Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding forum navigation, part of WordPress DIY: Community Website.
- With bbPress up and running on the site…and our Forums created,…we have to take a couple of more steps…to allow people to actually interact with the Forums.…The first one is we need to make it easy…for people to actually get to the Forums.…Because as you know, right now,…the only way you can get to the Forum…is by going to address bar…and typing in Forums at the end of the url.…We have to add a button to our main menu…that allows people to go directly to the Forums.…And we should also make sure that they are aware…of these Submission Guidelines…and that Submission Guidelines are related to the Forums.…
Any time we make a forum…or any other type of submission form,…or submission functionality on your site,…it's important to allow people to know…exactly what it means when they submit content to your site.…That means, what happens to the content,…who edits the content, who owns the content,…and how can they get their content…removed from the site later.…All of this should go in the Submission Guidelines…and the Submission Guidelines should be clearly related…
