Looking for a Bbpress expert

    Looking for a bbPress expert who could help us tie our blog entries to

    appear on the forums via Bbsync and fix a couple of bugs on the


    ••• Troubleshoot and optimise our forums. Right now Dreamhost is forcing us to upgrade our services because they claim our bbpress forums are taking too much of a server hit. Looking for someone to help us optimize our forums.

    ••• Upgrade to the latest version of Bbpress. Right now we’re at .9

    new blog post, this post will be turned into a new topic in your

    forums. Replies can be made to the topic. Comments made through the wp

    comments form will also be shown as replies to the corresponding

    thread. All comments/replies will show up automagically in wordpress,


    ••• Code Buttons:

    Automatically adds an easy access button toolbar above the post

    textarea to allow quick tags in BBcode. This is an enhanced

    replacement for the Comment Quicktags plugin. No template editing


    Requires the BBcode-Lite plugin (or some other kind of BBcode support).

    Some buttons will only appear if the tag is supported (ie. img, center)

    ••• Upload Image Files / Attachments

    This may not work with the version of bbpress and wordpress that are

    compatible. Right now I’m waiting for bbpress to get to full 1.0 to

    upgrade both to WordPress 2.7 and Bbpress 1.0, which my guess will be

    in the next 6-8 months, but hopefully sooner.

    Hiya feast. I like the look of your forum, though something’s not straight – can’t figure out what it is..! ;)

    I’m not a bbPress expert, but an idea occurred to me. As you might not find someone to do everything you want, why not offer a price for each individual piece of work? There’s a post about it at



    You cannot run WP or bbPress smoothly on Dreamhost, moving to a real host should instantly cut your page render time in half. I always recommend against Dreamhost because they use NFS (remote network storage) instead of local drives attached to the machine. This allows them to keep costs down and give away oodles of space but it makes anything with a lot of files to load very slow and impossible to cache. bbPress 1.0 has even more files than 0.9 so the problem is magnified even worse.

    As far as your other needs, the policy here is that you should post a way for people to contact you, usually an email address and then we close the topic. If you want people to contact you via your contact form on your website you can request that instead.

    There are extremely few bbPress pros for hire right now, but you can see my post here for some ideas:



    Yeah. Erm, what she said. :)
