bbpress integration after BP upgrade

    Just briefly as I wrote a detailed description and it got “lost”

    Have just upgraded wpmu, bp and bbpress to all latest version.

    I had a working integration of BP and bbpress previously and everything during upgrade seems to have worked but there is a problem.

    I am using an external bbpress for forum and a diff. db.

    The wpmu/BP installtion is here :

    xhttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/network/

    The external forum installtion is here :

    xhttp://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/forums/

    But BP wants to keep tyring to see the forum here:

    xhttp://australianracinggreyhound.com/network/forums

    Oddly enough you can see the tags from the external forum have been integrated but none of the posts!

    Obv. I can run two forums in parallel and this is not theme dependant as I have changed BP themes and prob. still occurs.

    I a haven’t mod’d any files or core yet and don’t want to until I know everything is working.

    I have two questions :

    1. Is this a bug? If so how do I fix it without hacking the core?

    2. Given the changes soon to come – is it reailistic to keep running the forum externally and from a diff. db? Would I be better to import the forum db in to the wpmu db? If yes, how would I go about doing that?

    Also another issue – the “log in” button just below the tabs wants to log in at xhttp://australianracinggreyhound.com/wp-login.php

    This is of course wrong – the correct login should be xxhttp://australianracinggreyhound.com/netwrok/wp-login.php

    This bug may be theme related – I haven’t tested in the other themes.

    I am not asking a difficult question here!

    BuddyPress’s standard “forums” links are created with the assumption that BP is using the standard integrated version of bbPress. Since your installation is elsewhere, you’ll have to redirect those links. It should only be in one place:

    In header.php of your BP theme, replace <a href="<?php echo get_option('home') ?>/<?php echo BP_FORUMS_SLUG ?>" title="<?php _e( 'Forums', 'buddypress' ) ?>"><?php _e( 'Forums', 'buddypress' ) ?></a> with <a href="http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/forums/" title="<?php _e( 'Forums', 'buddypress' ) ?>"><?php _e( 'Forums', 'buddypress' ) ?></a>

    As for your more general question, I faced the same issue with a project of mine (whether to maintain an external installation of bbPress or migrate over). I decided that, in the long run, it would be best to move to the standard, integrated version of bbPress. I described the process here: http://teleogistic.net/2009/12/upgrading-from-buddypress-1-0-to-1-1/

    Not sure what’s causing your login issue, but it might be fixable by hardcoding the link into your theme’s header.php file. Replace <?php echo site_url( 'wp-login.php' ) ?> with the correct path to the login page.

    Thank Boone Gorges – most helpful – I really appreciate you taking the time to answer these questions.

    Like you I think it will be best to migrate over to the same installation – I’ll follow your tips to that end.

    Cheers

    Just wanted to add I have followed Boone Gorges’ instructions from that link and everythign went like clockwork – I now have a full BB forum running in the same db as BP and everything came across spot on
