My goal is to share one DB between wp and bbpress, one registration, seamless for users. The process of accomplishing this seems to have changed.
There’s all sorts of documentation on this topic and I’ve spent the last five hours trying to find my answer before bothering the good people of the internet, so I would greatly appreciate a hand now. It would appear that in recent changes, bb-config.php no longer exists? Installation process where you can fill out DB details in an easy form process seems to be gone?
bbPress 2.x is a plugin for WordPress just like any ‘other’ WordPress plugin and is no longer a ‘stand alone’ web app needing a bb-config.php. Everything is stored in the main WP database primarily using ‘Custom Post Types’ for the forum bits and all user bits are just WP users.
