Logged in on WordPress, bbPress header shows as logged in, but can't post

  • Hi, all,

    I’m having issues with the forums on It’s installed correctly (as far as I can tell, at least!), but no-one can post on it.

    The log-in system seems to work fine, but the forums still show “You must log in to post”.

    DBG is functionally identical to our sister site which has a fully-working forum. The only differences are in the database (content, config, etc).

    Anyone got any ideas what might be going wrong?

  • OK, if you change line 189 of forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.wp-auth.php to this:

    $key = wp_hash( $username . $pass_frag . ‘|’ . $expiration, $scheme );

    It works.

    The standard is this:

    $key = call_user_func(backpress_get_option(‘hash_function_name’), $username . $pass_frag . ‘|’ . $expiration, $scheme );

    Which doesn’t work. Has the algorithm changed in the latest version of WordPress?
