Re: Link to forum from WordPress
To link your bbPress forum to WordPress, follow this:
Create a new Page in WordPress. When you do that, the page is assigned a slug, which is basically the URL it will be accessed at. If you want http://www.example.com/forum/ , you create a new page called “Forum”. That page will appear in your WordPress navigation. Then install bbPress into a directory on your server, one directory lower than WordPress, called forum, and when someone accesses that URL, they get your forum.
They will never use the same administration pages.
