WordPress Plugin to bbPress Plugin

    Greetings all :) (I have removed the 888 from my user-name – I just couldn’t stand it anymore)

    I hope someone can guide me or point me in the right direction here. In various attempts to understand how the bbPress plugin system works, I am trying to convert a few WordPress plugins into bbPress ones.

    I’m starting off with “WP-Cumulus” as well as “Let It Snow”. I’m not sure, however, what to look out for. For example, what are the differences between WP and bbPress when it comes to adding extra admin and profile info.

    What things should I look for while I go about doing this?

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks! :)

    Michael, I am already working on bb Cumulus, and it is almost completed.

    You can see it active on my test site – http://forum.gaut.am/

    Here are some steps when converting WP plugins into BB:

    1. Change everything from WP to bb (except some functions like wp_enqueue_scripts, etc – they are borrowed as it is from WP, actually they are in BackPress)
    2. Activation & Deactivation are hooks, not functions
    3. There are some different functions like bb_title();, bb_option('description');, bb_option(’uri’);
    4. If a function name doesnt start with wp_, then most of the times bb_ is added to avoid conflicts when WP functions are loaded into bbPress (integrated)
    5. There are also functions like bb_is_topic() etc like is_single() in WP
    6. etc….

    BTW, nice theme of your forums…

    That’s awesome! I have just commented on the beta. :) Thank you!

    And thanks for the tips – they sound very logical, and pretty much confirm what I kept asking myself.

    I really appreciate all your help. :)
