bbpress is just a plugin that sits within wordpress, so you would just install it and typically have a menu entry to
Step by step guide to setting up a bbPress forum – Part 1
Many thanks for that!
One and last question: does bbPress creates all forum files by itself (or uses existing WordPress pages within website) or will it need anything ‘external’ (such as completely external forum hosted by someone else). Please forgive me my ignorance as I’m a bit ‘old date’ from past times when website was a website only and forums were completely separated story 🙂
Please forgive me my ignorance – don’t worry we were all there when we started !!
bbpress uses the wordpress database and pages so is contained entirely within wordpress.
at it’s simplest, just put a ‘custom link’ menu entry of url ‘/fourms/’ and navigation label of ‘forums’ into your menu.
Alternately create a page with a title of say ‘forums’ and put [bbp-forum-index] in the content.
Many thanks Robin!
You’re a star,
and have a great weekend!
