This is for an absolute newbie who knows only the most basic of php: I am following the Pageline README file for installing Platform Forum and integrating it into my Platform Pro with WordPress; however, when I reach the step to activate the Theme under "Appearance", there is nothing there for me to activate. I have installed and activated Platform Pro; I have installed bbPress; I have activated the forum options in "custom code"; I have placed the PlatformForum folder into the bb-templates folder, but I don't know how to activate the forum theme. Please let me know what I should do or how I might proceed. Thanks-

This is to be done in the bbPress admin, not the WordPress admin. Thanks, Bryan

Not specific enough. What has to be done under bbPress admin?

I get this message when I try to activate through the bbPress admin: Deep Integration With WordPress Required It appears your WordPress installation isn't deeply integrated which is required for Platform Forum to work correctly (it needs access to WP functions). More info: Your WordPress install needs to be loaded on your forum pages, so we can use WP's functions. This is done by "including" (with a line of code) the wp-load.php file from WordPress. For help, please see bbPress.org, the info here deep integration with WordPress and contact your host for the path to include your WP install.

I've listed some resources above you can use to cross reference what you've done, but I know for one you probably haven't added the appropriate line of code to your bb-config.php file (reference the bottom of the first link)

Thanks a lot. I appreciate your help. Fortunately, I was able to find help in some of the documentation and from someone at my provider. I knew I had to add the line of code, just didn't know where in the file to place it. Now, I have another new, but separate issue...lol...
