Advice before installation

  • I have a WordPress website and want to add a forum (message board). If I wanted to use bbPress do I setup a bbPress forum first and then integrate it into WordPress or can I install bbPress in WordPress and then set up the forum?

    You just said you have a WP website. Is it already live? It depends on if you want to integrate these two or not. You can do that during the installation or after, it’s up to you.

    I have the same interest. Can you point to a how-to article that shows how to integrate the two to have the same theme, headers, menu, etc. The featured site I saw that did this was SlashGear.

    There is only one theme listed in the cpanel for bbPress, Kakumei. I do want the WPress and BBPress themes to be consistent.

    The website is live. I have installed nothing yet.



    WordPress, then bbPress in a sub folder.

    Thank you! I’ll give this a try. Looks like exactly what I need.

    thanks for the info can you tell me i wan to add in bbpress forums user’s signature feature how can i add it or is it built in with it or i need to add some extra plugin for it?
