  • never mind – got it.

    the old write out the problem to solve it trick!

    how do I get the search button to line up with the search box and still have a working search function?

    I get these errors:

    bbPress database error: [Table ‘mpmorg2_bbpress.bb_online’ doesn’t exist]

    SELECT * FROM bb_online WHERE user_id = 1 LIMIT 1

    bbPress database error: [Table ‘mpmorg2_bbpress.bb_online’ doesn’t exist]

    INSERT INTO bb_online (user_id, activity) VALUES (‘1’, ‘2007-03-24 06:06:37’)

    read me says:

    “You’ll maybe get an error if you browse your forum the first time after you’ve installed the plugin. This is normal.

    If you keep getting errors, try setting $mysql41 to false maybe it works then, otherwise don’t hestitate to contact me.”

    How do I set this to false?

    forum is here:

    EDIT: It’s okay, it just took some time for the errors to disappear.

    In reply to: What’s integration?

    Is shared logins the only benefit?

    Can bbpress use any of the wordpress plugins?

    What are some of the practical benefits of integrating a blog with a forum?

    Can you make the comments from wordpress go directly to the forum? Not just appear in the forum but ONLY appear in the forum?

    My wordpress blog is, a community charity illustration blog but I’d like the community aspect of the commenting system to be part of our forums with all our other forum topics/projects at

    Ideally I would like the root of our site ( to use something relatively simple like Nulls BBportal to pull and display open forum topics from a couple of specific categories (in our forums case our ‘newsfront’ category and our company specific category) and then have our wordpress blog also linked into the forums from a subdomain.

    Mirce, that just puts the sidebar out in firefox…it’s a big difference/space between the 2 browsers.

    EDIT: adding display: inline seems to have done the job.

    I have an old wordpress blog I would like to export into bbpress – is this possible?

    I would settle for posts and comments but users would be good too.

    never mind, nutted it out.

    I installed the patch (had it installed for me)

    Just to make sure:

    1.The admin dashboard does not resemble the old one?

    2. I can make and assign categories alright but I can’t see the category listing on the front page of the forum (like macwises site: dividing the forums into groups.

    Do you have to install the patch on a brand new installation?

    so how come search isn’t enabled when you first install bb? It’s obviously there – but you have to add it in? What about some css for the style sheet?

    Yeah, definately Trent.

    The site I’m working on has 3 sections.

    1. Forums for our specific projects (charity store products, our art projects, forum for sponsors promotion)

    2. Not For Profit Sector Resources (including a forum for fundraising initiatives for a local hospital)

    3. Arts Resources (including forums for different fields of the arts which includes community driven art projects)

    plus your normal general, private and admin forums.

    The subcategories will enable the page to guide readers to where they should be.

    how do I get command line access?

    By locally, do you mean do it manually?

    Well, that may be awhile – so this patch will do for now – if I get it installed!


    Can someone post a how-to link on installing patches?

    This is the first time I’ve tried to patch something and I’m at a bit of a loss.

    I’m using a linux server and I uploaded the .patch file to the directory ‘bb/’ then did a site command (my ftp program is called mifiles) and pasted ‘patch -p0 <categories-build719.patch’ but I just get a 550 unknown command error.

    I have no idea (obviously).

    So subforums are to become part of a standard install of bbpress? Is this going to happen soon(ish) or am I better off waiting entirely or installing the patch? I really want to use bbpress but I need the subforums.


    how did you create your extra forums/subforums?

    I’ve done some looking around and found SamBaeurs patch – is this the best way to do this?


    so there is no image uploading inherent in bbpress? But there are image plugins?

    What can be shared between WP and BB? logins? Can wordpress show latest BB posts?

    Firstly, that’s a fantastic looking site!
