bbP/wP integration incompatible w/ sidebar widgets?
Hi everyone, I’ve just had one hell of a night trying to figure out this bbP/wP integration stuff. Eventually, I thought I’d do a clean test install and work from there to see if I could isolate the issue, so I installed:
via MAMP on Mac OS 10.4.8
with WP in root and BBpress as subdirectory “discussions”.
I then configured wp-config.php and config.php like so:
$table_prefix = 'wp_';
define ('WPLANG', '');
require_once(dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/wp-config.php');
$bb_table_prefix = 'bb_';
$bb->domain = 'http://192.168.0.149:8888';
$bb->path = '/discussions/';
$bb->name = 'the Forum';
$bb->admin_email = 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
$bb->mod_rewrite = false;
$bb->page_topics = 30;
$bb->edit_lock = 60;
$bb->gmt_offset = -8;
$bb->akismet_key = '***********';
$bb->wp_table_prefix = 'wp_';
$bb->wp_home = 'http://192.168.0.149:8888';
$bb->wp_siteurl = 'http://192.168.0.149:8888';
define('BBPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/' );
require_once( BBPATH . 'bb-settings.php' );
(the 8888/9 ports are MAMP defaults; 192.168.0.149 is the LAN IP of the computer I’m running this on)
Then I ran the install scripts, and lo and behold, everything seemed to be working great. Then I began to add plugins one by one, and, to make a long story short, found that:
Whenever the Sidebar Widgets plugin was activated along with a separate widget (including those included with it, del.icio.us and google, as well as akismet, which has a widget built-in), trying to load a BBpress page would yield a blank page. However, if Sidebar Widgets was activated but no widget plugins were, it would work fine–I could even use the integrated widgets (RSS, categories, calendar, etc) on the blog. Likewise, if Sidebar Widgets is deactivated, but all the widgets are activated, it still works fine.
Also: the Front Page Topics plug-in for bbPress, regardless of any other plugins in wP or bbP, yields a similar blank page on posting a new reply, starting a new topic, making a new forum, or logging out. If I go back and refresh, the topic/reply/forum HAS been created… but the logout attempt is UNsuccessful. Like I said, I tried this with no bb or wp plugins, as well as a variety of them, and its always the same result.
Ok, its 4:15 in the morning, I have class at 8 and I’m going to go pass out, but hopefully this is enough information for someone to tell me what gives…
Thanks for reading/any help.
