WordPress Theme Integration

  • Mufasa


    In previous versions to get your wp header into your bbPress theme you needed to include the wp-blog-header.php in the config file.

    Doing this now breaks logging in to the bbPress site. No error messages – it just does not login.

    We want the forums to be here:

    Not looking like this:

    There must be as easy way to do this. I must say I thought it would get easier as new versions were released – not harder ;P

    Ya know what…

    What would solve all these problems would be shortcodes.

    If I could just create a page and add a shortcode:

    [bbPress] then all our problems would just go away.

    Then if you wanted to get the bbPress “search” and “hot tags” to show in your sidebar you can just add the bbPress widgets and they would in theory just work.

    I guess that means my request is:

    1) Add a bbPress [forum] shortcode for wordpress

    2) Release some bbPress widgets for the wordpress sidebar



    Exactly the same problem here – posted yesterday.

    It is odd that admin can still login though…? Do you find the same?



    Can somebody set that spammer on fire? Please!!! Seriously hot sticky napalm would be just fine…

    Nobody can login to our site at all – including Admin.

    We will probably hack it to work – but I think we should all vote for bbPress [shortcodes] and widgets.

    1) [bbPress]

    2) bbPress widgets

    Hail bbPress [shortcodes] and widgets ;)



    How can we vote on this? Clearly lots of people want easier integration with their site – its just too bloody hard to get it going.

    Bring on a WordPress [shortcode] and widgets!!

    I’m very happy with how easy it it get the accounts to jive but what about the front end of our websites. I don’t expect the bbPress team to just start listening and acting on what I say – but I will put my money where my mouth is and if the bbPress team spoke to us and pointed us in the right direction – what hooks to use etc then I would even look at doing the code to make it happen.

    But I don’t even know if people care :P



    I’m not going to let this go :P



    Mufasa, I’m in the same boat. I’m trying to integrate my bbpress into Please let me know if you find out how to do this.





    We’re going to look at it again later this week. We’re busy building a debain box for a new WordPress MU site that we are about to launch.

    I’m telling you though – if somebody made a [shortcode] and some WP widgets this would be so freaking awesome…. I think my head would just explode :D

    Hear, hear….

    Then, check it again for exactness…

    Then, check it a third time…

    It took me a little back-and forth, but I was able to make all of my logins and logouts work in every direction without any hacking of the core files or additional plug-ins.
