Help with WP BBPress integration install

  • I have a WP install with BBPress installed on the same database in a subdirectory of WP. Install went well, looked in the database and my new forum topic was written in the database but all links on the BBPress forum lead to “No input file specified”. I’m suspecting that it has something to do with the config file. Let me know if you see something wrong here:

    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    // The full URL of your bbPress install

    $bb->uri = ‘’;

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘The Asian Man Forum’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    // Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage

    // of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at


    $bb->akismet_key = ”; // Example: ‘0123456789ab’

    // The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave it as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ‘’; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // Example: ‘’

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘’; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // Example: ‘’

    I’ve turned permalinks off because it seems people are having trouble with them in conjunction with GoDaddy (my clients host : ( ).

    I’ve created a .htaccess file with:

    Options +MultiViews

    Not sure what’s up. The default forum content is not even showing up.

    Cheer all and thanks in advance

  • Got it working, Stupid GoDaddy latency.




    There are many other things you will need to do to get it working properly with wordpress.

    1. cookies paths need to be fixed in both programs

    2. the integration plugin should be installed

    3. the allow spaces in usernames plugin should be installed

    4. force all registrations/logins through wordpress from the several places they are buried on the forum (the WP interfaces are far more developed)

    5. add the ” set default role when registering new user though forum” plugin tweak

    There are probably a few others I’ve forgotten by now.
