bbpress as wordpress page

    In my wordpress website I have the mainpage(index) and several pages, all of which have the content on the left, a middle column that contains advertisements, and a right column which contains widgets.

    Is it possible to install a fully integrated bbpress forum that is a page to the wordpress website? Stated differently, can I put all of the contents of the forum in the left hand column, and keep the middle column of ads and the right column of widgets?

    You’ll want to use the bbPress plugin with some custom template files, and customize it to taste. Anything is possible. :)

    The regular bbpress installation won’t do that, you think? I should wait for the plugin?

    The regular bbPress installation won’t do that without much, much work. :)

    For example, here at bbPress.org, we have 1 unified theme, that both the blog and the forums use. It’s a completely custom theme, on top of a very complicated installation that integrates with shared user tables over at wordpress.org, several themes and plugin repositories, etc…

    So, it can be as simple or as complicated as you need it to be, but the plugin version of bbPress will give you a huge head start.

    But the plugin will? That’s impressive! I can’t wait until the plugin comes out. I just installed a test bbpress on a dummy site to see how it looks. It’s pretty smooth. I really think bbpress has the potential to dominate the forum industry if people get behind it like they do WordPress.

    You’re running the alpha version now, correct? Then comes the Beta and then the stable?

    Correct: alpha, beta, stable. Here at bbpress.org, we’re still running the stand-alone installation of bbPress. We are (kind of) following my own advice and not running pre-release software on a live environment. Instead, we’re running the latest trunk version of bbPress stand-alone which will eventually be 1.1.

    It’s complicated. :)

    All you need to know, is the plugin version sounds like it’s exactly what you want, and it is only a few days away from being a public alpha.

    I want to thank you for making this plugin. It’s been too long that WordPress users have waited for a fully integrated forum.

    I’m also really happy that it’s coming out in a few days. This is just what I need.

    Thanks again.

    I would also like to be able to embed an entire bbpress forum right into a page on my wordpress site. Is the plugin available yet?
