Is it recommended to mix bbPress in WordPress datadase?

    Hi,

    I am really looking forward to include bbPress in my WordPress site, but I have these questions that right now is stopping me from doing it: Is safe to install bbPress in the same database that WordPress is running on? There is a clean way to automatically uninstall bbPress in case something goes wrong? Is there any security concern letting visitors register right into WordPress?

    Thanks,

    If you’re using the bbPress plugin for WordPress, it will put its data in the same database tables as your WordPress installation.

    There is an “uninstaller” in development, but I suspect most people won’t ever want to completely destroy all of their data.

    The only security concerns would be the ones you create, like allowing them to be Editors or Admins. The default user role prevents Subscribers from doing anything malicious.
