Installation

From your WordPress dashboard

  1. Visit ‘Plugins > Add New’
  2. Search for ‘bbPress’
  3. Activate bbPress from your Plugins page. (You will be greeted with a Welcome page.)

From WordPress.org

  1. Download bbPress.
  2. Upload the ‘bbpress’ directory to your ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory, using your favorite method (ftp, sftp, scp, etc…)
  3. Activate bbPress from your Plugins page. (You will be greeted with a Welcome page.)

Once Activated

  1. Visit ‘Forums > Add New’ and create some forums. (You can always delete these later.)
  2. If you have pretty permalinks enabled, visit example.com/forums/, or if you do not have pretty permalinks enabled, visit example.com?post_type=forum
  3. Visit ‘Settings > Forums’ and configure the settings to best match the needs of your community.
  4. Visit ‘Tools > Forums > Import Forums’ if you have an existing forum to convert to bbPress.

Once Configured

  • bbPress comes with a robust theme-compatibility API that does its best to make bbPress look and feel right with just-about any WordPress theme. You may need to adjust some styling on your own to make everything look pristine.
  • You may want to customize the register/activation/sign-in/lost-password flows, to better suit your site. bbPress comes with a bevy of shortcodes to make this possible, listed here: https://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/
  • bbPress also comes with built-in support for Akismet and BuddyPress, two very popular and very powerful WordPress plugins. If you’re using either, visit your Forum Settings page and ensure that integration appears correct.

We have used bbPress for several years to power the support forums on Organic Themes. It's an amazing plugin! It's hard to believe it's completely free. We would like to say thanks to the amazing team that has built and maintained bbPress! For any considering the plugin, you may need to add some styles to your theme to get the forums looking exactly how you want. Don't get discouraged. That's to be expected for integrating any plugin of this scale. Trust me, it's worth the minimal effort for such great software.

I have been using this bbpress for 2 years now and am still happy. Time for the rating 🙂 Many thanks to the developers! Hard to believe that this is all free of charge...

J'ai perdu plusieurs journées pour essayer de configurer ce module. J'ai même réinstaller complètement mon site, 30 pages, croyant à une erreur d'un plugin. Mais non, c'est Bbpress qui génère un code pourri au niveau du rendu. J'ai d'abord eu des grands placards blancs, généré pour une div de simple-translate, qui apparaissaient sous mes forums. Après réinstallation, totale, sur une installation fraiche, le rendu complètement pourri, illisible. J'ai installé Asgaros Forum avec une facilité déconcertante. A fuir
