  • Yep, I have the same issue. Haven’t come across the answer yet, but waiting (im)patiently so I can get my bb up and running… As near as I can tell it’s a cookie issue, but I don’t know how to fix it…

    Anybody wanna make $20 to get my installs working?

    Could it still be related to the fact that I can’t seem to get the bb-plugin (display_name) working? And… If so, how do I do that?

    It’s in the my-plugins directory, but isn’t visible in the plugin screen on bb

    Wish it were that simple, but no, no role plugins… I was playing with one a few weeks back but it didn’t do what I wanted and was never activated.

    I can’t think of anything that would mess with usernames… All my plugins are menu, useronline gadget, forms, feedburner, etc… Nothing that would make that kind of impact…

    Good idear, but back to the drawing board…

    Thanks for your help…

    OK… Through some searching through the forums… I found this:

    Usernames with spaces do not work

    And it seems to work. Does not allow for special characters, for example, Dr. Nobody (the period doesn’t go through)…

    One step closer, now… Thanks for all the help.

    That was a good lead, but I downloaded the plugin, and although it shows up (unlike the display-name plugin) activating it has no impact on old registrations.

    I also tried to register a new account “Test User” — the confirmation screen says, “Your registration as TestUser was successful.” No space.

    Although in a wacky twist of fate, the registration did also carry through to WP. And assigned the correct role once the user logged in, albeit with a changed username as indicated above.

    OK, So the original issues that I was able to resolve were:

    Every action had a “no input file specified” error

    Apparently this is a GoDaddy hosting issue with permalinks. I set that to false in the config.php and the issue was corrected.

    No access to dashboard with admin

    I removed the installation completely, including all references in the database and reinstalled AFTER adding and activating the wp-plugin. In the original installation I added the plugins after setting up bb installation so I had to set up my own admin information. On the re-installation the admin account was automatically created with the information from the wp database.

    OK… Resolved… Sorta.

    OK… Here’s the latest. You should know, I’m one step above clueless and very dangerous because of it…

    went to myadmin to play with the database. I searched for capabilities and it returned all my user listings… Since I was nervous about deleting anything, I created a second account and gave it admin access.

    I deleted the entry for the capabilities admin… and it deleted my admin access to wp. It changed that username (admin) to ‘no role on this system’ or something similar. (so I logged in with the other admin account and went back to give the original access again).

    So the net result of that is that I still can’t get at a dashboard with either admin accounts in bb.

    The other file issue was corrected when I changed prettylinks to false. Now I can read posts, edit profile etc. although as mentioned above, still no dashboard access.

    Oh, yeah… Still confused about what I need to edit in the wp plugin to make it work correctly… Unless it IS working correctly since all my wp users could in theory log in and use the bb.

    One other new thing that I didn’t realize was happening… WP usernames with spaces (test user) are not able to log into bb, however WP names without spaces (testuser) are able to log in without difficulties.

    Thanks for the help… Perhaps someone can help me figure out where I went wrong?

    OK… Thanks for the start here…

    Yes, I do host with godaddy… There has to be a better resolution than to switch hosts, though…

    Will see what I can come up with… If anyone else has ideas let me know…
