    Hi.
    Can someone please help me here. I'm using Wordpress and BBpress. I want to add a new Forum but I can't seem to find BBpress on the Forum software list. Only MyBB and phpBB is closest.
    So which one do I choose for uploading "theforumwheel.php". And where do I upload it in Wordpress?

    Thanks...

    bbPress hasn't been added to our list of supported software packages yet. This isn't a problem however. We are happy to add software support upon user request.

    Development for bbPress will be complete with a few hours or less.

    A big thanks Ken.
    Sorry to ask, but how can I upload the file to Wordpress, since pages are generated in MySQL database.

    Login to your hosting control panel and access the file manager. Go to the root directory of your Wordpress installation and upload the file there.

    Hi Ken. I already did. But it's still giving the error "Our validation scripts could not be found on your server".
    I noticed that bbPress isn't listed in the information area. Would it make a difference?
    Thanks.

    Remove the "/forums" line from the URL and it should go through. Since "/forums/" isn't an actual folder, it's not a directory where the file can be placed. So the writers will just have to make one extra click. Hopefully I can find a workaround but that's the only option for now.

    It wouldn't stop you from submitting the site but it would cause future inconveniences.

    I've added bbPress to the software list.

    Unfortunately that didn't work also. Removed the "/forums".
    I've placed the file in my root directory and it still couldn't find it. I've also tried disabling my firewall and security settings...didn't work.

    Any ideas? :confused:

    Do you see a file named "wp-config.php" in your root directory?

    Hi Ken. Now it's working. Had to change some .htaccess settings to see the file in my root. Appreciate your help :)

    There still seem to be a few issues connecting to the site. Our system is unable to connect with the file which prevents users from subscribing.

    They can't merge the accounts? Is it something from my side?

    Something on your end is still blocking our system from accessing "theforumwheel.php".

    Try disabling .htaccess momentarily by adding ".txt" to the end. I will then attempt to connect. If it runs through correctly then we know that .htaccess is the issue.

    .htaccess is disabled. I've also lowered my firewall security settings. Let me know :)

    Hi Ken. I've noticed that "lokielovesbunny" has subscribed to my website through TFW. Please let me know if it's working. Thanks!

    Yes, it appears to be working. I just subscribed and it ran through perfectly. Now we just need to figure out which .htaccess line was causing the problem.

    Thanks Ken. I'll run through the lines and will let you know. I'll keep it disabled for the moment. Thanks again :)

    The URL seems to be a little screwed up. Shouldn't it be "easymind.com" instead of "easymind.com/home"? What's the difference exactly? Is '/home' a directory or a friendly URL extension?
