global $variables in header not passed to body
I’m seeing some interesting behavior. Though I am a php rookie it seems like what I am trying to do should work.
I include some code in the header that parses cookies and sets variables appropriately. I use the exact same code and approach in WordPress and it works perfectly.
This is at the top of my bbpress header.php:
global $research_subscriber; // '1' if user is research subscriber
global $forums_subscriber; // '1' if user is forums subscriber
if (condition) $nyquist_research_subscriber=1;
if (condition) $nyquist_forums_subscriber=1;
Just to make sure, I echo’ed out the variables afterward within header.php and they are all being set as expected.
Later on, in files that include header.php (topic.php or front-page.php) by invoking bb_get_header(), I attempt to access these global variables and they are all null.
Why are these variables not being passed? Why does this work in WordPress but not BBpress? What am I missing (bangs head against wall)?
