Where do you activate it?

    I uploaded the plugin from this site, though it does not show up in my list of available plugins to activate. How is this done?

    Thanks.

    Is it in your my-plugins folder?

    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.)

    Hi chrishajer,

    Where should it be uploaded? Into which folder?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    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?

    Thank you.

    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.
