Re: bbPress overwriting a DB value

To achieve integration between 0.9.05 & WordPress 2.7.1, I overwrite the bb_capabilities in wp_usermeta for my user by sql query as I don’t have phpmyadmin and I am using custom table prefixes.

I’m at a loss why you would have to do that anyway… I’ve never heard of anyone having to go in via SQL and making those changes except in the case of ‘reverse’ integration (where by you started with bbPress and are now adding on a WP site). In theory, if you’re starting with everything brand new, you just do WP first and then bb and it should work.

Looking at your doc, you also mention changing the wp_ prefix to rocking_ which is totally fine, but later on you have this:

Add these two lines in bb-config.php

$bb->custom_user_table = 'wp_users';
$bb->custom_user_meta_table = 'wp_usermeta';

Those too should be rocking_users and rocking_metadata
