Integrating bbpress into my own community website…

  • Hi folks,

    I like the simplicity of the bbpress forum very much. Since I’m currentlu developing my own travel community (which is a pretty huge project with a blogging system, member profile pages etc) I’m looking at the question which forum I should use.

    How hard is it to connect bbpress to an existing member database? I also want to customise the forum heavily so that it fits exactly into my design.

    Are there any tutorials or good posts that cover this issue extensively? Or do you recommend using an entirely different forum script for this matter? If so, I need a very very simplistic one.

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Are you using WordPress or WordPress MU for your blogging system? If so then the integration is really easy and simple. I would suggest taking a look at these tutorials:

    hi there,

    thanks for the quick reply. No, I’m not using WordPress. It’s a self-made community system. Actually I’m not the one who programmed it, I’ve just designed and produced all the templates. But I’m also the one who decides what way to go with the forum.

    Has anyone here successfully integrated bbpress into their own website with 3rd party member database etc.?

    I am also looking for same thing. I would really appreciate any help in this regard.

    Can I use bbpress functions as library functions in my code to register user in bbpress, login in bbpress and logout from bbpress programmatically?

    If there are some direct functions available for these needs, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.
