Re: Using my customised WP theme in BBPress?

That’s not the only way you can do this.

You can either use the wordpress header replacement technique, by which you use the wordpress header and any number of theme files, meaning that you can have your forums exactly where your wordpress content is, surrounded by your wordpress header and sidebars and footer, using the wordpress theme file, with a supplemental file to style bbPress differently. This is great because not only the stylesheet is shared but so are a bunch of the HTML-generating files, and your bbPress stylesheet is seperate so it doesn’t get in the way of anything.

You can also just copy your theme by duplicating the look in bbPress. I’d say it was a lot easier to change the CSS than it was to go through all the HTML-generating files and changing those to use the WordPress CSS, and then still adding more CSS.

Having just done both for two different clients, I’d personally recommend the first option; it’s going to be slower on the server, but faster to do (ie. cheaper to have done) also a lot more maintainable and thorough.

leeppp, I offer this sort of thing professionally. If you want me (or even someone else) to do it, just post your email and I’ll get in touch.
