How To Create A Forum Website Like GitHubNg With WordPress by : 12:10 pm On November 1, 2017

Forums are a great way to manage and increase user interactions on your website. They can be used to build online communities. Creating a forum on your website can be a daunting task, but the availability of the many free and open-source forum software make it really easy. The real issue might arise when integrating one of these with WordPress, without having to create forums on a separate sub-domain (and hence as a separate site). Fortunately, you have a solution for that as well in bbPress – the most popular forum software for WordPress.


Installing bbPress

bbPress is a free forum software built into WordPress as a third-party plugin. It does not require you to log into your cPanel for installation and management (as with other free software such as phpBB). Rather, it can be installed and managed from within your WordPress dashboard. Additionally, you can install more plugins to enhance its features, making it the go-to choice for beginners and even experienced WordPress users. Download the bbpress plugin here www.wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/

To install bbPress, go to your WordPress dashboard, and click on Plugins >> Add New. Search for bbPress, and install the plugin from the search results. Or you can download the plugin as a zip package here www.wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/, and upload it to your WordPress dashboard.

Creating a forum
After installing the plugin, the next thing you should do is create a new Forum. You can see that after installing this plugin, a new tab in your dashboard has appeared labelled Forums. You can create a new forum by going to Forums >> New Forum.

Creating a new forum is just like creating a new post or page in WordPress or just like you would here on nairaland. You can specify a title, permalink, parent forum (if any), and so on. Create all the forums you need this way, and specify a hierarchy.

One done creating all the forums, it’s time to display them on a page. Create a new simply page from the WordPress dashboard, and give it the name “Forums” or similar. Then, enter the following short-code to make all the forums display on that page. [bbp-forum-index] you can post this short-code on any page you want all your forums to appear.
that should do the trick.
