How to make BB Press look like my Word Press?

    @pazzaglia1

    I’ve been searching through the plug-ins and maybe not using the right words to look for this in the forums – surely I’m not the first to ask THIS!

    I just installed bb press and I want to put a wrapper on it so it looks like my wordpress website. Google searches got me into trouble with mods that broke the forums.

    Can you point me to a discussion, documentation or reliable website that tells me how to do this?

    Thanks,

    Can you point me to a guide or post that lists the CSS work?

    I’m really surprised there isn’t a better template integration between wordpress and bbpress!

    Thanks,

    Maybe I wasn’t clear.

    I have WordPress already successfully installed, now I have installed BBpress. I’m looking for documentation for wrapping BBPress in my WordPress headers so the experience is continuous.

    Thanks,

    it is already wrapped in the header when bbpress is installed.
    Just create categories in your menu, linking it to bbPress forums

    what is the link to your site, to better explain this

    This is the development site:

    http://draft.hippressurecooking.com/

    I already have the link at the top to the forums. What I would like, is for the entire header of the home page:

    home, forums, ect. twitter, ect
    hip pressure cooking banner and image

    to be displayed above the forums.

    Thanks!

    OK. I just found the answer to my own question.

    I mistakenly installed BB PRESS as stand-alone app. I didn’t realize that it could also just be installed as a plug-in to WordPress – didn’t see that anywhere in the documentation.

    Just tested it and it looks great, it not only wraps in the header and footer but also the side-bar. As with any WP page, you can just select a button to undo this.

    To anyone in the same boat as I am. Go to WordPress:Plugins and install BB Press from there. Then, all new forums, topics, ect. will be created from the WP Admin panel.

    Ciao,
