where is my bb-admin ?

  • wanrenqingkong


    I install a WP2.5.1 and then trying to integrate bbpress with it.

    but mayde due to permission issue, there is error when installing, so I manaually modified bb-config.php according to related document.

    but after integration, bbpress admin panel disappeared, even I login as admin and then manually type the bb-admin url, it redirects me to bb-press main page.

    Some part of bb-config.php as below, I think it is possiblly the cause(P.S. db prefix for bb is bb_ , db prefix for WP is wp251_):

    // If you are running multiple bbPress installations in a single database,

    // you will probably want to change this.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    $bb->new_keymaster = ‘admin’; // or whatever the name of the account is.

    // Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the

    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.

    // For example, install to bb-includes/languages and set BB_LANG to ‘de’

    // to enable German language support.

    define(‘BB_LANG’, ”);

    // If your bbPress URL is , the examples would be correct.

    // Adjust the domain and path to suit your actual URL.

    // Just the domain name; no directories or path. There should be no trailing slash here.

    $bb->domain = ‘’; // Example: ‘’

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘New bbPress Site’;

    // This must be set before running the install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    // The number of topics that show on each page.

    $bb->page_topics = 30;

    // A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.

    $bb->edit_lock = 60;

    // Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.

    $bb->gmt_offset = 0;

    // Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage

    // of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at


    $bb->akismet_key = false;

    // The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave the rest as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp251_’; // ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix.

    $bb->wp_home = ‘’;

    // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘’;

    // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash

    /* Stop editing */

    define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

    require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );

    When you are logged in as keymaster, do you have a link next to your profile link that says “admin”?

    It looks something like this:

    Welcome, admin! View your profile (Admin | Log out)

    If not, it sounds like you lost the keymaster capabilities.

    You can search the forum for keymaster and find many more related topics.



    I re-installed a free bbpress and it is working fine, thanks for your suggestion though



    yo! I’m having the same problem now. I do indeed see the proper set of links as follows:

    Welcome, admin! View your profile (Admin | Log out)

    But if i click “Admin” nothing happens, it just reloads the same screen.

    Any cures?

    Log out, flush your cookies, log back in.

    Did you mesh bbPress and WordPress?



    nickaster, please start a new topic if your issue is unresolved, and post the version of the software you installed. Thank you.
