    Please can anyone help. I tried to integrate bbpress with my wordpress blog by going into bbpress admin page and doing something with -wp admin

    Now none of my users or me as admin are recognised and it won’t even send me an e mail.

    Is there any way back in?????

    maybe a bit more about what you did “something to do with wp-admin”? are you sharing the same database for wordpress and bbpress?

    i just tried to register and see you’re problem..

    [Table 'englisl5_bulletinboard.wp_users' doesn't exist]

    …so you were installing to share your user table with wordpress,

    are you able to look at your database?

    Ermm, is that my sql database in the cpanel of my hoster?

    let’s take that as a no. go to this page bb-admin/options-wordpress.php

    go down to User database table prefix the value there should be “wp_” is it?

    Hmm. I think that because it doesn’t recognise anybody I can’t get to that page at all.

    the first thing I would do at this point is get a backup of your database. In Cpanel, (i don’t use) i’m sure there’s a myphpadmin button somewhere. Call you’re host and get em to point you to it. once there.. hit export, and get a .sql format and export again to one you can read (excel). I’m guessing here, but it looks like the prefix on the user tables is the problem. englisl5_bulletinboard. is not being found but the rest of your tables are.. or perhaps when you tried to “doing something” with wp-admin, you meant wp-config.php check in that file .. and this line. “$table_prefix = ‘wp_’;” .. or if you can give me more info on what you did perhaps i can help.

    You should just be able to edit your bb-config.php in /forum/bbpress/

    Look for $bb_table_prefix = ‘englisl5_’; and change englisl5_ to what ever is set in your WordPress wp-config.php

    Actually I made such a mess of it all that I uninstalled and started again!! I only had a few posts.

    Thanks guys!

    My real need is to have nice big comment boxes like these ones on this page under my blog posts in my blog http://englishforuniversity.com

    Does that mean that I have to choose a whole new theme do you think?
