    It’s possible, but I don’t see why you’d want to run bbPress 2.x and bbPress 1.x side-by-side if you didn’t have to (like BuddyPress users currently need to do.)

    It’s much easier to do this with bbPress 2.x, and WordPress multisite. Just create a new site, and activate bbPress on it, too. Boom; two forums.

    Hi JJJ

    Thanks for your reply.

    I asked this question mainly as I am not sure which bbPress forum style I like best-bbPress 2010 style or bbPress Kakumei style and wondered if I could somehow use both styles on the same blog.

    I’m sure it is possible to do this but it is not really practical or a good idea!-I should decide which bbPress style I want/prefer and stick with one! Much simpler/easier!

    I suppose if I had the time I could theme up my own bbPress theme as a cross between 2010 & Kakumei but this could take me too much time so I will not try that now!

    My blog actually runs with WordPress multisite so I could always do a new site but this was not really what I meant (but thanks for mentioning it).

    Lastly I’m not really sure what you mean by running bbPress 2 & bbPress 1 side by side like BuddyPress users do? I originally set my blog up for BuddyPress but as I couldn’t seem to get group & sitewide forums to work together I have disabled BuddyPress forum and now am using bbPress forum only.

    Best wishes

    If the theme is all you’re worried about, don’t use bbPress 1.x. It’s outdated and no longer under active development, so you’re investing in a dead-end. bbPress 2.1 can be themed to look like anything you want it to later; you’re better off starting clean with the newer engine than trying to fix up the old one because you like the paint. :)
