    Hello all,

    I’m new to this, (apparently) I followed the isntructions to integrate WP users with BBPress. So far there’s only one user (me).

    I can log in to BBPress using the WP user (admin), but apparently I’m not the admin of BBpress… so I cannot access the BBPress dashboard anymore.

    Where should I look for to fix this?

    Tks a lot

    make sure you have the integration plugin on WordPress side.

    now if you can see admin link after logging in, its just a cookie issue else you have lost privileges http://blog.ashfame.com/2009/09/fix-lost-admin-access-bbpress/

    Hello Ashfame

    Thanks for your prompt help.

    I have the plugin installed on WP side (even though the plugin is for 2.8 and I use 3.0.1). I added the 2 lines on wp-config to share cookies, and as I said before I can login on BBpress using my WP admin user. However, I cannot access BBPress admin page.

    On my WP DB the wp_usermeta for my user on wp_capabilities is a:1:{s:13:”administrator”;b:1;}. Checking your site you recommend changing it to a:1:{s:9:”keymaster”;b:1;}…

    Is it safe to change that on WP side? And why isn’t it correct on the first place?

    I got access back, but not entirely. Here what I did:

    - I created a new user

    – Accessed the DB and set that user as “keymaster”

    – Got the Admin link using this user and from it, set myself as Admin (I was “inactive”)

    – Now I have access to the admin panel, but not to all its options (for instance no plugins, appearance, integrations…)

    I’m afraid of changing my WP DB manually and **** up my site.

    I decided to use the new user as keymaster, no problem in doing that.
