Some Questionssssss

  • If this is in the wrong place, my bad. I couldn’t find all the answers I needed, so I decided a new thread would help.

    * Can I import my data from an Invision Power forum?

    * bbPress can integrate with my WordPress blog, right? Meaning users make a profile and use an avatar that would show up in the forums as well as in comments on the blog?

    * Is there a WYSIWYG editor for bbpress?

    * What about signatures for posts, as you would find with phpBB, Invision Power, etc?

    * Is there a quick reply feature?

    What I’m looking for is a forum to integrate with WordPress, but Invision can’t do that, so it would be ideal if bbPress had features like it.

    Thanks!

  • 1. Prolly.

    2. Yup. The biggest part is sharing users, sharing topics/blogposts and replies/comments is not yet possible as far as I know. Avatars will take several modifications.

    3. I think there’s a plugin.

    4. I don’t think so. Not yet.

    5. Yes. Almost every post is done via a quick reply interface (post box at the bottom of a thread).

    Thanks. I really like the forums for WordPress.com/forums – Is it something that would be hard to replicate?

    No, it isn’t.

    Stylesheets are what determines the look of a forum. These are the stylesheets the WP.com forums use:

    http://wordpress.com/forums-theme/wpcom/forums.css

    http://wordpress.com/wp-content/themes/h3/style.css?1169109548

    http://wordpress.com/wp-content/themes/h3/hack.css

    I do not think they would mind if you use them, as long as you give credit. You could ask someone.

    Or, instead, you could start a new theme, edit your new style.css file and try to replicate what they have by try-and-error.

    Automattic don’t want anyone using any theme on wordpress.com, so ‘copying’ them is out of the question and I have talked to them about it. I had permission to clone this particular forum theme and have released it on my site. There are ways to make things different, but you would have to create the theme!

    Thanks for the info!
