I’m glad that others see this as a beneficial suggestion.
Having the integration with WordPress makes this forum tool very useful, and only requires a user to have one ID to make blog comments, as well as, participate in a forum.
This could be a big step forward for WordPress to move more into the CMS market.
However, finding information on how to integrate, customize, and expand on the core bbPress functionality seems difficult due to the lack of organization.
It seems that this issue could be easily solved with a new forum…and at the same time showcase one of bbPress’s features.
Once your forum gets some traffic, shouldn’t there be something in some of the forums? I think if you plan on not having any content in the forums, what’s the point of the forum.
Why don’t you put the forum as the front page, and then create an additional page which is a menu item on your site for the blog.
In the blog page, use the wordpress template tag for the blog index.
<?php wp_get_archives(‘type=postbypost&limit=10&format=custom’); ?>
