Can’t Login!

  • I seem to be having trouble logging in at all in bbpress. I integrated it successfully with WordPress, but I can’t login with my wordpress user name and password. I figured, something must be up, so I registered a new account in bbpress to try it out – password was mailed and everything – and when I went to login, still nothing. The page refreshes but goes nowhere and doesn’t say I’m logged in. Seems like a mod rewrite issue, but I can’t figure out what it is. During the initial install I set the config to clean urls, then used an .htaccess like the following:

    # BEGIN BBPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /location_of_install/

    Options +MultiViews


    # END BBPress

    After doing so I kept getting 404’s when clicking on topics, etc (only to find out later I needed to fix my url at the beginning of config). Now everything is working except logins. Any ideas?
