    Plugin for the plugin version of bbPress are installed the same way WP plugins are.

    I wasn’t talking about ‘installing’ the plugin, I was refering to how to access the bbpress admin section.

    It appears in the normal wordpress admin section. It doesn’t have its own separate admin any more.

    Well if that’s the case, then except for creating forums/topics/replies, I can’t do anything else at all.

    What about plugins for example? Should I put them into my defauly wp plugins folder? Or should it go into wp-content/plugins/bbpress/my-plugins?

    I tried the second method and WP doesn’t identify any plugins for bbpress

    bbPress 2.0 plugins are installed like normal WP plugins, in the wp-content/plugins folder. The my-plugins folder is only used with bbPress standalone, versions 0.x and 1.x. Most of the plugins out right now, and possibly all of them, were designed for bbPress stand alone and will not work with the bbPress plugin. Please make sure the plugins you are trying to use were made for the version you are using.

    There aren’t many options for bbPress 2.x. You can administer:

    forums at /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=forum

    topics at /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=topic

    replies at /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=reply

    other settings at /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bbpress.

    If it’s not on one of those pages you’ll have to dive into the code.

    Thanks Andre.. this clears up quite a few things.
