New bbPress Admin


This plugin was created to allow bbPress to be administered from the WordPress and WordPress MU Administration Panels. It is a very basic plugin and uses iframes to provide access to bbPress. It is known to compatible with WordPress and WordPress 2.8.x and bbPress 1.0.x. As it just uses iframes to connect to bbPress, ideally, it will still be compatible with all upcoming versions of bbPress and WordPress. It no longer needs direct editing to set your path to your forums directory!

The login and logout problems have just been fixed as have the problems with header information already being sent. As of now, this is a release with no bugs! Let me know how it works for you!
