like 1700 images so I didn’t want those mixed in with general purpose posts, and in order to make the board work with the CSS tweaks above, I had to set it up as a multisite so I could configure the other sections differently, get away from a one column layout, etc. The good news is in a multi-site the user carries their logged in status and identity from section to section regardless of which blog they’re in.
