Inserting path/to/wp-blog-header.php

  • i Read somewhere

    “In order to do it, you need to put require_once(‘path/to/wp-blog-header.php’); in bbPress’ bb-config.php (wp-blog-header is in the same directory as WordPress’ wp-config.php file).”

    Where do I exactly insert this code in wp-config.php file?: require_once(‘path/to/wp-blog-header.php’); ??

    This is what i see in my wp-config.php file. Thanks



    * The base configurations of bbPress.


    * This file has the following configurations: MySQL settings, Table Prefix,

    * Secret Keys and bbPress Language. You can get the MySQL settings from your

    * web host.


    * This file is used by the installer during installation.


    * @package bbPress


    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //

    /** The name of the database for bbPress */

    define( ‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘metroadv’ );

    /** MySQL database username */

    define( ‘BBDB_USER’, ‘metroadv’ );

    /** MySQL database password */

    define( ‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘xxxxxx’ );

    /** MySQL hostname */

    define( ‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’ );

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */

    define( ‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’ );

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */

    define( ‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ” );


    * Authentication Unique Keys.


    * Change these to different unique phrases!

    * You can generate these using the {@link secret-key service}


    * @since 1.0


    define( ‘BB_AUTH_KEY’, ‘put your unique phrase here’ );

    define( ‘BB_SECURE_AUTH_KEY’, ‘put your unique phrase here’ );

    define( ‘BB_LOGGED_IN_KEY’, ‘put your unique phrase here’ );

    define( ‘BB_NONCE_KEY’, ‘put your unique phrase here’ );



    * bbPress Database Table prefix.


    * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique

    * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!

    It goes in bb-config.php, not wp-config.php, but I’d put it right at the top, after the opening <?php:


    The path/to/wp-blog-header.php it not to be typed literally. It will be a filesystem path, something that is dependent on where WordPress is installed on your server. Be sure you change the path to the correct value for your installation.

    Ok, I have inserted it. nothing change tho, the forum theme still look different with the main blog. :(



    Adding that to bb-config.php just allows you to use WordPress functions in bbPress. What did you want to happen?
