    where would this be added?


    Mmmmh. Tried it and got: “Fatal error: Call to undefined function __() in /path/to/bbpress/bb-includes/capabilities.php on line 27”, it is the part with “function get_roles()”. Maybe it is beacuase I have defined a role “Key Master” within WordPress (with the plugin Role Manager)?


    Hi! I am truly a fan of WordPress (I use it on several websites), but I am a little bit disappointed of bbpress. I know, that it is a beta, but there are plugins for wordpress available, making integration into wordpress much better. Easier integration concerning templates, user-management, navigation etc. In spite of being a beta, the code still is “grubby” – having templates in “my-templates” does not mean that all functions will work with them. Eg. “bb-login.php” still include “login.php” from “bb-templates”. So, it means wasting time by seacrhing and fixing these things… And truly: who did directly understand “how-to-integrate-bbpress-into-wp” ? Or otherway round?

    And why do I always have “Ok. The document has moved here”? After login, logout – using IE. Using Firefox, nothing happens – no redirect, no link. I am enervated. Sorry. I have expected a bit more. Perhaps my fault…


    I would like to have a set number of topics, then subtopics within that set number. So for example:

    four topics, and the users have to post subtopics within those four topics.

    Or as in WordPress

    I have four categories, and subcategories, and then posts within the subcategories.

    Is it possible to limit the topics, have subtopics, and then post within the subtopics?


    In reply to: next release ideas


    Some of these additions are either done with a simple plugin or template modifications…

    Personally I’d like to see bbPress continue on with it’s development without spending resources to integrate the two programs together. Rather bbPress should stand alone as a forum system and not just a glorified WordPress plugin. It is my opinion that current forum systems offer way too many features and confuse themselves with content managment systems and social networking sites. Huge avatars and signatures take away from actual content and private message systems have been around for ages disguised as email.

    The community around bbPress should develope plugins for all of these specific features. Remember that 90% of your users will just read and post on your forum and all those other goodies are just taking up resources that aren’t contributing to the overall “digital discussion” philosophy of a forum. Usenet is still pretty popular and that hasn’t changed much in years.

    I’d like to see improvements on security, speed, and ease of use in the next releases rather than glittering goodies and features.

    I am working on another ghetto plugin to highlight threads that have been started since your last visit. It’s been painful and frustrating to work on this since it’s been so long since I’ve worked with php but man is it fun. Another thing I’d like to see in the next release is a list or plan of what is going to happen next so I don’t waste time creating a plugin that is going to be in the next release. :D

    Although it is fun.


    I’m biased on this issue as I’ve been in web stuffs for a number of years now so I can easily integrate a theme. It should be very simple as most of your design should be located inside your wp css file. The only thing you really have to change is some <div> placement. I threw away the default bbpress css theme and just flung bbPress into my WordPress site’s containers and it worked pretty well.



    I’ve a settled and happy little wordpress (version 2.02) community that I want to add a robust Forum software to.

    Seeing as how recommends (and uses) bbPress, I thought I’d give it a go.

    I’ve read through the (available) documentation <–that which I understood, and made changes to the “config.php” file as I believed all should be. I know I have something wrong, because I can’t seem to get the Forum to work with the WordPress installation I have.

    My problems are less now than the first install (I keep going into the database and deleting all the ‘bb_’ instances before try to run the install each time (6 times now) – but I still have a few issues I can’t seem to put my finger on and would like to pick some brains – or be led down a truer path of enlightenment.

    #1 – I am not a php programmer (an illustrator by trade) but pretty sharp so you don’t have to speak to far down to me =0)

    #2 – I took the info for the top 3 lines of the “config.php” from my wordpress install. that is I left the ‘BBDB_Name’, ‘added my DB name’ left ‘BBDB_USER’, ‘added MySQL username’ and then the database password

    #3 – the bbPress will reside within a “forums” directory inside directory named “cms” which is in the root of the site. I’m a mite confused about the blog and domain paths requested I thought I had them correct but everything lacked the WP template look (no css) and all the links for the “bbpress-integration.php” <-is this really a release plugin?), ahem…all of the links in the window this plug-in generates are two directories higher (on the root) instead of in the same directory as the forum.

    (more on this in a bit)

    This is what I have here:

    // If your bbPress URL is , 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.

    $bb->domain = ‘;; // Example: ‘;

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/cms/forums/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    respectively – and believe they are wrong – but unsure.

    #4 – named the forum ‘forum name’ ; added my email address ‘’; left pretty permalinks to false; topics to 30; edit-lock to 60; offset time zone -5; used my actual akismet key # (is that correct?) and then got to the serious stuff – the three items for integration with WordPress.

    #5 – set

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = true; // ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix.

    $bb->wp_home =; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl =; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash

    And since this site isn’t loading WordPress with bbPress (being that WordPress is the primary site) I left that alone.

    #6 – then I create a folder/directory in the ‘forum’ directory called “my-plugins” and add the “display-name.php” plug-in to it (it gets calls for error on line 15 which is “search”) everytime during config


    I turn on the plug-in added to WordPress – (/cms/wp-content/templates/plugins) “bbpress-integration.php” (which opens immediately in “raw format” – even before I run the bbPress install.

    But these two plugs are recommended for us non-techies – so I go with it.

    #7 – run the config.php follow the link to Step 1 [and get the same page shown with the “bbpress-integration.php” plug-in (links wrong) at the top, at the bottom a path error on headers and then the regular “Step 1” information to fill in.

    Repeat for step 2

    Finally, when it appears to be complete I have a login page that is without css (no template integration); links two levels up toward root than where the forum resides ‘’ instead of’

    and not wp integration what-so-ever…none of the users/passwords are recognized (over 200) etc…

    what, what, what in gods name am I doing wrong?


    thanks for any insight in advance…..

    devils advocate.


    In reply to: sports template


    thanks guys. definitely much easier to template because it is so similar to WordPress. now all I have to do is figure out a solid way of integrating the users, the current doc on that doesn’t seem to work for me.

    and sorry RedSkunk, i can’t share that template as it is the main design for our website also.

    Ok after a few more trys, I got it to load. I think I might have had a carriage return (ha, they still use that term?) in the cut and pasting. Now the work to get them to match begins. I need to now get info from the bb_header file into the front-page.




    the one-word-login thing is inferior to wordpress’ login, which allows spaces in usernames. This will become problematic to people who are integrating with WP.

    I agree though, that row should be added to the table.


    Yes right at the top right after <?php

    The congfig.php file at the bottom where it asks about wp intigration also has a statement.

    //define(‘WP_BB’, true); When I uncokmmented that it failed so I changed WP_BB to wp_bb and it worked. I’ve set up the wp url and siteurl as well. This all works.

    So when I added your code to the top I’ve tried all combinations, that is, lowercase, commenting out the define(‘WP_BB’, true); at the bottom of the config file etc.

    Thanks for responding!



    Okay, first thing’s first… if this is the forum on the bbPress site itself, it really needs to be a bit more of a better example. As it is, when I get to the forum I’m first faced with a giant tagcloud, then I have to scroll all the way down past a huge list of posts to get to the actual individual forums such as this one. Of course, I could hit the button to start a new topic at the top of the top of the page but not only is that counterintuitive, it’s a really bad idea in general that will get people just Pcoming in and posting without looking at other posts first. I’d hoped the layout would have been changed by now at least.

    Second problem, and this is one I’ve had on the wordpress forums as well but never bothered to ask about it. At the bottom of the post box it lists allowed tags (shortly after mentioning “Enter a few words (called tags)” with a link to the tagcloud rather than a definition of tags), but what gets me is “Put code in between backticks.” I’ve been running forums since before ISPs could offer residential Internet connections and yet I have absolutely no clue what that means. Unless this software is only meant for WordPress users (which I’m one of, btw), it would be best to get a bit more accessible to ordinary people in terms of language/jargon.

    My other large beef is that the forums read like blog comments rather than forum discussions. Threading would be my number one request if I intended to use it. I guess my number two request would be integrating said threaded comments into the comments section of blog entries for those using it with a WP blog, though that’s a lot more complicated. I’d want to start off with the other way around by having the blog able to automatically display posts from certain sections such as Announcements and such. I’m not sure if that functionality exists yet, so apologies if it does. If not, I suppose a workaround could be reading the rss feed from that section into the blog section, but aggregating your own feeds is a fairly silly notion.

    That’s it for initial feedback right now. I may come take another look when the software has matured a bit… by that I mean the core, it shouldn’t have to depend on plugins and themes to have very basic funcionality on its own.


    Ps. Oh, and I’ve had strange issues logging in here on two seperate occasions.



    define(‘WP_BB’, true);

    Where are you putting that? It should be the very first thing in bbPress config.php


    This can also be caused by defining WP_BB to true without manually loading WordPress as well.


    In reply to: Cookies

    In addition to editing bbPress’ cookie information, you will have to edit WordPress’:

    for both bbPress and WordPress

    the domain should be (note the first .)

    the path should be /

    So in bbPress’ config.php:

    $bb->cookiedomain = ‘’;

    $bb->cookiepath = ‘/’;

    in WordPress’ wp-config.php:

    define(‘COOKIE_DOMAIN’, ‘’);

    define(‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/’);

    define(‘SITECOOKIEPATH’, ‘/’);

    Let us know how it works.


    PHP Warning: rawurlencode() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/spider/public_html/wp/wp-includes/classes.php on line 1658

    Well i have that problem when i integrate my bbpress with wordpress. It only happen when i view “manage->post” and “manage->pages”. I already edit the classes.php and it only fix my “manage->post”. My “manage->pages” are still broken.

    If i disable the integration, everything work perfectly without any error. Anyone know how to fix this thing?


    In reply to: Integration with WP



    Actually u can load bbpress into wordpress :) I have tried it and it work perfectly.


    First let me say what a breeze to install and intigrate. I didnot even realize it was integrated untill I noticed while logged into WP admin I brought up the forum in another tab and was logged in there too! Nice job.

    Ok now to my question, Im trying to get the forum to look like wp, in my cae its and Like what youve done with this site.

    My problem is that every time I try and ad



    define(‘WP_BB’, true);

    I get a crash. Interestingly though define(‘WP_BB’, true); works under the last section of the config.php file but only as define(‘wp_bb’,true); Its how its defined now.

    So my thouht is do I need to even do this? Can I just start adding wp tags tp my bb_template files? If so what should for example <?php bb_get_header(); ?> be changed to in the front-page.php file if this is the way to go about it.

    Many thanks,


    Oh, sorry no access to my error log files which is a real bummer for stuff like this to help.


    Topic: Cookies

    in forum Troubleshooting

    I’m trying to get cookies integration with wordpress working, but after some failed attempts (I read the FAQs and searched on the forum) I can’t figure out how to do this. My WordPress installation is at while bbPress is at (so bbPress is not in a subdirectory of WP, but on a third level domain). What should I do?




    Yeah i already renamed it – actually I copied it and changed the name of my copy then edited it:


    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘themboy7_bbpres’); // The name of the database

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘themboy7_tmgforu’); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘**********’); // …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 , 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.

    $bb->domain = ‘;; // Example: ‘;

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/forum/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘TMG Forum’;

    // This must be set before running the install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘’;

    // 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;

    // 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 = ***********;


    In reply to: Ultimate BBpress Guide


    Dear astereo,

    Great guide! One thing I would add, however, is what to do when there are errors, ie troubleshooting. For some reason I get stuck at the install.php file telling me “Cannot select DB.” This is despite the fact that I have followed the directions you mentioned (and those included on this website) to a T and have successfully installed WordPress, phpBB, and other php/mysql web programs with no problem. Also it seems like the member n2 is having the same problem. If the solution is found to this, perhaps it could be put in your ultimate guide, so that others do not fall into the same trap. Thank you.


    In reply to: Ultimate BBpress Guide


    Great, thanks. Although I’m still having problems installing this :(

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/bookieb/public_html/bbpress/config.php on line 46

    Line 46 (and further):

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix.

    $bb->wp_home = ‘’; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘’; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash


    In reply to: Keep bbPress Light


    why not do as wordpress does? just copy a script/code into a folder and then activate the plug-in and then folow the install instructions acorting too the plug-in readme about tags? and so on?

    then you can easly can deside yourself witch you need this plug-in ore not just like wordpress.


    In reply to: sports template


    Yes its quit nice skin to bbpress, i hope in the futre there vil come more cool skins to bbpress like wordpress


    #1. have a smoother “intuitive” integration between wordpress and bbpress?

    #2. plugins and theme options pages in control panel *doh* :D

    #3. in the bbpress control panel, have a link that says “over to wordpress” and vice versa; that would require bbpress and wordpress to “recognize” each other’s presence on the website. a result of suggestion #1

    #4. search function? etc

    that’s all i can muster… otherwise it’s awesome.
