I have searched this forum already and only found old threads so am looking for upto date info.
I have a wordpress website with a artisteer theme. I want to add a forum to it which is simple and secure and where I can add google or amazon ads later on.
Can I just install a simple pluging like bbpress and that will just use the current artisteer theme and just add a forum to a page that I make or is it more complicated than that ?
Also I did read about a seperate forum which I would install using cpanel onto a sub folder of my currnet site like below.
You should install bbPress to a subfolder of your site. For instance if your site url is
you should put bbPress in
Of course the subfolder doesn't have to be named bbPress
I just want the simplest way that will work and give me a header like the current one on my wordpress site.
This is the site I want to add the forum to - http://www.googlenexus7tablet.co.uk
P.S. I am not a coder, so thats why it needs to be simple.
