bbPress works alone, integration failed.

  • first, i setup my bbPress, tested it… worked great! now i went to the config.php and changed the settings to point to my wordpress. my wordpress has in the root directory and mt bbpress was i a folder root/forums/ … for the configuration, i’m sure i did everything right. changed the wordpress prefix from false to wp_ then added in the urls of my wordpress as required. i then removed the // on the next line as the instructions said.

    now i loaded the directory with bbpress… i expected to go thru the whole installation thing again but it failed. someone please help?

  • i’ve also tried activating the plugin for the WP side, didn’t help. here’s the error msg i got…

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: __() in /home/gray/domains/ on line 27

    What do you mean “but it failed”?

    it said something about capabilities.php had an error… so that’s why i added both plugins again, yet both failed to fix the problem.

    consider me a first timer dummy and guide me step by step how to go about integrating bbpress to my wordpress?

    nevermind, i figured out what went wrong:

    near the bottom…

    // Use the following line *only* if you will be loading WordPress everytime you load bbPress.

    //define('WP_BB', true);

    so i removed the //

    define('WP_BB', true);

    and that’s what caused the problem… now that i replaced the // back, integration works fine. but i have a question?

    what was that line even supposed to do? i thought load everytime means i can callup the wordpress functions in the bbpress template? or something to that extent? someone please clarify?

    Anyone know how to correct this error? “Fatal error: Call to undefined function: pm_fp_link() in /hsphere/local/home/jamtho/ on line 70”



    Sounds like that pm plugin is not working or not activated, but it’s still being called by the template?

    It’s a good practice to call plugins like so, to prevent these sort or fatal errors if the plugin is not available:

    if ( function_exists('pm_fp_link') ) {
    // then call the function

    Then there won’t be a fatal error if the plugin is not available.

    Man, I can’t believe that I forgot to reactivate the plugins after reinstall. chrishajer, Thanks! bbPress Support Forums do “Rock!”
