    I did essentially add in the bbpress custom css to my wp theme’s css, too, so that they would really mesh up better, as well.



    I have a link to my forum in my global nav by creating an empty page with a slug that is the same as the directory name as where I have bbpress installed.

    But I also load the wp-load.php file in my bb-config.php file

    define('WP_BB', true);
    if ( !defined('DB_NAME') ) {
    require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../wordpress/wp-config.php');
    $bb->wp_table_prefix = 'wp_'; // your wordpress db prefix is
    $bb->wp_home = '';
    $bb->wp_siteurl = '';

    Then I went into my bbpress theme and changed every instance of bb_get_header() with get_header(), and bb_get_footer() with get_footer().

    Since I want to have my wordpress sidebars show up in the forum, too, I also added get_sidebar() right above the call to get_footer().

    I could also add other sidebars, too – the theme I use adds two columns below the main content area and uses the dynamic sidebar functionality to add them in to each page. I could see how adding other or more sidebars and going in to the templates could be really useful

    Here are the installed plug-ins, but I should note that it has been doing this before I installed any plug-ins:

    Akismet v1.0

    Bavatars v0.4

    BBcode Lite v1.0.3

    BBVideo v0.24

    Post Count Titles v1.0.2

    Right on the forum front page, you can see this entry:

    That escaped apostrophe is what I’m talking about… were I to go in and edit that post, there would be two backslashes.
