How to install /forum in parallel to /blog?

  • Hi,

    On my website I have in root folder of the domain (www.example.com/) all html static pages. Some time ago I installed on that website the WordPress package, for blogging. As it was allowed in standard setup, WordPress files are located in http://www.example.com/wp/ folder and blog is accessible via http://www.example.com/blog/.

    Recently I decided to add forum to the site, using existing WordPress installation. After bbress plugin installation, when I configure the forum, it is by default appended to blog – current WordPress starting folder and addressed as http://www.example.com/blog/forum/, which is messy and confusing.

    How to setup bbpress in this environment to have forum root separated and directed to http://www.example.com/forum/ in parallel to blog http://www.example.com/blog/?

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Try creating a page with the same slug and associate it with forums base slug.

    Thanks, I was already trying that and the result was the same: http://www.example.com/blog/forum/. Maybe I did something wrong… How should I do it properly?

    Does anyone know whether it’s possible to solve this /blog/forum/ issue and eventually how to setup bbPress plugin?

    Is there anybody who can clarify whether there is a method of installing and/or setting up the bbPress plugin to access the blog and forum separately via virtual /blog and /forum subfolders respectively, having physically installed WordPress files in domain.com/wp subfolder?
