Header Invalid

  • I downloaded the plugin for WordPress 2.8.4, and tried activating it. However, when I activated it, I was taken to a page that said, “This plugin does not have a valid header.” What does that mean? I am so excited about using bbpress, but I can’t. :(

    bbPress is not a plugin for WordPress. It should not be in your wp-content/plugins folder. It will be installed right along side WordPress, not inside WordPress as a plugin.

    Right now you have WordPress installed in a folder called “Blog”. You need to put bbPress in a folder called “Forum” or whatever public URL you want your forum to be known as, and start the installation there. is you put it into a folder called “Forum” at the same level as Blog in the directory tree.

    It’s not a plugin for WordPress, that’s why you received that error.
