  • netcompetency


    Ehlo all,

    i just want to share a solution for BBPress 1.0 Alpha 6 – WordPress MU 2.7 cookie integration — or a hack. My problem is that after installation of WPMU and BBPress, i can not make a single sign on : to make a user log in to BBPress can access WordPress without another login and a user log in to WordPress can access BBPress without another login.

    I just use Cookie integration with WordPress installed at


    And bbpress at


    After Googling i found hint about cookie domain, SECRET KEY etc, but it does not work …

    When i check the cookie, the cookie from BBPress is appended with some words for example :


    meanwhile the cookie for wordpress is simply


    I then change a line of code at bb-settings.php from

    define(‘BB_HASH’, $bb->wp_cookies_integrated ? md5($bb->wp_siteurl) : md5($bb->uri));


    define(‘BB_HASH’, ”);

    Somehow IT WORK !
