Is it in your
bbPress is not a WordPress plugin. If you uploaded it to wp-content/plugins it’s in the wrong place. bbPress requires its own folder and then you need to go through the installation by accessing your forum online at:
http://www.example.com/bbpress (or ‘forum’ if you renamed the bbpress folder to something else.)
Where should it be uploaded? Into which folder?
1.) Is there an advantage to installing it on a completely separate subdomain? So something like http://forums.MyDomain.com/
I have noticed other people doing this.
2.) Are there any issues with integrating it with my WordPress Blog if it is on a separate subdomain?
1 – advantage to a subdomain? It’s personal preference I think.
2 – integration on a subdomain? Integration is not my strong suit so I can’t say. I’m not sure it’s easy to integrate in a subfolder OR subdomain.
