Installing into my WP

    I have installed bbPress and it is authenticating with my WP install but it is not clear to me how to have bbPress show up looking like an integrated part of my WP site. I have included require_once(‘../wp-blog-header.php’); into the config file but it doesn’t seem to get picked up. What am I missing. I sure wish bbPress was as easy to integrate into WP as all the other plugins are.

    bbPress is not a plugin for WordPress. There are forum plugins for WordPress if that’s what you’re looking for.

    Here are a couple. I have no experience with them, I just know they exist.

    So these are plugins for WP and they are forums? … Wouldn;t that make a lot of things easier if bbPress was this way also?

    These look good…I will download and see how well they fit. I agree that it is “funny” that bbPress is affiliated with WP but doesn’t run as a PLUGIN….I’m sure there is some reason….but it feels weird from this end of the transaction….Thanks for the links…

    bbPress would run too slowly as a plugin of WordPress, and the integration path for WPMU would be harder. Plus, it’s not just built for WordPress integration.
