Re: WordPress 2.7 options
It’s strange that I didn’t think to downgrade WP 2.7 to match bbPress 0.9 but I guess I overthought the process and figured the new “auth” cookie method would be required in the admin area on WP so it would break. I assume you have tested your admin access in WordPress after your changes?
WordPress 2.7 added three new kinds of cookies, surprised it doesn’t break anything when you force it backwards. Did you delete all of your old cookies on your browser to make sure it wasn’t “cheating” ?
In any case, my new plugin is here and should be downloadable for testing shortly:
One plus to the WP downgrade method is it might work with deep integration where mine will definitely not work and should not even be tried that way.
