Re: Plugins for WordPress integration
Hi Trent, thanks for the response
After installing WP (via fantastico) I uploaded the bbpress files to /forums/, set up database&user, ran the bbpress install script.
I then added the WP plugin as described above, activated it and configured it with bb_ (taken from my config.php).
I added a directory /forums/my-plugins/ and put the described bbpress plugin in there (although I probably didnt need to as it is a fresh install)
Below is my config.php that I edited as described (maybe I misunderstood somthing here?)
Thanks again for your help…
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘xxxxxx_xxxx’); // The name of the database
define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘xxxxxxx_xxxxx’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘xxxxx’); // …and password
define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.
$bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!
// If your bbPress URL is http://bbpress.example.com/forums/ , the examples would be correct.
// Adjust the domain and path to suit your actual URL.
// Just the domain name; no directories or path. There should be no trailing slash here.
// There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.
$bb->path = ‘/forums/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’
// What are you going to call me?
$bb->name = ‘Amazon plugin for WordPress’;
// This must be set before running the install script.
$bb->admin_email = ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’;
// Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.
$bb->mod_rewrite = true;
// 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 = 0;
// 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 = ‘xxxx’;
// The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.
// If you’re not, just leave the rest as it is.
$bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;
$bb->wp_home = ‘http://awspress.com’; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash
$bb->wp_siteurl = ‘http://awspress.com’; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash
