bbpress-1.0.2 & wordpress-2.8.6 integration

  • Hello,

    I think I have these two integrated and working but seems to be a problem with the bbpress keymaster having access to the wp-admin area. The only solution I have so far is to have 2 admins…

    one for WP ( a:1:{s:13:”administrator”;b:1;} )


    one for BB ( a:1:{s:9:”keymaster”;b:1;} )

    I have set the role in the bbpress-admin for wp-admins to be keymasters but it doesn’t seem to work…

    Am I doing something wrong?

  • oh i worked it out….



    to the admin user in phpMyAdmin

    edit: Only problem is cannot logout using bb-login.php?logout=1

    anyone know why?

    This is usually due to a cookie issue. Clear your cookies and then try to login / logout.

    For me, it’s bb-login.php?action=logout. I think your theme might have the link hardcoded. If so, change the link to <?php bb_logout_link(); ?>.

    ok.. will try thanks.

    I can’t seem to edit/delete posts in WP anymore… Does anyone know if having admin username set to administrator/keymaster affects this or not?

    @ shansta – The WordPress admin is a bbPress Keymaster. This is what I have, and all is working fine. I’m not sure about the a:2 you added, with both capabilities…


    wp_capabilities a:1:{s:13:”administrator”;b:1;}

    bb_capabilities a:1:{s:9:”keymaster”;b:1;}

    Dashboard –> WordPress Integration

    WordPress Administrator –> bbPress Keymaster

    WordPress Editor –> bbPress Administrator

    WordPress Author –> bbPress Member

    WordPress Contributor –> bbPress Member

    WordPress Subscriber –> bbPress Member

    As hatter mentioned, login/logout problems are usually a cookie issue.
