After BBP was intergrated into WP, how can I make it(bbp) accessible inside WP?
I’m new in both WP and BBP, but have some background with PHP.
I’m building a website using WP 3.0 Twenty Ten theme, and one of page needs bulletine board, so I decided to use BBPress for that.
Thanks for http://1plusdesign.com/articles/bbpress-wordpress-integration/ I could install bbpress under my WP site (http://localhost/wordpress) like http://localhost/wordpress/forums and if I go to http://localhost/wordpress/forums directly, I can see the bbpress forum, but my question is without direct accessing to the url (http://localhost/wordpress/forums),how can someone from my WP site go to the forum page? For instance, I have a page called Forum in my WP site, and I would like if someone clicks(goes to) the page, it will display http://localhost/wordpress/forums
Thanks for your reply.
Assuming you have permalinks set up, create a page with the permalink
forumsso the full url would be http://localhost/wordpress/forums
Because the directory exists, when someone goes to the page they will end up on your forum.
Sorry that I’m so ignorant of WordPress. I found Permalink Settings in WordPress Dashboard (admin), and there, which should I choose(maybe Custom Structure?) and set what value?
Doesn’t matter as long as they are not the default ?post=2
The structure affects posts but page permalinks are always in the format url/slug
I always use the year/month/title option.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, if I select year/month/title option, it goes to http://localhost/wordpress/forums/ (which is bbpress) page, which I wanted.
However, I have another page, like about and staff.. and they do not exist like forum, so I need them to be like default?p=123
Currently, if I click about page, it tries to go to http://localhost/wordpress/about/ and it throws Object not found! error because I do not have about page. How can I solve this problem?
I solved the problem, the issue was about using xampp locally. The solution is
The solution is to turn on mod_rewrite by editing apache/conf/httpd.conf. Just remove the comment in front of the line (around line #118) and restart Apache.
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
