I’m going to install bbpress on my site, but I have a few questions.
1. can I get people to sign up to the site in order to post there questions and read questions, will bbpress allow me to do that?
2. can I add users specifically for moderators to answers questions etc.

The answer is yes to both :)

Is that easy to do?
I have just installed bbpress, not sure if I’m stupid, I’ve been following the videos and the forum I have just put has no table like yours has.

Here’s the solution :)

Do I had the files to the canvas theme or child theme>

Sorted thanks for that. The text is bunched up against the side on the left, can that be resolved?

Can you tell how I go about making sure people sign up to the site before they read and post in the forum?
How do I add moderators to the site?

1) Add the bbpress login widget
2) Just add them as a new user and choose the moderator option for user role.

I just have question on bbpress vs wordpress.
If I make someone a moderator on bbpress can they only access the forum and not wordpress?
What I’m asking is, in order for someone to contribute to both the forum and add posts etc to wordpress, do they need to create separate accounts, bbpress use and wp use?

"I must say what a hidden gem Pootlepress is, I learnt so much in the one-days training, in fact, it became invaluable knowledge when our previous websites became corrupted, and after the initial panic, I managed to set-up our two main websites within 2 days. The Academy is an amazing resource, easy to use, extremely helpful; in fact, you should put your price up.
I am so glad I googled WordPress courses

“Thank you SOOO much for making the Whitelight videos…they totally solved every question I had. I followed along step by step, and after a little while I had gotten my entire site set up! You saved me so much time and made things so easy…I don’t know how to thank you enough. I think it’s quite safe to say that I would never ever figured out how to get all those Woo-Component steps done unless you walked me through it and showed me exactly what to do.
Whitelight is so much more complicated than Headlines was…so I even though I had built WordPress blogs before, I found myself completely lost with this new theme (but Whitlelight is so great I just had to use it!). The WooThemes tutorials were no help at all because they’re so general, and Whitelight has about a million special tricks. Now that WordPress and Woo Framework are getting more and more sophisticated, I’ll definitely profit from watching all your other WordPress video tutorials, too.”

"The internet is an ocean of information on Wordpress, but you can narrow it all down to just one place where you can find structured, organized and what really just works in one place, Pootlepress... The information presented on videos is very precise and worth every penny of the yearly membership.. It's just like having your own private library on ' Wordpress how to ', that keeps growing. I thoroughly recommend it."
"I have recently joined the Pootlepress Academy and worked my way through the 15 videos for tutorial 1
They are excellent and have helped me develop a basic website for my girlfriend's driving school."
"Within a few hours I managed to create the site. Now–for anyone else unsure on joining the Academy I am aged 54 with a little knowledge of WordPress. The video tutorials are easy to follow and understand. Ideal for who wants to work at their own pace!
Well done Jamie and the team."
