member database and admin

  • I have just recently installed bbPress so that I could make it where members of my site could use 1 account for both instead of separate ones. When I did so it caused me to lose my admin but didn’t actually integrate them. What can I do to get my admin back and integrate wordpress and bbPress? I don’t know much more to say about this but if needing more information I will be gladly to give.

    What versions of bbPress and WordPress are you using?

    Also, what did you do to “make it where members of my site could use 1 account for both instead of separate ones”… was there a specific set of integration instructions you followed? If so, please post a link to that too!

    I am using the latest versions of bbPress and WordPress which are 2.7.1 (wp) and (bbp)

    The instructions are rather inside in the installation of bbPress which you can make the integrating processes through the databases.



    Try the instructions here?

    WordPress 2.7 uses a different type of cookie, so you can either downgrade the WordPress cookie (using SuperAnn’s plugin) or upgrade the bbPress 0.9 cookie (using _ck_’s plugin). Both are linked from the instructions!

    The problem I have first off is that I can not access my admin cp on the forum. When I first tried everything it some how made me a normal member and was wondering what can I do besides uninstall and reinstall. I didn’t want to resort to that since it was a hassle for me to install in the first place.



    Try this plugin and see if it does the trick?

    I have gotten my admin back but now I’ve tried your previous suggestion for the integrating but now everytime I try to log in it throws back an error so I deleted the auth_cookie from the bb-config and now it won’t let me log in because it’s like refreshing the page. I thought doing this thing would be easy.

    Edit: forgot to tell you the error…

    Warning: Cookie names can not contain any of the following ‘=,; trn1314’ in /home/halounsc/public_html/forum/bb-includes/pluggable.php on line 192

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/halounsc/public_html/forum/bb-includes/pluggable.php:192) in /home/halounsc/public_html/forum/bb-includes/pluggable.php on line 232

    Was going to give me information by editing but the edit button is now gone.

    I have redone my bbPress and everything is working perfectly and no errors besides the simple fact that I still don’t understand how to link 2 account together so they can be used as a whole on both sites instead of separates. I really would love to use the tutorial you have posted before about integrating them but I am just not that smart on these things. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also how do I go about making my forum look as my website? Is that part of the integrating process?
