    If login works normally, what do you see next to your name after you log in?

    Welcome, ChrisHajer! View your profile (Admin | Log Out)

    or

    Welcome, ChrisHajer! | Log Out

    In the first case, I am keymaster and have admin access. In the second case, I am just a member and have no admin access. I you have the first, click on Admin and you will have access to the bbPress back end.

    If you have the second, the account you’re logging in with might not have keymaster access. There was a plugin to restore keymaster access, but it was good only for up to 0.9. Not sure if it works with 1.0.

    If it doesn’t work, then you will need to edit the permissions directly in the database.

    has this one: Welcome, admin | Admin | Log Out

    I have this problem, always ended up concluding bbPress admin just doesn’t like login cookies set from the WordPress side. It’s a relatively common problem too, so it’s probably worth checking if it’s ever been reported to Trac.

    When you click “Admin” what happens?

    And did you log in at bbPress or WordPress?

    Did you try clearing your browser cookies?

    If you click on Admin, it redirects back to the bbPress core directory if you’ve logged in on the WordPress side, but works fine if you log in on the bbPress side. Clearing browser cookies has no effect.

    Yes. Then it just redirects back to the bbPress core directory. Works fine when i sign in from the forums tho.

    So both Alekseo and Kawauso can both log in on the bbPress side and it’s fine, the problem exists only when logged in at WordPress?

    Correct. There’s been various other incidences of this too:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/admin-link-doesnt-take-me-to-dashboard

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/admin-link-redirects-to-front-page

    Can’t find any others offhand, but it’s not an isolated matter

    Ahhh, I’m having the same issues. I guess this is inherent to the BbPress and WordPress integration. So that’s why. I’m wondering if there have been any solution for this.

    By the way, I also found out that when you are in the same case, i.e., you can’t access the admin when you’re a key master in the first place, you can browse the forums nonetheless and post new topics or reply to them. However, while you’re at it, you can’t mark threads as sticky.

    So the real solution will be to logout and log back in while in bbpress.

    I have just change the domain name of my wp-bbpress integration and I have the very same problem O_O

    Before changing the domain name all worked fine. I deactivated and reactivated the wp integration plugin, I checked all the .htaccess, config files, I disabled the integration but same behaviour.

    Now I’m looking at the database but I still don’t catch the fail.

    Well, Opera browser is returning thie error message

    Warning: parse_url(/forums/bb-login.php?re=http://mydomain.com/forums/?new=1) [function.parse-url]: Unable to parse url in /forums/bb-includes/functions.bb-core.php on line 393

    and in line 393 is get path_function
