In reply to: MU or WP for BB Integration
@mwaterous: thanks for the explanation. My basic need for integration is to provide users a single logon, plus a consistent appearance between the blog and the forum.
Does BB need to share the mu database for mu accounts to be recognized by BB? (I tried without a shared database and bb didn’t recognize a mu user.)
Update: I was able to integrate bbpress 1.0 alpha 4 with wpmu 6.5 and buddypress beta.
I created a new directory and copied the files from bbpress-latest.zip to it. I was able to install bbpress 1.0-alpha 4.
However, there was no screen about creating a user or your first forum or any integration.
The nightly build/bbpress-latest.zip has the MBCS warning screens after step 1 of the installation.
When will the fix migrate to either the public “stable” or public “alpha” version, rather than remain closed to developers? I downloaded the “alpha” and the fatal error remains:
“Fatal error: Call to undefined function: backpress_get_option() in /bb-includes/backpress/functions.core.php on line 412.”
I commented-out the error_reporting line in the “stable” 0.9 download and still get this installation error:
Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /xxx/xxx/xxx/xxx/forum/bb-includes/wp-functions.php on line 113
Can someone put together a working version of bbpress for download?
Ok. I downloaded the 1.0 alpha-5. I added the include to functions.core.php. I commented out the error message statement in bb-settings.php. I get through the first step.
But at Step 2, I get this screen:
bbpress is already installed, but appears to require an upgrade.
Perhaps you meant to run the upgrade script instead?
How do I avoid this error screen?
Almost made it all the way through.
I added the include line to the alpha 5 download and got to step 2 before this error:
Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /home3/wifirepo/public_html/wpmatrix/forum/bb-includes/backpress/functions.core.php on line 389
This is the same warning I get when trying to install 0.9.04.
sbouazza: I added the include before the <?php. I’ll try as you’ve outlined.
sbouazza: I tried you ‘include’ trick and it only created more warnings. I guess bbpress is pretty much off-limits until someone comes up with a downloadable that can be successfully installed.
sbouazza: yes, the bbpress 1.0 alpha 5 download link when installed, gives the backpress_get_option error. What is the solution, since there appears to be one?
macron: My host (bluehost) is using php 5.2.8.
Arg! I cannot install bbpress no matter what download link I use. The link for the stable version 0.9.0.4 gives me this error when trying to install:
Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /home3/wifirepo/public_html/wpmatrix/forum/bb-includes/wp-functions.php on line 113
The download link for the unstable 1.0.5 alpha give me a fatal error that is said to be fixed in the “trunk” version, but there is no download link (only reference to an svp – no zip file.
I want to install a working version of bbpress but all attempts have been thwarted.
