Properly removing WP-bbPress integration

  • Good day all,

    I realize that this sounds like an unusual question, but are there any special instructions for properly removing integration between WordPress and bbPress?

    I just upgraded to WordPress 2.6, which broke cookie sync with bbPress leaving me with a semi-crippled integration. When I was using WordPress 2.5.1 the login integration worked like a charm thanks to bbPress’s easier integration with WordPress. However, I have other reasons for wanting to remove bbPress for the time being.

    Here is what my approach would be like:

    0. Backup my entire web space (<100MB) and databases (<2MB).

    1. Disable all bbPress plugins.

    2. Delete the bbPress installation (resides in /forum on my web space).

    3. Manually remove the bb_ tables from the shared WordPress-bbPress database.

    I am worried about #3 and if it is safe to do. What are your recommendations? Thanks for your help!

    As long as WordPress was installed first and you were using wordpress tables for users, you should be fine.

    I’m not sure why you don’t just roll back to 2.5.1 though.

    Thank you. I removed it without negatively affecting WordPress.
