BBPress / WordPress – Same Prefixes?

  • Before I break things, I wanted to know if I can use the same table prefix for both BBPress and WordPress? The reason I ask is because I have several sites in the same database and I’d like to pick a convention. Anyone know if this will cause any problems?

  • Yes, it will. WordPress has (what is usually) wp_posts and bbPress has (ditto) bb_posts, with a different table structure, so there’d be issues.

    What are the dis/advantages of putting tables in the same database, does anyone know?

    Thanks! I went ahead and put the two as different prefixes. Can you make sure the developers put a note about that in config.php!
