Help me grasp the bbPress flow
I’m going to build a sports fan site which will have a discussion group/forum area. I’ve got pretty deep WP experience on the admin side, and have written my own themes and plugins in the past in PHP.
I’m trying to grasp the structure and flow of bbPress. I installed it on a dev server and have been playing around and still not really sure how it is supposed to work. It’s not terribly intuitive to me.
I create a forum, but it is inside the “forums” so my ugly url is mysite.com/forums/forum/forumname. That’s kind of poo, but fine. After I create the forum I see nowhere to create a new post in the front end. So I create a topic in the back end and try to attach it to a forum, but it will only attach to certain forums and not others. Haven’t figured that out yet.
How do I simply have one forum with sub topics like this:
—football posts go in here
—baseball posts go in here
—basketball posts go in here
Any input would be great.
