Confused… is bbPress a WP plug-in?
I am really confused about how bbPress works…
I have taken over a website from a previous administrator. I replaced the WordPress site completely with a new one I developed. There was already a bbPress forum (a whole separate SQL database), so I just added a menu item to my site that linked to the existing forum directly. http://www.oakridgeoutlaws.org
Now I need to work on customizing the forum. Since I originally developed my new WP site on my own computer using WAMP I thought I would add bbPress there first to play around with it. So, from WordPress, I added the bbPress plug-in and followed the the instructions. I can make a forum show up on a page, but it is not like what is on the public server. On the real website there is a whole other SQL database for the forum. On my local site, there is just a bbpress folder in my plugins folder.
I saw a comment on another thread here that said “bbPress is not a WordPress plug-in. It is a stand-alone software.” What am I missing? What did I download when I added a plugin called bbPress?
Thank you for putting up with a confused newbie.
