A converter for phpbb3 is in progress. Here’s a link to the ticket for it. https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1547In reply to: Consider my little suggestion. (=offer)
Use [bbp-single-forum id="A forum ID"] to show a single forum or [bbp-single-topic id="A topic ID"] to show a single topic.
@harry.mat – What are you trying to do? bb-config.php is only used in bbPress versions 0.x and 1.x.

bbPress 2.0 doesn’t yet integrate with BuddyPress the way standalone did. It will in the future, but I don’t know which versions of bbPress or BuddyPress that is planned for. I asked once, but never got an answer.In reply to: Importing large'ish forums into bbPress 2.0
@malawimama – The importer is located at /wp-admin/import.php or Tools -> Import from the admin panel.
@Trifon – It happened at least once between betas, that’s why I expected it to happen again.In reply to: Use bbPress in place of WordPress comments
It was possible with an older version of bbPress. I don’t think it’s possible with 2.0 yet, but I’d be surprised if there wasn’t a plugin created for it in the near future.
I think you’ve moved beyond where I can be much help. Hopefully JJJ will chime in.In reply to: bbpress 2.0 and pm plugin
Look at the WordPress PM options at https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/. You shouldn’t require a plugin specific to bbPress.
@Trifon – Thank you. I expected it to show up in the WP auto update.
@dobralog – The goal is the same time as WordPress 3.2 which is scheduled for Thursday. I don’t know if either is on schedule. I assume WP is close since RC2 is out. bbPress was supposed to have an RC out 3 days ago, but I haven’t seen it yet.
The best suggestion I have is to keep the page “forum”, make the base “forums”, and make the single slug “forum”.
I hope there are some more options for this on the way.
I’m not enough of a coder to be much help, but I would start here https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/branches/plugin/bbp-includes/bbp-core-shortcodes.php
I created a page and put [bbp-topic-index] and [bbp-topic-form] as the content. It’s letting me choose the forum and topic type. Is this the method you used or did you hard code it?
(I’d give you the URL to the page I created, but I don’t think it would do any good since you can’t login so you won’t see the create a topic form.)
Create a page, title it “Forum” or whatever you like. Put “[bbp-forum-index]” including the brackets as the content of the page and publish it.
Then go to Settings -> Reading in the Admin panel. Change the “Front Page Displays” option to page and select “Forum” or whatever you named the page.
An example is at http://forum.ajorel.com.
There has to be a way via CSS, but I don’t know what it is. Hopefully one of the more experience people will point you in the right direction.
Create a page and put “[bbp-topic-index]” as the content. That will make the page list the topics.
Someone reported having trouble with that function here – https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbp-topic-index-does-not-function-properly-at-certain-circumstances.
bbPress-standalone plugins are not compatible with bbPress-plugin. bbPress-plugin plugins are installed the same way WordPress plugins are installed and do not use the my-plugins directory.In reply to: BBpress to WordPress with BBpress Plugin
There is a bbPress standalone to bbPress plugin converter so that part is possible. I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “I would like to give my members the ability to post ala-Wordpress (with pictures and all)”.
@Tom Lynch – Create a page, title it “Forum” or whatever you like. Put “[bbp-forum-index]” including the brackets as the content of the page and publish it.
Then go to Settings -> Reading in the Admin panel. Change the “Front Page Displays” option to page and select “Forum” or whatever you named the page.In reply to: Plugin install for bbpress 2.0 beta 3
You can’t. Most, if not all, existing bbPress plugins were made for bbPress standalone (versions 0.x or 1.x) and will not work with bbPress the plugin (versions 2.x). The plugin author will have to make modifications for it to work or you can look for something similar in the WP plugin directory.In reply to: Private forums
Eventually bbPress 2.0 will be used as the forum component of BuddyPress. The private features in bbPress were built for that, but won’t really be useful until BuddyPress and bbPress the plugin become aware of each other. At this point the private features in bbPress are just hooks for future addons.
I’ve asked at which version of BuddyPress and bbPress will they be made aware of each other, but haven’t received and answer.In reply to: Using bbpress as a plugin. How to access bbp-admin?
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.
