    Hi! Great video! I want to ask you a question: I have installed a forum in Word Press and it is a virtual campus. I need to establish different roles and that they can visualize all the forums. It happens that I installed the bbP Toolkit, and it only shows me 52 forums created in the Closed Forum tab, when there are about 90. Is there a solution to the problem?

    Can I ad a forum to my existing website?. I do not want to affect my website but I do want a website where they can register and interact, is it possible

    Another great one! So as it is April 2018 you had mentioned you were working on another Forum Video with a different platform/plugin. I have not been able to find it? I love BB press but like you said it has limitations, and what i am seeing out there once you add up all the add ons to make it custom it is coming out to over $150. Love to hear what you were using. Thank you

    Thanks for the video Darrel! In order for people to use your forum, do they have to have word press accounts or have the programs installed, or is it just like an online forum anyone can use and post within once registered?

    Hi Darrel, Another great video. I have my bbpress/buddy press forum up and running with the buddypress sidebar for Login and other widgets. The trouble is the background is transparent and we are unable to see the text in the sidebar. Is there a way to change the background of the sidebar to make the text visible. Thanks for any help. Terry.
