Function conflicts with bbPress upgrade?
I’m upgrading my test site from BP 1.0.3 and a separate installation of bbPress to BP 1.1.2 and running into troubles. When I first tried to install bbPress through the Forum Setup panel of the admin screen (as a new installation, since my old installation of bbPress stored info in a separate database and I was going to move it manually to the default location in the wp database), the wizard said that the installation was successful. But no wp_bb_ tables were created in the database, and whenever I went to a page that called the forums I either got a WSOD or a 404.
I traced the problem a bit and found that there are some functions in bp-forums/bbpress/bb-includes/functions.bb-template.php that are causing problems. If I remove this handful of functions (starting with login_form and ending with bb_get_title), forum pages throughout BP begin to work. I’m not sure what’s happening here – is it possible that there are function name conflicts? I still have the old version of bbPress running on the server, but there is no deep integration so I’m not sure how it could be causing conflicts (though it might be).
Any ideas would be very helpful as I troubleshoot.
