    @antonioperez

    Hello everyone. I am attempting to incorporate bbpress into my current wordpress site at http://www.atriskstoriesofhope.com/wordpress. I don’t want bbpress and wordpress to share any user data as the wordpress site will only be available to members who pay for the service. In short, the bbpress forum will be a kind of online mentoring tool. What I want to is to basically embed bbpress into my wordpress so that when someone navigates threw the site, it will appear as a smooth transitition.

    Thanks

    To make bbPress look like your WordPress theme, you are going to have to do some XHTML and CSS work with a new template for your bbPress forum. It doesn’t sound like you will need user integration, so you can skip that part of the installation/integration, but will will need to either include WordPress in bbPress to get access to your WordPress header and foot or manually add those items to your bbPress template.

    If you search this forum for integration or view topics tagged integration, you will find lots of integration advice. Here’s a good thread (started a while ago so some of the advice may not apply):

    There are also a couple WordPress forum plugins:

    http://www.xdweb.net/wordpress/xdforum2/

    (might not work anymore with WordPress 2.5)

    Never tried either of those but they might be options instead of creating your own theme to make bbPress look like your WordPress installation.
