  • I want to say thanks for all the help.


    Right you are. I’ve deleted it. I see my askimet key is still available in this thread. Who should I contact?


    No that’s exactly the structure I have in place.

    Some success. I found where things were getting stopped up. In the config section looking for “what are you going to call me” (By now I had a few choice words.) I included an apostrophe. When I removed it, the installation went smoothly and I can get into the admin side of things.

    Can I now, after the fact integrate with wordpress by making the changes in the config file? Or is it plugin time. bbpress is inside the folder containing the wp files.


    I see I left my Askimet key in there. Is that a security problem to have it posted. If so, how do I edit the post?


    Meant, drop and I’ve started over. WordPress went fine. bbpress went into a folder called forum and got this error:

    Parse error: parse error in /home/cust2/user1080446/html/puppyplaydate/Forums/config.php on line 16

    Fatal error: Class bb_walker_forumadminlistitems: Cannot inherit from undefined class bb_walker in /home/cust2/user1080446/html/puppyplaydate/Forums/bb-admin/admin-functions.php on line 582

    Here is the config file:


    // ** MySQL settings ** //

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

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

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘*******’); // …and password

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘********’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change these last few

    define(‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’); // If you are *upgrading*, and your old config.php does

    define(‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ”); // not have these two contstants in them,

    DO NOT define them

    // If you are installing for the first time, leave them here

    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple

    forums in a single database.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘playforum_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    // The full URL of your bbPress install

    $bb->uri =;;

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘John Wades Puppy Play Date Site’;

    // This must be set before you run the

    install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based 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 = -4;

    // Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file

    for the

    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.

    // For example, install to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’

    // to enable German

    language support.

    define(‘BBLANG’, ”);

    // 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


    $bb->akismet_key = ‘xxxxxxxxx’; // Example: ‘0123456789ab’

    // The rest is

    only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave it as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘ppd_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example:


    $bb->wp_home = ‘;; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // Example: ‘;

    $bb->wp_siteurl =;; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // Example: ‘;

    /* Stop editing */

    if (

    !defined(‘BBPATH’) )

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

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


    Do you think I should dump the data base tables first?


    I was just reading the cookie reference as to the forum being placed inside the wp folder. I don’t know how I missed that in the installation instructions. I know I was supposed to provide a path.

    All in all, a strong arguement for starting from scratch and inserting the bbpress folder into the wp folder. Will update shortly.


    No error message. Here’s the url:


    SB, that should have read that log on and admin access are where things are now stalled.


    I tried creating a new user and logging in but was unsuccessful. Can’t try the forum as far as posting as I can’t log in. Sambauers – I did change the prefix and that helped get things on track, just the log on and getting to the admin section.

    I wonder if I should be deleting everything again, wordpress as well, go to mysql and dump the tables and start from scratch (again.)

    Your thoughts? Not looking forward to it but will if you think a clean start would eliminate some possibilities.


    I checked and $bb->mod_rewrite = false; (although I thought I had changed it to slugs – another incarnation I guess.)

    The table prefixes were the same and I fixed that and did a reinstall and it came out clean without the prior error messages.

    However I still can’t find my way to the admin page. I am redirected instead to the forum main page. I can’t seem to login either. (I tried an experimental post)
