Re: bbPress 1.0-alpha-4 released


I’m giving a try to a deep integration. I want to load bbpress in my wordpress theme so I have a modified bbpress kamukei where I load wp header, sidebar and footer.

I installed bbpress 1.04a, I activated the new plugin, edited wp-config.php as plugin required, I founded that all this still didn’t load wp header and I modified bbpress bb-config.php with;

define('WP_BB', true);
if ( !defined('DB_NAME') ) {
require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../wp-config.php');

Now, it seems everything works ok; bbpress loads wp-header, I have access to bbpress control panel, both, admin and users can post, I can log out… I’m going to keep my beta-testing and I’ll further report but I think Sam did it :) so CONGRATULATIONS.

I’m not sure that I’ll want to load bbpress functions into wordpress so far because what I need is all the contrary; to load wordpress into bbpress so I can have a very simple and integrated forum. However, having the bbpress control panel integrated into the wordpress panel would be great.

The idea of bbpress as a plugin is very nice but Sam is totally right when he stated that we have a stronger foundation as a stand alone. Perhaps that little plugin as a “bridge” is the way to go.
