    Hello again everyone,

    Thanks again for helping to get my forum up.

    My question now is, how can I add a new page to my wordpress site that doesn’t have my blog entries on it? You know, like it would still have the site logo at the top, and the sidebar on the right, but then the main part of the page would be blank. The idea is that I would then put my forum on that page, inside an inframe. But I just want to know how to add that blank page.

    Thanks very much.

    “what I thought was my database password was incorrect. The correct password will be the same as in wp-config.php”

    Wow, that worked!! I changed the password in config.php to the match the one in wp-config.php, and now my forum is up and running!

    Many thanks. :)

    Thanks again,

    I just overwrote /bb-includes/db-mysqli.php with /bb-includes/db.php and then tried it again it got this message

    Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: Access denied for user ‘jim1234’@’localhost’ (using password: NO) in /home/jim1234/public_html/forum/bb-includes/db.php on line 73

    Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: A link to the server could not be established in /home/jim1234/public_html/forum/bb-includes/db.php on line 73

    Cannot select DB.

    Do you know of another good forum software that is much easier to install? Thanks

    Thanks again chrishajer,

    Yeah I’m running windows so I have no idea what the equivalent would be.

    mdawaffe keeps talking about “line 80”, changing “line 80”. But I don’t know, line 80 of what? lol.

    Man I had no idea that installing bbpress was going to be so difficult, installing wordpress itself was not bad at all.

    Hello chrishajer, thanks for your reply.

    I’m having a heck of a time trying to make sense of what I should do now lol. This is VERY confusing to me. I looked for a “db-mysqli.php” file in the bbpress files that I uploaded and did not see anything similar to that. And I don’t see that line 80 “mysql_get_server_info”, which it says should be changed to “mysqli_get_server_info” anywhere in the config.php file. I’m real lost here lol, so if anyone can just point in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

    Hello Trent, thanks for your reply.

    Yeah, I’m not completely sure if the information that I put in that file is correct. Is there a specific place where I can find that MySQL information to plug in there? Thanks again.
