Antonskey: I see your post in the forum overview, I see it in RSS but I just don’t see it here. Weird.
another question before installing the plugin (i plan to, honestly, i just have a few bugs with bbpress to work out before i go adding more plugins). is there yet the capability of having posts in specific categories go to specific forums?
Not (yet? dunno). You can assign a forum for it to go to on a post-by-post basis, though (with it blank making it go in default), which probably does that job.
