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.

OOB the forum looks very raw and absolutely DOES NOT follow the active theme. It also produced some artifacts that the dev refused to even look into.

Bonjour, BBpress est un chouette programme, le souci est que je suis obligé de revenir à la version 2.5.14 car dès que je passe à l'une des versions récentes le forum rencontre de nombreux soucis, pb horodatage, sujets qui disparaissent, édition d'un post impossible sans perdre le sujet complet, bref, compliqué ! Je précise que j'ai changé d'hébergeur et de thème ces derniers mois... c'est bien BBPRESS le souci... J'attends la version 2.6.7 avec espoir...

I had installed this to test it out and had deactivated it, and it broke admin access to my site, twice, overwriting permissions for my admin account. NEVER touching this plugin again, especially after reading that this has been an ongoing issue for years now. Cost me a lot of time and effort, not to mention IT fees in order to diagnose the issue so that I could access the admin tools to delete it. Goodbye! I will be sure to find your other plugins and avoid them as well.
