Nevermind, I took out the WordPress integration stuff and the admin dashboard came back.
The URL to the forum is: http://www.johnmayerfans.com/boards
The forum itself seems to be working the way it should. When I first created the config file I left the whole “integrating with wordpress” section blank. I didn’t fill it out. Then I filled it in once I found that the pretty slug permalinks weren’t working right. Once I did that the forums worked fine but then I couldn’t get into the main Admin dashboard.
Here’s my config file as it is now:
// ** 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 = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!
// The full URL of your bbPress install
$bb->uri = ‘http://www.johnmayerfans.com/boards/’;
// What are you going to call me?
$bb->name = ‘JohnMayerFans.com Message Boards’;
// This must be set before you run the install script.
$bb->admin_email = ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’;
// Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based pretty permalinks.
$bb->mod_rewrite = ‘slugs’;
// 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 = -8;
// Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’
// to enable German language support.
// 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 = ‘***************’; // 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 = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;
