  • I am using the trunk version, which at last update was Alpha 6. Haven’t messed with it in the last day or so but hopefully will get it working this weekend.

    Believe me, the keys I posted in the pastebins are NOT the keys I am using – I changed them after I posted the code. The integration did not work either when I used the integration speedup or not, in fact, it never worked. The secret keys for AUTH_KEY in wp and BB_AUTH_KEY in bb are identical, but they still do not work. It’s just frustrating because if I use an older version of WP (2.6.5) and and older version of BB (, I can get it to work, but not with WP 2.7 and BB 1.0 – something is broken in the code, I am sure of it.

    Not quite what I want. I want to be able to SPECIFY, in the admin tool, what graphic, not icon, to display in place of the text name of the forum, not topic. I will have different people managing different forums and they won’t know how to edit PHP or CSS – they want a point and click interface. It doesn’t appear that bbPress will work at it’s current stage, but I might just hack it.

    As for the “detailed information” field – I have changed the theme so that there are three levels:

    ParentForum: Displayed on the home page 4 across the page with the title at the top – has no parent

    Group Forum: With the “Parent Forum” as the parent, which users never really see.

    Child Forum: With the “Group Forum” as the parent, landing page where users post topics and replies.

    Nobody is able to create topics or make replies in the Parent or Group forums. They are used to build a drill down effect similar to the system IBM used for their Innovation Jam forums. What I need the extra description field for is simple – When a person gets to the “Child Forum” or landing page, there is a short description displayed above the topics. I want to add a “more” link that will replace the short description with a more detailed descriptio using AJAX.

    I know, complicated, but it’s what the client wants. I am working on a plugin that will replace the Forum Manager and give me the tools I need to do this. I wish I could show you the site, but it’s for a private Intranet.

    I have done all of this. The AUTH keys are identical in both the WordPress and bbPress config files. The cookie name is, I think, correct. I have posted parts of my config files here:

    Thanks for any help. Like I said, the only thing that doesn’t work is the shared login part. I can not test these while at work, but any suggestions you can give will be tried when I get home. Thanks.

    Unfortunately the only way I have found to do this is to edit the “content.php” and “content-posts.php” files in the bb-admin folder and edit line 9 in each file as follows:

    content.php: Change ‘topic_status’ => 1 to ‘topic_status’ => ‘all’

    content-posts.php: Change ‘post_status’ => 1 to ‘post_status’ => ‘all’

    I hate to modify core code, but I don’t see any other way to change this as it is hard coded in the files. Perhaps an option could be added under “General Settings”, but this would need to be done in the core code. It wouldn’t be that hard to do, I would think.

    I am having (probably) the same problem as techlover. I can integrate the user database and user accounts work in both WordPress and bbPress. I can even allow people to register in either since they both use the same user database.

    However, I have to login / out of each one seperately. That’s almost what I want. I integrated with the same versions mentioned above and it went farily smooth. Now, I would just like the login cookies to log me in and out of both sites.

    In reply to: Adding Theme Pages

    So am I to assume there is no way to add pages to bbPress? Oly the default pages can be used? Darn, might have to look for something else. :(

    WordPress uses Magpie for doing RSS and by default will cache the feeds for 1 hour. To change this, you can add a line to your wp-config file like:

    define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_AGE’, TIME);

    Replace the word ‘TIME’ with the length of time in seconds to cache. You can also turn off the Magpie cache with:

    define(‘MAGPIE_CACHE_ON’, false);

    Hope that helps.
