My second BBPress forum – very customised, new features, high profile

  • After the success with the Nissan Cube Owners Club forum (, when one of my clients asked about a forum I decided again to use BBPress.

    I run the website for a UK TV Nature Presenter called Kate Humble and wanted to use a forum that could be integrated with the rest of the site (which is in WordPress) and have the same look and feel. I think it’s turned out pretty nicely and the new users are enjoying and participating.

    The URL is

    It’s running a very customised theme obviously, a new homepage and I’ve also removed the tags feature.

    I’ve installed a few plugins, modified a few too and I’ve also implemented the new Facebook “like” feature on the top of every topic. If I get time (and enough interest) maybe I’ll try and implement this as a BBPress plugin.

    Because this time it lives in a sub folder instead of a sub domain, one of the technical hurdles I had to get round was the WordPress .htaccess file conflicting with it so all I had to do was put 1 line of code in the root .htaccess file telling it to ignore (and stop processing) everything in /forum.

    Let me know what you think :)
