WPMU + Buddypress + BBPress = hat trick of awesome

WPMU + Buddypress + BBPress = hat trick of awesome

Whoa, I can't believe I overlooked this news. (Actually, yes I can - Ron was sick, my "baby" turned eight years old, and now I'm sick).

BuddyPress officially released a public beta. You can hear everyone's buddy Andy discuss the project on WordPress Weekly.

And then BBPress reached a milestone.

WPMU 2.7 still hasn't been released, but the trunk is not as buggy as you might expect.

And, reported by a few people you can run them all *together*.

I think I need to go lie down.

Update: The Revered Jim (who I'm sure never sleeps) has edupunked this all into submission and whipped up a *tutorial* for it.

    ‘whoa’ was my anti-spam word and it’s entirely appropriate in this case.

    “I think I gotta go lay down” 🙂

    Yep. BuddyPress, Mu and bbPress are gonna be the terrible trio of the net in about 10 minutes. I’ve been playing with the combo for about 3 months now and I wake up just itching to get back at it.

    There is another unmentioned piece of this pie that I was introduced to purely out of frustration. XMLRPC. I was having trouble integrating my buddypress, mu and bbpress all together to talk XMLRPC so that bp can access bbpress forums. Just wasn’t working. Out of frustration I pointed my mu/bp install to a bbpress install on another server.

    XMLRPC fired right up and was talking to the remote bbpress forum install. Whoa. What?!

    I had to go lay down then. For sure. With XMLRPC multiple mu installs can share posts, categories, tags. Multiple and disparate bbpress installs can talk together. This ain’t you mamma’s RSS feeds either. This is lovely low level stuff.

    I think I’m gonna have to go take a cold shower.
