Custom Auth and bbPress plugin

  • sureshtmp-456



    I have a wordpress(3.4.1) installation and I don’t use standard WordPress
    Authentication. I have my own login page(mylogin.php) where I capture the
    userid/password and then compare with values in my own user table.

    Now I am using BBPress plugin(2.2.2). I have created a page(askanexpert) in
    wordpress and inside that page I have put the BBPress shortcode [bbp-forum-index].
    Now from frontend when the user does login and go to forum(,
    bbpress forum is visible and all the topics are visible, but forum shows the message that

    “You must be logged in to create new topics.”

    I think it happens because BBPress is perhaps looking for some authenticated cookie which
    was not created due to my custom authentication.

    Is there a way to create the cookie from my custom authentication page, which
    bbpress will understand ?

    I can not get rid of my custom authentication. Is there a way to fix it, so that when user is
    logged in to wordpress site he/she can use the forum as regular logged in user without login again?

    I am fine to do some programming, but not sure which way to go.
