Where can I activate bbPress plugins?

  • Hi, I’m new to bbPress and have a question:

    I’ve installed ppBress 2-0-beta 3 in WordPress 3.2.1

    I made a directory /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/my-plugins and put in two plugins:

    BBcode-lite.php and allow-images.php

    Where can i activate them? They don’t show up in the plugin list /wp-admin/plugins.php and i don’t see a list with the forum-settings. And the plugins don’t seen to be working.

    What am i missing here?

    Plugins for bbPress (2.x) work just like other WordPress plugins.

    So install them like any other WordPress plugin, you don’t need to make a directory in the bbpress directory and put em there or anything.

    Make sure they’re compatible with bbPress 2.x though.

    @pimarts: thanks :)

    I can activate them now.

    It would be nice when the readme.txt of the plugins would tell me that too ;)

    It still doesn’t work, no buttons to make up the text or add images in sight though , i will look further.



    Are you sure the plugins are made for bbPress 2.x? Otherwise you’ll be spending a lot of time looking into it without any result in the end ;)

    Well actually, all I want is some buttons for text markup and links and a way for users to add a picture to the post. Apparently the plugins I picked can’t do that.

    I really like bbPress a lot, as far as i can see. It’s simple and the visitors of the site i’m building it for aren’t geeks, so it looks just perfect. But adding a picture and links would be nice.



    You might want to give this one a try:

    @pimarts, Thanks :) looks good, i will try it.
