WP Integration: header integration problem

  • Hi, I’ve managed to integrate a fresh install of both WP and bbP successfully up to the point before integrating the WP header/theme.

    Despite the overhead I’d like to use the method described at but when I use this method nothing happens; the forum remains looking the same.

    I’m using a full URL address (i.e. http://) to call the blog header because a relative address doesn’t appear to work and I can’t seem to get the absolute address correct.

    Any ideas?

  • Do I need to add some code to the bbPress theme to call the header maybe?

    Solved, my problem was I needed to change <?php bb_get_header(); ?> to <?php get_header(); ?> in the bbPress theme files, but I also needed to move require_once('../wp-blog-header.php'); up to the top of my config file.

    It would be useful if both these aspects were mentioned in the Functions section of

    Who can I contact to suggest these changes to that page?



    I tagged the thread modlook which means a moderator will look at it.

    I am pretty sure sambauers or mdawaffe will look at this thread at some point as they have access to the documentation :)

    I wouldn’t recommend doing that, so I won’t add it to the documentation. WP tends to stomp on stuff that bbPress needs. I’ve had a project on the back-burner for a while now that will eventually allow what you are after. But it’s not ready yet.
