wordpress not allowing bb-admin access

  • I used this code from the documentation:


    to intigrate bbpress with wordpress, so I could use my current wordpress themes.

    the only problem I have now, is that when I try to access /bbpress/bb-admin I am automatically forwarded to /bbpress and I have no access of the admin screen.

    any ideas?

    [edited out a stupid idea]

    WAIT: update 26 minutes later. If you’re not logged in, trying to access /bbpress/bb-admin/ is SUPPOSED to redirect you to the home page of the forum. When you log in there as keymaster or administrator, you then have a link to View your profile (Admin | Log out) – and in my installation, clicking Admin takes you to /bbpress/bb-admin/. You can also access the /bbpress/bb-admin/ URL directly, but only after logging in as keymaster. If that’s what’s happening, then that is correct.

    Is it possible you can’t log in on the home page of the forum as administrator or keymaster? Did that account lose privileges or something? Maybe you have a different problem. But direct access to /bbpress/bb-admin is prevented by design until you are logged in.

    here is the URL to bbpress:

    and the admin:

    i’m using this permalink structure:

    thanks for your help!




    Does this problem happen with the stock theme? Maybe it’s a problem with the customization?

    Where do you log in? Normally at there is a spot to login or register, then logging in as keymaster allows access to the admin panel.

    If you log in as keymaster, do you have a link to Admin your forum or can you access ?

    It doesn’t look like you are using permalinks at all for bbPress, which is fine.

    BTW, I don’t think this has anything to do with WordPress.

    I added

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php bb_get_header(); ?>

    to the beginning, and

    <?php bb_get_footer(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    to the end.

    obviously, this calls both the wordpress and bbpress headers.

    that makes everything work, except for the wordpress search engine.

    any ideas?
