Any of you who are WordPress users may find this of interest … I’ve been playing around with a copy of bbPress lately, and though it’s still in its infantile stages so far I’m pretty pleased with the way it’s turning out.
I had been wanting to add a set of user forums; and because bbPress can be integrated with WordPress, this adds advantages, including shared login information — basically any user who has a username and password for the NWC website will also have one for NWL.
I’ve tried to match it up as close as possible to the main site without looking too “off” and feel that I’ve done a pretty good job. The theme it’s using is my modified version of the default bbPress template, so nothing fancy, just a new set of images and moved a few things around. :)
- Allow Images 0.7.1
- Avatar .73a
- bbEmoticons version 0.72
- Memberlist .73c
- Google Sitemap Generator .6
- BBPress Private Messaging 0.73
- Use Display Name 0.7.2
- Online List 1.3-fix
- WordPress Integration .7
- Post Notification 1.2
- My Resolve Title 0.1
- Limit Latest Discussion 0.73
(all plugs found via the bbPress forums :))
Skinning this thing has been a bear, but everything else has been relatively easy as pie thanks to those who’ve posted these plugins, the FAQ and other solutions in the bbPress forums. The forum users and mods have been really helpful. :)
Feel free to drop by and let me know what you think! Feedback would be greatly appreciated. I’ve checked it on Firefox 2.0 and IE 6.0 but would love to hear from users of other browsers! :)
I’m still ironing out a last handful of bugs (mainly spacing issues) and will most likely release the theme when finished.
