Post-install login not working, grrrrr

    I have a WP blog I wanted to integrate with, so I set $bb->wp_table_prefix, $bb->wp_home, and $bb->wp_siteur to their respective values in config.php.

    I can tell this worked because the install did not create a bbPress user table. Good.

    The install went smoothly. I set the Key Master to “admin”. So far so good. Right after, I tried to log in as “admin”. No dice.

    I went to my WP blog, logged in as “admin” with my usual pw, got in fine. Changed the pw. Went back to bbPress, tried with the new pw, no dice.

    My bbPress install just won’t log me on with “admin”. What’s going on?

    Do I need to install the WP-bbPress integration plugin(s)?

    Maybe I’ll try them anyway. TIA.

    Im having exactly the same problem, where do you get the plugins?

    hi blake,

    http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/4?replies=1

    i tried that, no dice.

    i also found my WP install to be at version 2.0, so I upgraded to 2.0.5, still no dice.

    if you come up with anything, please respond in this thread.

    thx

    Could you describe what you are seeing or give us some URL’s to check out?

    I am having hte same issue. I cannot login to the forum with any logins created during install (key master) or registering. I am trying to integrate my WP with bbp. Any thoughts?

    Take a look at a post like:

    As well, make sure you have the plugins for integration loaded. One in WordPress and the other in bbPress.

    Also, it integrates well if you have bbpress in a subdirectory of your blog. If it resides somewhere else on the server, you might have to also take a look at:

    http://bbpress.org/documentation/integration-with-wordpress/

    Start there and if you have more issues, please post more details on what you have and have not tried because there are many different things that could have went wrong for you.

    Success. I redid everything, dropped the db’s bb_ tables, started over, and it worked.

    This time I put the forum folder inside the WP folder. (I tried to log in with another browser, so make sure it wasn’t just my WP “admin” cookie getting me in, and the other browser worked.)

    That by itself shouldn’t necessarily have provided a magic fix, only share cookies, right?

    So what was it? I don’t know for sure… maybe the my-plugins folder didn’t have the correct permissions, or the bbPress plugin inside it, and re-doing everything helped.

    I wish I could be of more help here to those who can’t get it working. Maybe just being a real example of a person who had a no-login issue and resolved it is enough motivation. My advice: start over.

    Thanks to Trent for your assistance offer!

    Matt I am glad you got this going. Installing bbPress inside of WordPress makes the cookie sharing easier, but the link I provided above for integration with WordPress out of the bbPress documentation. It has great information on cookie domains and WP sharing.
