Installing BB press in different folder than wp-content

  • maxasher


    Hello, for security concerns on creation of my site I renamed my wp-content folder to something else. Now upon installation of BBpress I don’t see any of the options in the dashboard. It looks like in the plugin itself its coded to search for wp-content. Is there a way to override this so it can find it and function properly?

    Thanks for help.

    If having themes and plugins in wp-content was a security issue, then WordPress all over the world would be hacked daily, and if wp-content is insecure then all wordpress folders would be and the locations of the wordpress core are all standard.

    I’d just put bbpress into a wp-content folder

    If you really want to stick with your route, then search the whole bbpress plugin for “wp-content” and just do a copy/paste. it may be one occurance, it could be hundreds.

    Of course you’ll need to repeat on any upgrade
