    bbpress and WordPress are two separate entites.

    They can share a database, and tehy can share logins.

    If you want to hack and force “deep integration” into your bbPress install then you should follow this guide:

    I have a question about that tutorial…


    Step # 11

    It says:

    In your WP folder locate and open “wp-config.php” and leave it open. (done with Coda)

    Go to this website: (been there before)

    Select all and COPY the all information on that site. (easy)

    Go to your wp-config.php file and highlight line 45 (it starts with define(‘AUTH_KEY’)) to line 48 (starts with define(‘NONCE_KEY’)) and PASTE the new keys. You basically change your 4 keys to 8 keys.

    This one i’am not sure about,

    When i installed WordPress i already went to that “secret-key/1.1/salt” page to generate a key for my WordPress site..

    That Key is also listed in my wp-config.php file right now. Do i need to fill in a new (both the same) generated key to the wp-config.php and bb-config.php file or can i just use the same key that is already used by my WordPress site and that i listed in my wp-config.php file now?

    Thank you for that tutorial it’s good..


    So far so good.. no problems.

    Only i found some problem and i had to double check on the last step to get it working 100%.

    I’am working on a Mac with Coda and i copy-/past the absolute path to my bb-config.php file (thanks to the abs.php file) and saved it.

    But i hadn’t seen that Coda messed up my code when saving. (bad)

    include_once( ‘/var/www/vhosts/’ );


    include_once( övar/www/vhosts/ö );

    Look at the first and last ‘ ‘ things.

    Thats why i got a white screen on the forum page.

    Very silly, and it can cost you lots of frustration if you don’t check things twice..

    Hi thank you but my problem is another, my problem is to load bb-load instead wp-load



    don’t know if this is the right place to post this – but I just made the huge mistake to give the table prefixes identical values in both bbpress and wordpress config files. This resulted in 400 post from my blog being deleted.

    I think this should be mentioned in the integration guide as it is a pretty easy mistake to do.
