  • Vevendi, I’ve got the same problem.

    I don’t have a solution yet. I can get the two sites to appear to integrate (I work through the integration settings and everything proceeds as it is supposed to), but they don’t actually work.

    What happens for me is the user database is not synced, but the cookies are at least partially synced, because if I log in to WP then BB doesn’t allow me to click on log-in, and if I log-out of one it logs me out of both.

    However, if being logged into BB doesn’t actually give me access to WP-admin, and likewise, being logged into WP causes me not to be able to admin or post on BB – but I can’t click on log-in or register either.

    I think Kevin is right – this is going to take a while to sort out. Compatibility between bbPress and WPMU was never easy as pie, and there’s no reason to expect it will suddenly be night-and-day easier with WP3.0.


    You know what might be worth checking out? Vanilla 2 (forum software) is pretty solid, and it’s built on “Garden” which is exactly like the BackPress concept you were talking about.

    I’ve been trying to get bbPress to take care of my forum needs for a while, because I’m a heavy WordPress user and I’d like the two to integrate.

    However, given the current level of frustration I’ve had with getting the integration to actually work, and the frustrating limitations of bbPress which don’t appear to be going away any time soon, I’m becoming more interested in seeing a fork of WordPress to run on top of Garden and integrate with Vanilla.
