Trouble with first time login

    I’ve just installed bbpress for the first time and that part seems to have worked. Now I’m trying to log in for the first time and after entering my correct username and password (I’ve triple checked everything) and am sent to my blogs 404.php page. It’s like it’s redirecting or something. I’m stuck. Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong?

    Hi,

    do you checked the setting in the config.php file?

    it must be something like:

    // The full URL of your bbPress install
    $bb->uri = 'http://www.domain.com/forums/';

    maybe you can post some URL?

    That still happens at bbpress.org/forums as well. This was reported long ago, but it still happens here. Maybe the same thing is happening to you.

    https://trac.bbpress.org/ticket/588

    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/redirect-error-on-login-at-bbpressorg

    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/login-error

    I have noticed that even though the redirect seems to continue until the browser times out, if I cancel the page load, then just try to access the forum, I am logged in. Maybe you would find the same thing?

    Maybe it’s not noticed frequently by people who use bbPress heavily since their cookie never times out and they’re never asked to log in again?

    I assume that bbPress is in a sub-directory of your WordPress install?

    Sounds like the rewrite rules are incorrectly set or the existing WordPress rules are somehow getting in the way of bbPress.

    What type of permalinks are you using? Set that value to FALSE in your config.php if they are turned on and see if this still happens. I think that will narrow it down a bit.

    Thanks people, I’ll give this a try when I get home tonight and report back.

    Thanks guys, I’ve got that part working, but now the default theme isn’t working. I activate the theme in the admin panel, yet it still looks like it’s missing a style sheet. Any ideas?

    The default theme is working here. Maybe something is cached with your browser. Clear the cache or use a different browser. The path to the theme in the source HTML is correct as well: http://www.guitarfxdepot.com/forum/bb-templates/kakumei/style.css

    Thanks. I’ve looked at it on another connection and it seems fine. Must have been a cache issue. Thank you all for your help!
