WP/BBPress Directory Structure Suggestion

  • Thank you for bbpress!

    This thread comes close to answering my question but misses an important concept “where should bbpress code reside to integrate best with wordpress?”: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/38?replies=29

    The directory structure I am planning on using:

    domainname.com (splash screen, redirect to /blog or whatever)

       |

       |—/blog/ (wordpress code in this subdirectory)

       |

       |—/forum/ (bbpress code in this subdirectory)

       …

    Incase the spaces compress I’ll show that another way:

    http://domainname.com/blog/ (wordpress)

    http://domainname.com/forum/ (bbpress)

    Am I making a mistake to not use this directory structure:

    domainname.com

       |

       |—/blog/

       …      |

                |—/forum/

                …

    http://domainname.com/blog/ (wordpress)

    http://domainname.com/blog/forum/ (bbpress)

    OR here’s a silly one. Noting that wordpress and bbpress seem to share the same filename only with index.php, should all code be in the same directory: http://domainname.com/ (wordpress and bbpress code here with some magic done to the index.php file? like index.php for wordpress and renaming bbpress’ to index-bb.php)

    Which directory structure is going to make for the happiest co-existence of wordpress and bbpress with the intention of having them seemlessly interact? My gut feeling is that it just doesn’t matter as long as wp-config.php gets included within the config.php for bbpress.

    Thank you!
