Any idea to integrate wp and bb login forms?

  • After integrating wp and bb and having wordpress header, footer and sidebar for both, wp and bb, I have these wordpress functions in my sidebar;

    <?php wp_register(”); ?>

    <?php wp_loginout(); ?>

    <?php wp_meta(); ?>

    And in bb press frontpage I have this one;

    <?php login_form(); ?>

    First, I thought I could replace wp functions in the sidebar for bbpress’ <?php login_form(); ?> but this function it is not defined for wordpress and I have got an error.

    Besides there are two other problems;

    * if users register through bbpress, their roles are not defined in wordpress

    * if I remove wordpress meta functions from the sidebar I lose the link to the admin control panel.

    Well, another option would be using the wp functions for login;

    <?php wp_register(”); ?>

    <?php wp_loginout(); ?>

    <?php wp_meta(); ?>

    and then changing their beaviour so;

    * whenever you login you are not taken to the control panel unless you are the admin

    * whenever you are an user and you click in “site admin” link wich appears above the log-out link, you are taken to the bbpress profile.php

    My questions are; first of all, do you find any sense in all of this or is it just crap? :)

    does anybody know where is defined wordpress login meta links so I can change them?

    and finally, does anybody have a better idea?
