  • I just tried installing on a different host, gator as opposed to dreamhost but it still doesn’t work.

    I find that when you logout of one it does automatically log you out of the other. Also when you log in into one when already logged into the other it logs you out of the other, so effectively you can only be logged into one at a time.

    When looking at the cookies that are set I see that WP sets 2:



    When logging into BBP it only sets 1:


    I notice in WP the values for wordpress_ and wordpress_logged_in_ don’t match, are they supposed to be different?

    If already logged in with WP and then logging in with BBP I notice that the value of wordpress_logged_in_ changes. I’m sure that’s why if you go back to WP then you find yourself logged out.

    As far as I can tell the value set for wordpress_logged_in_ by WP is not recognized by BBP so you are not automatically logged in to it. I wonder why that is if I’ve followed all the cookie integration steps?

    My cookie keys match between the 2 configs. I didn’t have the COOKIEPATH definition in bbpress, only in wp, so I put that in but still no luck.

    I have wp installed in a sub-directory so my statement is: define(‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/blogs/’);

    I just tried another test install without sub-directory and that won’t work either!

    I have a wp/bbp integration where I recently upgraded both from previous versions to wp 2.9.2 and bbp 1.0.2. I was able to get them to share accounts so you can login to both with the same passwords but I can’t get the cookie integration working at all. Logging into one doesn’t automatically log you into the other.

    I decided to do a fresh install of the latest versions of both to see if that would work but I’m having the exact same issue. I tried cutting the salts down to 32 characters as suggested above but still no luck.

    I installed the bbpress integration plugin in wp but that’s not helping either.

    I’m wondering if there is some incompatibility between wp 2.9.2 and bbp 1.0.2?

    This is on a dreamhost server, and it all worked well before I tried to upgrade.

    I realized what I did wrong, I didn’t follow all the steps quite sequentially, I had to set the keys manually in bb-config.php, and copied the define statements directly out of wp-config.php without realizing the constant names were supposed to start with BB_

    Anyway this was an upgrade of both WP and bbPress, as opposed to brand new installs, and they seem to be working pretty well so far…

    I have integration working in that I can also log into both with the same user name and password. No problem with posting to the forum.

    I really need to be able to be automatically logged into bbpress when I’m logged into WordPress, but this doesn’t work at all. I followed all the steps also, but it’s still not working. Any ideas?

    Another weird thing was that every time I tried to save new salts in the bbpress wordpress integration it would log me out of bbpress and not save. I added the info manually to the bb_topicmeta table and now I can change and save these values any time from the options interface

    yeah disabling it makes the feeds work fine, should of thought to try that myself, I’m wondering if there is any possible way to have feeds and keep the forums private at the same time, (have your cake and eat it too?)

    In reply to: Using RSS Feeds

    yes there are definitely posts in the forums, and when I subscribe to the feeds with Firefox I do get a list of permalinks to the posts.

    also I am using the private forums plugin, I don’t see anything about it effecting RSS in the docs though it does mention that in the latest version RSS is ‘fixed’

    this is the main forum feed: http://gradactingalumni.org/blogs/forums/rss.php

    In reply to: Using RSS Feeds

    sorry, “flimsy” is nice! Yes this is about RSS feeds, mines are comin’ up blank just like some of the previous posters

    I added those lines to my .htaccess but the feeds are still blank

    In reply to: Using RSS Feeds

    so what changes do I need to make to /bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php to make it work? where is this F-in’ Manual I need to read? I have bbpress integrated with wordpress so maybe that’s part of the problem

    or are you saying I need to copy the rules out of /bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php into my wordpress .htaccess file to make it work?
