please ignore – it was in my theme stylesheet, not bbpressIn reply to: Move BBPress over to a new database?
I’m also looking to do this – move my buddypress install to a new url. Is it possible to export/import everything? Do I just need to copy the tables from WordPress?
ok, I think I worked it out:
– install buddypress
– install bbpress
– DON’T add theme support to current theme (this is what I did before)
– copy the Forums (Index) Page Template and content-archive.php files to your theme directory, so can create a /forum page
– optional: create a forum.php file in your theme directory (I based mine on my page.php file) as this controls the look and feel of all bbpress pages.
I did that, but the problem I have is bbpress automatically creates a page at the same url that overwrites my WP Page. If I go into the bbpress settings and change the forums base to say ‘forumsbb’ then I end up with two forums, one at /forum and one at /forumbb, which I want to avoid.
I must be doing something wrong!
can someone please help me with this?? Surely there’s a better way to add content to archive-forum.php and archive-topic.php than hardcoding html into the page – there must be a way to use the ‘Forum’ and ‘Topics’ page created in WordPress???
if my question was confused, in summary it’s – is there a way to build the forum homepage using a wordpress Page so that I can edit the content on the forum homepage using the WordPress Page editing window?
yes I did, it didn’t work immediately but it’s working now so there must be some sort of lag.
