Cookie & Integration With WordPress Install
So I’m a compentent user / php programmer and maybe I’ve just skipped over the same steps over and over again? Not sure.
My wordpress install operates on the base domain address
My forums operates on a subdomain address
Now bbpress has no problem allowing WP users to log in. However everyone is assigned to an inactive role. Also the user has to sign in again at the bbpress site.
Now I know what you’re going to say about issue 1 – user role mapping has to be setup. Done. Doesn’t work. Weird huh? I even re-submitted my user role mapping, and then created a new user in wp, and logged in as him. He also has no role assigned in bbpress.
And I know what you’ll initially ask about the cookies. I’ve verified my site and blog address (www.domain.com) and I’ve made changes to both wp and bb config.php files for the auth key, secure auth key, and logged in keys to match between the two installations. I’ve also addedd the definitions for cookie_domain (.domain.com) and cookiepath (/). I’ve also cleared all cookies and confirmed the new cookie assigned has the .domain.com address.
(Off-topic, but a lot of content on this site is related to older and outdated versions of software – this site is in dire need of updating. And since wordpress.org uses the forum software you should probably maintain a clean well documented site over here.)
