    Hi – I’ve just started using bbPress and am fairly new to it. I’ve searched as best I can through this forum to find answers to my questions but to no avail.
    So, I have a current site with hundreds of post and page comments which I would like to turn into a forum for ease of navigation.
    I’ve installed bbPress 2.5.7 and also bbPress Topics for Posts 1.8.1 (I noticed this hasn’t been updated for a long time).
    I’ve managed to get the post comments into the forum – so that’s all fine and dandy.
    Now I can’t seem to get the page comments into the forum. How is this done?
    Additionally – the interface is not very intuitive. If a new customer comes to the site and wants to ask a question they are greeted with “You must be logged in to reply to this topic” but there is no obvious place or link for them to “log in” so they can post a comment. Is there a work around for this so they don’t need to “log in”?

    you can allow anonymous users to post

    dashboard>settings>forums> and tick anonymous posting, but you may regret letting everyone post.

    Thanks Robin. Yea – that’s not a good idea at all – unless there is a way to set it up so that all posts have to be moderated before they go live?
    Also, do you have any ideas about getting the page comments onto the forum?
