    but I do not understand the wording of a step for stand alone installation of bbPress 2.0. I’ve downloaded it, and added it to my FTP, but I don’t get this step:

    4.Visit the intended URL of the bbPress site

    what does this mean? I mean, i get the idea of what it means, go to if that’s where i want the forum. okay great, but that doesn’t do anything by itself.

    Do I need to set up a blank page for the forum? And if so, how does that do anything for the installation process? I feel like there’s more steps here, something obvious I’m missing, but i’m not sure what.

    After activating the plugin I would do 2 things.

    1. go to admin-settings-forums (in the admin panel) and click save.

    2. go to admin-settings-permalinks (in the admin panel) and click save.

    The reason for those steps, although probably unnecessary, is to set the permalinks for everything. Like I said, probably not needed, but can’t hurt.

    Then if you didn’t change anything on the forums settings, you can go to and there they are.

    *Next you may want to add a link to the forums in your website navigation so that people can find them.
