How to administer 100 bbpress forums from 1 user interface?

  • I want to convert a hundred of my blogs to forum using simplebb. One potential issue is administering those forums. Is there a script/plugin to administer all posts/members from 1 user interface?

    Rescued from Akismet. I don’t think it’s a spammer…



    What’s ironic is that while the question itself is not spam, what is the purpose of 100 blogs/forums, so automated they have to be controlled from one location?

    ie. Sounds like possible search engine spam to me.

    But if there’s an honest use, please correct me.



    While I have never needed to administrate 100 bbpress installs I have had the need to administrate 3 and it was a pain having to keep each one up to date with plugins etc.

    I’m not sure what exactly OP means when he says “administrate”, but if all that is required is the ability to run multiple forums from one set of core/plugins/templates the solution I came up with was to hack the wordpress virtual multiblog plugin to work with bbpress. It was fairly easy as bbpress and wordpress cores are quite similar.

    each forum has its own database and VMB simply loads a different config file for each forum.
