    @aronprins

    Hey guys,

    Working on a new project, and would like to integrate bbpress plugin into my existing theme.

    How can i get his to work? Ive copied the bbpress folder from inside the plugin to my themes folder, added the support for bbpress in the functions file but the forum wont show up with the themes from the bbpress folder.

    see install: http://magic.unique-masters.com/forums/

    Thanks in advance! cheers,

    Aron

    Since you’re manually adding theme support to your existing theme (as opposed to letting bbPress do it for you) you’ll need to move the other single/archive/page template files from bbp-twentyten into your existing theme too.

    John,

    Thanks for your reply! bbPress did not do that, does that have anything to do with folder permissions?

    cheers

    Sorry; I don’t understand the question. bbPress won’t move any files for you on its own. You mentioned that you’ve physically moved files (hopefully you copied, and did not remove them from the bbPress folder.) By putting

    add_theme_support( 'bbpress' );

    in your theme, you’re telling bbPress “I don’t need your help anymore and I have everything under control.” If you didn’t copy all of the files correctly, then bbPress won’t know what to do. :)

    My dashboard now shows this under forums.

    Theme natively supports bbPress

    You are using bbPress 2.0-beta-1.

    Progress!
