    Try “admin”.

    Fixed it by reinstalling everything, including the db.

    That worked, thanks Trent.

    I agree that how they work is more important. But having used phpBB, where they call plugins “mods” — easily confused with “moderator” — now is the time to simplify. That’s just an example of how terms can be misunderstood.

    Newbies will be using this software every day for 1, 5, even 12 years. Every 10th or 100th newbie will waste a 1/2 hour because of the theme/template overlap disconnect, and you’ll come up with a ton of unnecessary hair-pulling-outing.

    I guess my point is with all the elegance and simplicity inherent in bbPress, why leave this confusion?

    Null, I couldn’t get this to work. I experienced the same issues as suleiman. I looked at your SQL, and found some errors involving your column names: you’re using mySQL keywords as column names, like “set”.

    I tried

    CREATE TABLE bb_menu(

    sett varchar( 50 ) NOT NULL default ”,

    item varchar( 50 ) NOT NULL default ”,

    page varchar( 50 ) NOT NULL default ”,

    location varchar( 50 ) NOT NULL default ”,

    orderr int( 9 ) NOT NULL default ‘0’,

    PRIMARY KEY ( sett, item )

    but still got an error:

    MySQL said: Documentation

    #1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ” at line 7

    Notice I changed “set” to “sett” and “order” to “orderr”. I think you’re on the right track tho. Let me know if I can help further. I’ll check this thread periodically because I’d like to see this plugin work.

    Very nice. Love to d/l it if you make it available…

    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!

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

    Maybe I’ll try them anyway. TIA.

    Addendum:

    just tried another user “test” — same thing, can’t get in.
