Re: Cookies (staying logged in between wp and bb)
Well… apparently, the hangup is in using the “wizard” installation (which results in some silly “duplicate table” error regarding wp_users – users_nicename).
My fix was to perform a clean install, without checking the option for integration during the install ‘wizard.’ Once I was in with a standalone version, I went to the Forum admin page – wordpress integration settings. I input the WP URL twice, the secret from WP and the user table prefix. Added the two lines suggested for wp-config.php and bada-bing… that did it.
Hope this helps someone else out there.
Used WP 2.5 & 2.5.1 – bbPress 0.9.0.2
