    WP 2.7.1 and bbPress 0.9.0.4 can’t be integrated natively because of the way they handle cookies. Either you downgrade the method used by WP or upgrade the method used by bbPress. Both the method can be done via plugins (You only need to use one of them).

    For WP plugin:

    For bbPress plugin:

    I have used the bbPress plugin to get them in sync.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Hey Kevin!

    Thanks I got it working by using CK’s Fix Admin Access plugin and by specifying these two lines in bb-config.php :

    $bb->custom_user_table = ‘wp_users’;

    $bb->custom_user_meta_table = ‘wp_usermeta’;

    Things are working fine till now. I was lost at your instructions so I myself tried hit and trial method and finally got everything setup. Thanks for your help.

    The only thing that I am left in my project is to create custom member area for students & faculty members which require me to set and recognize the cookie exactly what is being used by WP & bbPress at the time. Can you help in this regard?

    A user registered with WP doesn’t get registered in bbPress. Is it like to be that only? I don’t need open registrations throughout the year but just fixed accounts for students. So I just want to allow the accounts to be integrated in some manner like WP & bbP uses the same table or the both wp_users & bb_users are in sync. How do I go about it?

    Finally got it working using _ck_’s plugin. Now I want the same login sync with my custom php pages. Any pointers regarding what I should be doing? I think I will need the code used in _ck_’s plugin and the bbPress core file. Am I right?

    Hello Kevin!

    Thanks for your reply! :D

    I did a clean install of WP 2.7 and then I activated Ann’s plugin.

    Then I added the code those three lines in wp-config.php and lost access to dashboard.

    Redirect Loop

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

    * Have you disabled or blocked cookies required by this site?

    * NOTE: If accepting the site’s cookies does not resolve the problem, it is likely a server configuration issue and not your computer.

    I am currently testing on localhost (XAMPP). Any idea what is causing this loop? May be I need to edit those lines but I dont know how to.

    I had to delete the plugin from the plugin directory to access dashboard again.

    I would not think of going beyond WP 2.7 unless I am unable to achieve the sync. And regarding the Open ID integration, I would like to keep myself away from it as I need to allow only registered users to login.

    @Txanny

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I will start with the stable release only.

    @ _ck_

    I am also going to use bbPress alpha for a live site. I don’t want to use any plugins. Just what bbPress is offering at the moment is required (more functionality is not a pain though). Should I go for it as I have tested with WP 2.7 for login syncs (partly – the way i want with my custom user panels). Would like to know your opinion. Thanks!

    @ _ck_

    I was able to have premalinks like the way I want by just uncommenting a line in some configuration file. I may be mis interpreting you but what do you intend to tell here?

    I wasn’t able to get WP 2.7 + bbPress 0.9 in sync but when I tried WP 2.7 with bbPress alpha 6, I am able to get a sync but not fully.

    Dividing this into 4 cases :

    CASE I

    Logged in from : WP

    Reflected in other : Yes

    Logged Out from : WP

    Reflected in other : Yes

    Complaints : None so far

    CASE II

    Logged in from : bbP

    Reflected in other : Yes

    Logged Out from : bbP

    Reflected in other : Yes

    Complaints : None so far

    CASE III

    Logged in from : WP

    Reflected in other : Yes

    Logged Out from : bbP

    Reflected in other : No

    Complaints : Unable to logout. Doesn’t reflect anywhere.

    CASE IV

    Logged in from : bbP

    Reflected in other : Yes

    Logged Out from : WP

    Reflected in other : No

    Complaints : Unable to logout. Doesn’t reflect anywhere.

    I guess the only problem is that logging out from other than where you logged in doesn’t logged you out.

    Hi Warren

    I am working for WP + bbPress for my college website and I will create accounts in one go. There won’t be open registrations. I just need to have the functionality of using same login credentials at both place and logged in at both WP & bbPress at the same time. Students will need to login before they can comment on posts on WP. Can I achieve this with WP 2.7 and bbPress 0.9?

    Hey!

    I just need a CMS and forum functionality with possible solution for added accounts where they can have access to certain content like download links and I want the login credentials to be same throughout the site. This way I will make everybody a account and they will then need to login into the account even for posting comments.

    Either I use some plugin (if it exists) or write my own code that can use the same username and password from the WP or bbPress database. I think that is pretty much feasible but I am concern about the security as I am not an advanced user.

    Please guide in some direction.
