To use a plugin, simply create a directory in your main bbPress directory called
my-plugins and put the plugin file in it.
Then go to your bbPress admin and click the Plugins tab. You’ll find a list of the plugins in your my-plugins directory.
Activate the new plugin by clicking the Activate link.
bbPress has a plugin API that functions exactly the same as WordPress’. All the familiar functions such as do_action(), add_filter() and so forth are found in bbPress. One of our goals is to make bbPress as pluggable as possible. If you have suggestions for new hooks or other improvements, please let us know.
Note: All plugins must have a plugin header. Below is an example.
/* Plugin Name: Name of your plugin required Plugin URI: Plugin's website Description: Short description of your plugin Author: Your name Author URI: Your website Version: Current version number of your plugin */
