Re: i need …
1. You can integrate FCK Editor or TinyMCE if you are looking for a wysiwyg editor.
1a. To allow all that type of content, you’re going to need a plugin. Check out this thread:
2. Does the regular sitemap plugin NOT work with 0.8.3? I never tried it. http://boakes.org/download/bbpress_sitemap.txt
3. To show hot tags, you are going to need to edit the template files for each page, then insert this tag where you want it:
<p class="frontpageheatmap"><?php bb_tag_heat_map(); ?></p>
Depending on the layout of each of your pages, you might need to create a new div to insert that tag heat map into, or maybe there is room inside an existing div.
The things you are asking for are going to require a substantial amount of work on your part. It can all be done (probably) but it’s not going to be super quick.
