    My bbPress does not want to show graphics and log me on.

    It looks like if i would run it from my disk, without xampp.

    Here is my config.php

    <?php

    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’); // The name of the database

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘admin’); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘precision’); // …and password

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    // If your bbPress URL is http://bbpress.example.com/forums/ , the examples would be correct.

    // Adjust the domain and path to suit your actual URL.

    // Just the domain name; no directories or path. There should be no trailing slash here.

    $bb->domain = ‘http://my-cool-forums.example.com’; // Example: ‘http://bbpress.example.com’

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘Thinker’;

    // This must be set before running the install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘v@m.com’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    // The number of topics that show on each page.

    $bb->page_topics = 30;

    // A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.

    $bb->edit_lock = 60;

    // Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.

    $bb->gmt_offset = 0;

    // Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the

    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.

    // For example, install de.mo to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’

    // to enable German language support.

    define(‘BBLANG’, ”);

    // Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage

    // of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at

    // http://wordpress.com/api-keys/

    $bb->akismet_key = ”; // Example: ’0123456789ab’

    // The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave the rest as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ”; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ”; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash. Example: ‘http://example.com’

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ”; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash. Example: ‘http://example.com’

    /* Stop editing */

    if ( !defined(‘BBPATH’) )

    define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

    require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );

    ?>

  • I am not sure what problems you are having exactly. Is it the same as your last post on this issue? If so, chrishajer wanted to help you in this reply.

    I see from your screenshot and your config.php file above that you haven’t edited it to your circumstance. You have to put in the values that correspond to your install for these parts here:

    $bb->domain = 'http://my-cool-forums.example.com'; // Example: 'http://bbpress.example.com'
    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. '/' is fine if the site is in root.
    $bb->path = '/'; // Example: '/forums/'

    Right now, you have the my-cool-forums.example.com and that has to be the URL of your install. Does your system work with an IP address or http://localhost or how do you access it. That will be part of the reason the graphics don’t work as that portion isn’t correct.

    @chrishajer

    Why is this not ‘http://localhost’ in your config?

    $bb->domain = ‘http://my-cool-forums.example.com’;

    Seems like it would be looking for a subdomain of example.com is you use that in your config. In this screenshot, the browser status bar shows that it is looking for http://my-cool-forums.example.com

    http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/6812/untitled2sy5.png (look at the status on the bottom left, why is that there?)

    Does that URL also appear in the source of the rendered page, which you took a screenshot of? So, if you right click in the browser window, and select “view source” does that URL appear (the example.com one)?
