PLEASE – step by step to make bbPress work in Buddypress….
I have tried and tried to make this work and searched forums high and low but have not had any luck making bbPress work with Buddypress.
I have done the following (In the following order):
Fresh install of WP 3.1.2
Fresh install of Buddypress 1.2.8
Then I went to Buddypress > Forums Setup > setup a new bbPress installation
(I even tried a separate install of bbPress but kept getting “page cannot be displayed” errors when going to the URL to set it up.)
I see a Forums menu now and created a group called Public.
BUT, how to add add Main topics like “General Discussion”, “Questions”, etc and allow users to create sub-topics? (Like every other forum on the web.)
All I want is for users to visit my site and be able to see main and sub-topics and then read the forums. Then if they want to participate, create an account and login in… again, just like most other sites with forums on the webs.
And I’ll even volunteer to write documentation on the entire process if only I could understand it. It seem that things are assumed (such as created Groups being mandetory) only they aren’t well documented.
WP forums have some instructions, BP has some more and this site even more. Only it appears that none seem ot overlap and some important info is missing.
It’s like getting a shiny new car only no one told you that you need to add an extra part to make it work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
