Could not have put it any more professional than illustrated by ‘thebasket’. That is the frustration I was having with bbpress. Pushing my deadlines up against the wall until I finally had to look toward alternatives.
PLEASE ADD A SHORTCODE THAT WILL ENABLE THE PLUGIN TO WORK WITHIN A FULL-WIDTH PAGE JUST LIKE SIMPLE PRESS.
Thank you for responding to my earlier question eventhough it’s a mute point now since I am beta testing another forum plugin.
Our team needs a simple forum that can be plugged right into a full-width page. The template we are using was built with that in mind.
The only problem we found with BBPress was it’s lack of one shortcode for the entire plugin. Why implement short-codes for bits and pieces of a software package and not the whole?
We implemented BBPress into a full-width page. Looked good until we clicked on any link inside the forum. When it was redrawn, it would leave the full-width page and revert back to a normal width page with sidebar widgets being displayed.
Modifying our template to fit a plugin is out of the question. Our template works with every other plugin we have installed and should not have to be modified to make a plug-in work. The plugin should work, regardless. If we start modifying a template everytime we load a plugin, we would be in trouble.
In other words, you need a short-code for the entire forum, not section.
We are currently beta-testing simplepress which uses one shortcode for the entire plugin.
BBPress has a lot of potential but doesn’t quite meet the requirements for a seamless forum plugin.
