    It’s deep, I can access and use all my WordPress functionality. Afaik using wp-blog-header.php is deprecated for that use, I’ve been calling wp-load.php.

    µ 2.8.4a and bbPress 1.0.2, no buddyPress, I’m afraid that bug has yet to bite me. Maybe that narrows down the cause though?

    It’s called deep integration, and it’s being discussed all around you right now. ;)

    Which pages are you getting the 404 header on? I just crawled my local copy quickly with firebug and was getting 200’s across the board. I’m probably missing a few of the pages though, I just loaded it up and started clicking away. :)

    I know WordPress has a page full of ’em that you can use here: https://wordpress.org/about/logos/

    Not so sure if bbpress has put up such a page or not though. They don’t seem to have a similar page yet, but the team at Automattic are usually pretty damn cool about things like that (if you wanted to pull one from somewhere in the public domain), so long as you make it plain that you’re not a subsidiary.

    What tasks exactly are you unable to do? And do you mean you’re unable to make them work on your own because you’ve tried, or because of your access to your server, or something else?

    No sense in paying money without trying first. It’s fairly simple; being a non-techie might make it a little more involving but definitely not impossible or improbable.

    Everybody needs a break from time to time. They were probably just sleeping in.

    Looks promising! You may want to hire a programmer though if you get the chance, as “Please keep in mind that, because all our works are done manually, it may take up to 1 week.” is a huge barrier for entry to a lot of people. A form that they can fill out and be up and running in the same hour would probably help bring in traffic.

    Good domain choice.

    If you saw a list of files instead of the installer, you probably have an incorrect DirectoryIndex directive set. bbPress uses index.php (same as WP) that should automatically be served, so that’s more likely an issue with your host more than it is one with bbpress.

    Also, does your host have it’s SQL server hosted on the same machine as your web site? ‘localhost’ won’t work if you have to access it via another address, such as mysql.yourdomain.com which your host might have pointed at a different IP.

    “* too many plug-ins external to the core software just to get it to run normal forum functionality that comes ‘out of the box’ with most other forums, meaning too many 3rd party functions that might one day no longer be supported (like bbsync)”

    What plugins are necessary? I’m running bbpress with absolutely no plugins at the moment (though to be fair, I fully plan on adding a few), and I seem to be able to set up forums, post topics, and then reply to said topics. That seems to be the basic functionality of a forum to me?

    “* no bbsync”

    If you really need to duplicate content, you could always use cp

    “* not an easy install plug-in to wp. “

    I’ll agree, I would have jumped for joy had this been the case. Though honestly integration (shallow or deep) really doesn’t take a whole lot of effort at all.

    Have you asked the author of the plugin if s/he plans to update it? You never know, it could be in the works right now.

    I may be going cross-eyed, but that changeset only looks like it combined three lines into one, and added a little css. The brackets will still be there, no?

    “Where do I find that file to edit?”

    bb-includes/functions.bb-template.php, in or around line 1502

    It works great if you’re running your forums as a sub-directory of your WP install, but it breaks as is if you’re trying to run your forums under a sub-domain.

    Anybody who happens to know a work-around, feel free to check out: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-in-a-subdomain-on-a-wpmu-install

    Sorry, it’s a little tongue in cheek. Enlarging your font size can be handled in a variety of ways, and the question was a little broad in its scope.

    You’re going to have to edit the bbPress’ theme stylesheet and increase your font size from there.

    In the meantime you can pass new configuration settings to bb_topic_admin() to change the way this looks.

    Current configuration options default to:

    array(
    'id' => 0,
    'before' => '[',
    'after' => ']',
    'delete_text' => false,
    'undelete_text' => false,
    'redirect' => true
    );

    Change before to ” and after to ‘ – ‘ and instead of the brackets, you just have an extra dash floating around. Or you can edit bb_get_topic_move_dropdown() and just remove $before and $after from $r. ;)

    I could be wrong about this, but you should only have to delete the tables from your database and remove the bb-config.php file (you could remove the .htaccess too, but as long as it’s owned by the web server, shouldn’t be a problem for bbpress to rewrite it).

    It’s actually a pretty simple hack, though I caution you that I worked it out in the last five minutes.

    First, modify the following three lines of your bbpress .htaccess;

    RewriteRule ^forum/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /bbpress/forum.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^forum/([^/]+)/?$ /bbpress/forum.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]
    RewriteRule ^forum/?$ /bbpress/ [R=302,L,QSA]

    change ^forum/ to whatever you want the permalink to be, such as ^sub/ or ^purplepolkadots/, whatever works for you. Then open functions.bb-template.php and go to line 711 inside function get_forum_link() (line numbers may vary). It should look something like:

    $link = bb_get_uri('forum/' . $forum->$column . $page, null, $context);

    …and change ‘forum/’ to whatever you put in your .htaccess – this seemed to work for me immediately, however as I mentioned, I haven’t done any thorough testing of it.

    I’ll post this here, as this is probably the closest thread I’ve found relating to what I’m trying to do.

    I’m setting up a µ site that will be using bbPress on the main blog. Since I don’t want to usurp *.domain.tld/forums/ on every blog, I set up bbPress under its own subdomain.

    Works fine using either an Apache VirtualHost or the above mod_rewrite method, right up until I try to load µ from within bbpress (there are a LOT of functions I would like to use without rewriting them, so this is absolutely necessary). Once I load wp-config in bbPress, trying to access the forums 302 redirects me back to blog. Looks like I can have my subdomain, or my integration, but I can’t have both at the same time.

    Has anybody gotten this to work?
