Re: visit bbpress in root dir; store it elsewhere
Replying to myself: I installed on our live site and didn’t have the same problems, by copying the files onto a root with a non-bbpress name, and several levels down; maybe just a local server problem. I think the lesson is: install really basic, and play. Make up your mind what everything is going to be called and where it will go, and then start all over fresh.
At least now we don’t see bb-press named folders except in admin. But I agree, it would be neater to have all the bb-press functional stuff in a common place, called by as many installations as required, but I guess there is a single database / table registration in there.
Pretty neat though; I like it. Only problem is IE 6 messes it up in places (positioning, not showing all user tags etc.)
