    Hi there. I have created a new forum to go alongside a site of mine.

    lasramblas.eu is the main site and the forum is lasramblas.eu/forum/

    Install was fine. I am using 2 separate db’s, however when i login to the forum as “admin” i then try and view my profile or other posts and they go to my main site?

    any thoughts as to why this may happen?

    thanks Mike

    Never mind, had to default back to a Vanilla Forum..

    If you are at all curious, this was probably either a cookie issue or some kind of mod_rewrite issue.

    Wait wait! I’m having the same problem!

    Fresh install, looks fine, but when I try to view a profile (mine, as I’m so far the only user) it displays my site’s home page.

    I went into Presentation -> Themes, and there’s only one theme there (Kakumei), which was in use. Still no joy.

    Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

    Oh, and I went to http://www.thisisroanoke.com/bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php, copied the text there, and added it to my .htaccess file. (I even copied that file into my bbPress installation directory. No luck.)

    Clicking my profile link tries to take me to http://thisisroanoke.com/forum/profile/1, but ends up giving me my home page (or maybe it’s supposed to be a 404 page — I haven’t set up a proper 404 yet).

    Help! (And thanks!)

    Sounds like your server does not support mod_rewrite, or there are other rewrite rules in another .htaccess file (for WP?) that are conflicting.

    There were a couple good posts by SamBauers regarding the rewrite rules. Here’s one:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/pretty-permalinks-not-working?replies=24#post-7743

    I think if you turn off the pretty permalinks and take that stuff out of your .htaccess file, you’ll find things work again. Then, you just need to figure out how to get them working on your server.

    Ah, you were right. With pretty permalinks off it works. Now I have to figure out how to get bbPress to play nice with WordPress. Hmm.

    Thanks much!
