  • Here are a couple of good places to start (I have never done this, just edit CSS and template to match myself):

    Thank you Trent. It would be great if bbpress did this automaticly. I am going to try those methodes.

    Yeah John, it would be nice for sure! The thing is that most people use bbPress standalone and not WP integrated. It isn’t too bad just getting used to CSS and editing the template of your theme at bbPress. Just changes to header.php, footer.php, front-page.php and style.css mainly! Good luck!

    I have custome made theme and template, so it probally going to take me a lot of hours to manually change everything in bbpress to wordpress. I am thankfull that you posted the above links. Hopefully it will save me some time.

    Does it integrate the way this site is integrated? Because this site has a couple minor style problems. For example, the header “Simple, fast, elegant” moves around. It doesn’t stay in place when switching between forums and blog.

    The forums here and the blog are done with CSS and their own themes meant to look the same. The tutorials are a way to have bbPress using the WP theme itself I believe.

    Yes, those tutorials and downloads are meant to use the WP theme. They just call the WP header. I tried this one:

    It works like it says it does, but unfortunately for my site, it looks terrible and doesn’t integrate at all. Looks like I’ll have to modify the forums’ style sheet, which isn’t that bad. It’s just that it would be nice if when I modified one, it worked for both.
