We needed to convert a website we had given up on last year, to a forum and so we worked through an evaluation fo several different products before settling on bbPress, the free forum for WordPress.

The video discusses:

  • bbPress, BuddyPress, phpBB and other Forum tools that can be used with WordPress.
  • bbPress friendly WordPress themes like Ruby, Hestia, ShoppingCart, MagBook and other are installed to show how bbPress forum’s can easily be customized.
  • new features brought to bbPress using plugins like bbPress WP Tweaks and GD bbPress Tools.

Great video, super helpful. The only hole with bbpress that I’ve found is that when a user puts in an incorrect username or password it redirects to my actual wordpress login page. For obvious security reasons, I do not want this to happen. Is there a way to redirect this to the forum login page when that happens? Thanks.

    Hi Jeff;

    Thanks for the comment. I understand your concern but I shut down my bbPress site so I have little access to play. Sorry.
