    You folks are a hoot….

    I’m a creative designer/web-monkey/illustrator/writer/under-paid literary assasin who has two kids and an ex-wife – and who loves to play around with WordPress and bbPress.

    so there!

    :p

    “Try

    require_once(dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . ‘/wp-config.php’);

    in bbPress’ config.php.”

    So this as you are installing bbPress? or ?

    Ok. It looks great!

    So…after having gone through this a dozen or so tries and then finding (per your excellent direction) that it’s mostly about domain structure in the config file – (and it looks like I’m not the only one) –

    a) how can I assist in making this not happen to someone else?

    b) when might there be official documentation for this type of install? (aside from the well written but short of the details I needed) article on BlogHelper ?

    thanks again – let me know where I need to report to help anyone else…..

    here is the whole config file (partially edited to protect passwords etc)

    <?php

    // ** MySQL settings ** //

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

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

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘muSOLpass’); // …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://acd.us/cms/bbpress&#8217;; // Example: ‘http://bbpress.example.com&#8217;

    // 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 = ‘Member Forum’;

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

    $bb->admin_email = ‘webmaster@acd.us’;

    // 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 = ‘-5’;

    // 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 = ‘my key #’;

    // 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 = ‘wp_’; // ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix.

    $bb->wp_home = ‘acd.us/cms’; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘acd.us/cms’; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash

    // Use the following line *only* if you will be loading WordPress everytime you load bbPress.

    //define(‘WP_BB’, true);

    /* Stop editing */

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

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

    “Are you integrating this with WP, or is it a standalone install?”

    I’m integrating bbpress into a wordpress installation…

    “Please tell me the following settings:

    $bb->domain

    $bb->path

    $bb->wp_prefix

    $bb->wp_home

    $bb->wp_siteurl

    (sorry) where would I find this information in bbpress?

    @devils_advocate

    Sure.

    I guess I’m confused what the plug ins are supposed to do and how they act within wordpress and bbpress.

    I opened up and looked at both plug-ins (changed the “.php” to “.html”) to see.

    And I realized that what I’m seeing in the installation pages in bbpress IS the plugin content of “display-name.php” preceding the regular Installation content.

    And in WordPress – when I “activate” the “bbpress-integration.php” plug-in I can no longer browse any part of my WordPress blog – the only page I get – regardless of where I try to go in the wordpress blog shows me the contents of the “bbpress-integration.php” plugin. I’m looking at a Trac page.

    With the wiki link, etc…all links not working because they are using my domain as root of the url.

    so – I’ve been trying to make this installation work without the plug-ins…and I get stuck at the first bbPress screen [login in the header all correct; my first post -1hour<–saw the post on this> etc] and am not able do anything from there.

    so far I’ve inched through a little progress every 2nd or third installation try…but right now I’m stuck

    I’ll try your first suggestion – I figured the other one “true” NOT! out on my own….

    thanks!

    also happening is: when I click on the link “Your First Post” (or somesuch) I get this error…

    “Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://mydomain.com/cms/bbpress/topic.php?id=1”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.”

    anyone know why this is happening?

    got past the styleshhet issue – and all – got bbpress installed.

    when I click on the link for the first post, I get this error…

    “Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://mydomain.com/cms/bbpress/topic.php?id=1”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.”

    anyone have any clues to help?

    @devils_advocate

    HOW do you make the plugins work?

    the “display-name.php” file adds a header of broken links and mod info (which I don’t understand) to the beginning of every install page but otherwise appears to not do anything.

    and the “bbpress-integration.php” plug-in for WordPress (I’m using 2) adds the same “Trac” information at the top of every loaded WP page…(!!!)

    very frustrating… =(

    help?

    I have the problem described by DawudM (above) – so to answer mdawaffe’s question:

    “After you try to login, does it still display the login form or does it instead show you the profile, admin, and logout links?”

    it show’s the first page of bbPress with the login info correct in the header (two fields with entered text); the correct account in the body with “first post!” etc but unable to add, delete, initiate etc – anything.

    just stuck.

    then after hitting a few of the page links (those that don’t allow you to do anything) then bbPress fails to recognize me as admin – or a user in its dbase.

    ideas?

    thanks in advance

    Ok. found a css sheet, a new header and image files from Fernando_Graphicos <http://fernando.dubtribe.com&gt; and got the forum up and running but it won’t let me add a forum, doesn’t recognize me as admin [after initial screen] etc…

    ??

    help?

    @devils_advocate

    Ok….did that – got the install up – but am STILL not getting the css (or stylesheet) to load.

    Am seeing non-styled HTML – and most important – when I click a link to go to the first post, or login, I’m taken to the front page of the WordPress blog (posts and all)…

    no sign of bbPress…..

    what’s going on do you think?

    @devils_advocate

    so you all suggest I change

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

    require_once(ABSPATH.’wp-settings.php’);

    ?>

    to read

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

    require_once(‘path/to/bbpress/config.php’);

    ?>

    or to read

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

    require_once(ABSPATH.’path/to/bbpress/config.php’);

    ?>

    ??

    ok – I found the ultimate guide and it got me 95% through…

    I’m still having a problem (that is likely in my WordPress set up) and a problem seeing the (default stylesheet)….

    ideas?

    @devils_advocate

    “require_once(‘path/to/bbpress/config.php’);”

    where would this be added?
