  • Hello,

    I use RPX, the easiest way is to redirect (a http refer in first line in register.php) to WP login.

    By the way RPX is a very cool and polished solution for all weblogs that doesn’t want to manage user base.

    It supports OpenID and the major so called “social” systems



    What I lover in this design (apart of its obvious elenage) is the “home” link.

    For integrated WP/PP it would be cool if kakumei had the option of a home link -> to the WP install

    I know it’s easy to add by hand, but I dont like tweaking themes (and files) because this makes updates always touchy.


    God bless Ipstenu !!

    Thanks to your bit of code I ended in integrating wp and bbpress something I failed from day 1..

    Thanks a lot !!!



    I upgraded to alpha5 (through svn) and no problem (except the login problem I have since a few releases : I can be logged in WP OR in BBpress but not in both at the same time, if I log in in one I’m logged out on the other..)


    It’s a classic :)

    Have a look here :

    BBPress has a very nice frontend, a fantastic engine, but no real admin (alpha level so work in progress..), hopefully, Santa got us PhPMyAdmin….



    I’m sorry to screw the happy mood but my experience is not good at all.

    I’m a very happy WP (nearly from the very first 0.x release) and bbpress user.

    I use the last versions of both WP and bbpress (I use svn for this)

    Until now (WP-RCx) and bbpress 1.0 alpha <4 things were far from perfect.

    When I was loged both on the weblog and the forum I couldn’t access anymore bbpress admin part.

    But from a user perspective it worked (they were logged in the blog and in the forum)

    Since bbpress 1.0 alpha 4 nothing works any more. When I log to one… I’m logged out of the other (as an admin) and some of my users can’t any more access their loging in the forum (logging in WP is no problem).

    I suspect it could be solved by deleting cookies but I can’t ask my user to do this (most of them would even don’t know what I’m talking about).

    I ended deactivating WP integration plug in and commenting COOKIEPATH in wp config, hopping this integration problem will be solved one for once in 1.0 final.


    thanks !!!


    I’ll try this way for next time, in the meantime I ended using PhpMyAdmin to delete post and tipic with status=1

    I hope this fucntionality will make its way in the core because it can become a real problem.

    I had a problematic user, I first deleted all his messages (deleted, but not really deleted as BBPress don’t really delete) then I deleted his account.

    A few hours later he recreated his accoun and suddently all supposedly deleted messages appeared with “anonymous” has author…. very strange.

    Using phpMyAdmin the problem is gone :)

    How to use your script ?

    Thanks again


    Sorry to insist, is there a solution even using phpMyAdmin by tweeking directly the database ???

    It becomes rather urgent….

    People who insist on perfect validation need to find more productive things to do with their time, there’s alot of code out there that needs to be written! ;-)

    Good point :)


    I use for a pretty long time rel=”external” more compliant and this works well.

    The following bit of code is from

    function externalLinks() {
    if (!document.getElementsByTagName) return;
    var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
    for (var i=0; i<anchors.length; i++) {
    var anchor = anchors;
    if (anchor.getAttribute("href") &&
    anchor.getAttribute("rel") == "external") = "_blank";
    window.onload = externalLinks;

    If JS is not activated ? well no external link but the site is prefectly working


    Its a great theme.

    One problem, when the forum uses categories, these categories are displayed as forums with 0 (zero) messages

    I use 1.0alpha2


    Exact, 0.12 works well.


    I switched from Simple:Press to BBpress.

    For a WP based site, Simple:Press is far more sophisticated and more integrated that current BBpress.

    The reason that made me switched is that Simple:Press is a one man project. The day Andy decides to get a life Simple:Press will be dumped (like was some of his previeous excellent plugins).

    On the other hand BBpress seems to get a new second life and is a promising project. I would ad that in its current stage it is very usable and works pretty well.



    I had backpress error when using php4, which version of php does your host use ?

    In reply to: Server Overload


    In latest bb-config.php there is no /* Stop editing */

    Do I put $bb->load_options = true; at the end of the file ?


    I would add to the list :

    Admin Can Post Anything 0.5

    Ajaxed Quote (very last 1.0 release)

    bbPress Attachments 0.1.11

    bbPress Sitemap Generator 0.61

    Google Analitycs 0.1


    Works for me too

    In reply to: Multiple-level forums


    Exact, you just need to check the is category when creating (or modifying) the forum.

    You also have to check the theme. Kakumei is ok, but some others display 0 (zero) in front of the father forum, this is disturbing for users who fail to understand that the top forum is only a container and not a real forum. Some doesn’t display forum as a hierarchy (with a father / container forum and sub forums).


    Until now works pretty well with 1.0 alpha


    Thanks a lot _ck_ !

    For the time to display I suppose this comes from a problem between my hosting company (in Europe) and the US because either from home or from my office, display of page is quite instantaneous

    Thanks again !

    Hello Chris

    yes I noticed, but I use the free version revolution blog that is slightly different (I don’t like the classical forum look of the revolution BBpress theme, I love Kakumei discussion look) and I try to keep Kakumei look with just my blog specific header and footer

    Thanks for this clarification.. it’s exactly the style of things that are not clearly announced by BBpress.

    This forum script is released as a simple, elegant and quick forum not as a set of library for developpers… and viewed this way it’s highly different from WP that is a weblog software for the rest of us, not at all a tool for developers.

    Hopefully, thanks to “magic _ck_” and the marvelous plug in he provide to the BBPress comunity, the set of library starts slowly to get a new face, the one of a classical good forum software…

    Notice : there is no pun intended in what follow, no troll intended, no critic, no aggressive talk and so on.

    Pat1953 question is an interesting one, a question that I asked to myself sometimes.

    The « problem » with BBpress is that for an average user (perhaps it’s different for developers) there is no clear direction about where the software is going.

    I was very early WP user (and I’m still a very happy WP user) so when BBPress appears a lot of years (in internet time) ago, i tried it.

    Then I used several other package more polished, more feature packed and so on.

    I came back to BBPress learning that Automattic was founded hopping this could mean a strong development for the forum software and hopefully a real integration with WP.

    What is strange with BBPress is that despite it’s a rather old forum software, it is still (from a user perspective) far behind scripts that are developped by a single guy (for example in the WP world, Simple :Press is far more sophisticated and integrated) and it has a very strange way of describing it self.

    For example reading The Philisophy it’s written “Put the user first”… despite the fact BBpress is now probably the only forum script without any editor (even a BB code functionality requires a third part plug in), the only one which end users are supposed to know a little bit of HTML.

    The integration with WP is also a very strange aspect. By integration I’m not talking about sharing users base and connection, but real semantic integration.

    WP lacks a forum part. I maintain a personal website since now close to 10 years and it’s clear for me now (it was not clear at first) that comments, and forum discussions are not the same things, and that they address different needs.

    A comment will be buried in the weblog archives after a few days so finding it will be near impossible for a classic visitor.

    On the other hand, forum post are better ordered, easier and more natural to find out and son on.

    So if I write a blog post about my holidays and two readers answer “cool, it seem it was great”.. comments are exactly what I need.

    If I write a blog post about a very interesting thing that will be still of a great interest two years later (even two months later) its better to redirect people to a forum topic, because the discussion will be interesting and deserve to be kept and easy to find out.

    So after many years of WP use, I think BBpress is a required integrated part of WP.

    But nothing is very clear in BBpress documentation about where the project is heading.



    I didn’t search enough.

    In case it could help, this plugin :

    Works like a charm
