bbpress & wordpress integration

  • kernow


    I’m a bit confused. What is the current situation re WordPress and bbpress integration. I’ve browsed the ‘help’ guides, and some mention integration is fine, others mention a plugin which currently is under a shadow re security. Currently I’m having a problem with my forum integration, so am planning to install versions WordP and BB on xammp to experiment.

    Assuming I’m installing the two on locahost, what should be edited on the config file to ensure it works correctly?

    Integration works fine.

    If you are using WordPress 2.3.x you need bbPress 0.8.3.x and if you are using WordPress trunk (2.5 alpha) you should use bbPress trunk r1075.

    Essentially cookie hashes and paths have to be sync’ed and a plugin is needed on the bbPress side to set WordPress roles if they register through bbPress.

    I’ve assembled most of the details here:

    Or you can comb through the integration tag here:



    thanks for the info. Have installed and sync’ed WordPress and BBpress on xammp now. Really there is nothing like an install you can play with without worrying about it all crashing :)

    Re the integration plugins with security issues, what is the situation with those?
