New installation fail

    I am attempting to install bbpress as a forum for an already existing site thechinaboxer.com. Essentially, I want to integrate it into the site itself. When I do the .zip install, it goes through the motion of intallation, completing the process, but when I hit activate, it flips to a blank screen that says:

    The plugin does not have a valid header.

    Any ideas or suggestions on what I’m missing or on what’s not installing right?

  • Are you installing bbPress as a plugin in a WordPress site? That would trigger an error like the one you reported…

    Yes, and that was my concern. Is it expecting to install as a stand as a stand alone forum site, and not as a WP plug in to a developed site?

    Yah it’s not a WordPress plugin… it’s separate software which has plugins of its own.

    There are WordPress plugins like this one that offer very basic forum functionality:

    You might want to try something like that, if you’re not comfortable installing standalone forum software…

    Good luck!
