    Don’t have access to the code right now so not sure where in bbPress you need to edit.

    It felt slow to me.. there shouldn’t be that 2-3 second pause on each page.

    If it has been over 48 hours I’d find another host.

    Maybe it’s worth posting a link to your install so we can give feedback on speed.

    It sounds to me like you have a poor host – who is it? Many cheaper ones have poor database performance.

    What are the advantages of doing it this way?

    In reply to: Few questions..

    Thanks for your help everyone, I think I’ll be giving bbPress a try.

    Not tried this but usually with functions you can put in an exclamation mark in to what you had for not logged in.

    <?php if ( !bb_is_user_logged_in() ) { ?>

    show to those not logged in

    <?php } ?>

    Sorry if that’s obvious and you’ve already tried it.

    Vanilla seemed great for a while, but I found integrating it very annoying. Writing your own extensions is extremely hard unless you’re doing something very basic. Having said this Vanilla is good if it can do everything you want straight away. Just make sure you’re capable of theming it properly as it’s annoying seeing yellow posts on every Vanilla install. But their community was very friendly, if a little nontechnical, but this was +6 months back.

    I had a look at the WP code but haven’t had a chance to look at bbPress’ yet. Would like to hear your solution. One thing I noticed was when you try entering www on here it filters them out.

    In reply to: .htaccess/Cookie woes!

    You’re correct I missed a word out – htaccess isn’t be needed.

    I’ve not got much experience with bbPress but recently integrated WP and Vanilla. To confirm, are you intending to have 1 user table shared between your blog and forum? (so users can move seamlessly between the two)

    In reply to: .htaccess/Cookie woes!

    You should need to use .htaccess. Best thing is to override the way cookies are created. For WP these are in wp-settings.php around line 185. To have a shared cookie for the whole site I changed the cookie scope replacing:

    codeif ( !defined(‘COOKIEPATH’) )

    define(‘COOKIEPATH’, preg_replace(‘|https?://[^/]+|i’, ”, get_option(‘home’) . ‘/’ ) );code


    codeif ( !defined(‘COOKIEPATH’) )

    define(‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/’ );code

    Setting the www bits etc can be done in a similar way. Assuming you’ve integrated your users, if you set the cookie path to ‘/’ with domain .babyquestions.101.com you should be fine.

    In reply to: Importing from vanilla

    The last phpBB to Vanilla converter doesn’t work perfectly with the latest Vanilla so needs some fiddling. Both Vanilla and bbPress could do with investing in a universal converter similar to what punBB has. It’s a lot of work but will be worthwhile.

    In reply to: New Posts

    Just wondering, is anyone is making progress on the new posts front?

    I think for many people it could be the #1 reason not to use bbPress, from both a user and developer perspective.

    In reply to: Importing from vanilla

    I’m currently looking at Vanilla and bbPress, may I ask what you didn’t like about Vanilla, in comparison to bbPress?
