    Sure but try to rewrite it in your own words. Dublicate Content is deadly for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and senseless for the internet as a public database of information.

    To complement your knowledge:

    4 or 5 years ago there was a working plugin for the standalone-version. But bbPress now is on the one hand a Plugin for WordPress and on the other hand it has gone through some serious changes (Updates/Improvements).

    I’m not sure if there’s still a standalone version managed and maintained by the developers. But in the past there were working methods to customize the URL structure individually (Mostly “core-hacking”).



    Instead of creating a new topic I’d like my question to be answered in here.

    I downloaded and installed the bbPress-Plugin for WordPress and set it up for my website. Here’s the link to my forum.

    I changed the permalinks /forums/forum/ to /forum/kategorie/ (engl. category)

    Does anyone by this time know a guide (for non-coders) or plugin to customize the permalink structure in bbPress?

    I’d like to change the structure from: (Origin)

    forums -> forum(folder)/topic(folder) -> forum/topic

    To: (Personalized / SEO Optimized(imho))

    forums -> forum -> topic

    I did some research beforehanded:

    • no support by developers cause it’s made the wordpress way
    • no negative effect for SEO of the original url structure

    I.e.: website.com/forum/tech/technical-question…
    instead of website.com/forum/topic/technical-question…

    It has no negative effect but it would grant two more positive ones.
    (1) More freedom for the user in terms of customizability and (2) the new customizability grants free space for keywords in the URL which are not only nice to read for search engines

    What about the htaccess rewrite ideas, I didn’t get any of these working and many say it’s not recommendable.
