@johnhiler: Sorry for the confusion. I am not talking about a role permission with bbpress. I am actually talking about the Theme editor that wordpress has. That way theme modifications can be made without having to use ftp. It looks like though that I am not going to get that luxury.
Yes, we have VPN but if any damage was done we could quickly isolate the problem. We have had VPN activated for years without any issues.
@johnhiler: That makes a lot sense to me. I have three servers full of wordpress blogs and for the last three months I have been hammered with viruses and hacks. This is something I need to pass onto my server admin!
However, for the specific project I’ve mentioned above our forum will reside on the company intranet. We are behind a firewall and only those from our company can access the forum. So, I would still like to add an editor. Can anyone point me to documentation on how to do this?
By the way, I really appreciate the input from both Ipstenu and johnhiler. It helps as I stumble around figuring out bbpress!
@Ipstenu: Yeah, I was excited to see further functionality like One Click Updater added to wp2.8. Now the only thing missing from 2.8 is an uploader for 3 party plugins and themes (which One Click Updater has), but I guess you can just download it to your computer and than upload it with 2.8. However, it is nice to be able to upload straight from the url.
Another question concerning bbPress. Do you know a hack that will allow us to put the theme editor into bbpress (like how wp does it)?
@Ipstenu: Unfortunately, there are no resources allocated for a designer on this project. So, we have to just use the free themes that are provided and it is the marketing department who will be over the themes. It is what it is and hopefully we can make it work.
@ johnhiler: I did not know that the plugins could cross platforms, that’s good news (and I am glad I could introduce you to One Click, it is a really good plugin).
Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I know that bbPress is not a plugin. This is abundantly clear. However, I am looking for a plugin similar to what you can find in a regular wordpress blog (One Click Updater) to add to bbPress that will give uploading capability inside the bbPress admin.
When you are supporting a large company of 1,000+ employees restricting access is very prudent. We have learned in the past the damage many hands can do to a site (particularly, if they are marketing hands, which are the one’s who want to change the bbPress theme).
Any insight on finding such a plugin would be very appreciative!
