bbPress installation conundrum!
Hi everyone. I’m currently trying to implement bbPress into my WP site.
I managed to install it fine, the problem is that neither bbPress nor my website actually work together in any way.
For example, having installed bbPress to my root directory I could access the bbPress forum but it was entirely independent of my site, and had no “home” button to return to my site. Whilst my site had no forum button to physically travel to the forum.
It is as if I’d made two separate websites. Is this normal?
Having installed the bbPress plugin also, this did integrate into my site, in the correct position (within the confines of the page). However by doing this method in the dashboard it states:
“Your active theme does not include bbPress template files. Your forums are using the default styling included with bbPress”.
So I have a conundrum:
1. If I use the plugin it lacks most vital features.
2. If I install directly to the root directory, bbPress becomes an entirely separate entity from my website with no ability (that I can see) to return back to my homepage.
Is there a way of installing the plugin (as this places it where I need it to be) but also have the features of the independent bbPress site I made by manually installing to the root?
(am I making any sense at all?)
