Group Forum Integration
I’ve tried to reserve this forum as an absolute last resort, but I’ve gone through the bbPress install from scratch 4 or 5 times now. I’ve been following Jimgroom’s instructions HERE as well as Trent’s sticky post HERE. This last time, I have FINALLY managed to get bbPress/WPMu basic integration to work (I had a lot of problems with cookies), so now I’m hesitant to wipe the slate clean again.
The first time I went through all of this, I couldn’t get cookie integration to work, but it DID seem like bbPress was communicating with BuddyPress because when I disabled/reenabled discussions, the forum appeared on the bbPress side, but only about half the time did the posts I made appear on the BuddyPress side. And when I tried to make a new post/reply, I got the “There was an error making that post” message.
Now I have cookie integration working, but I can’t get any kind of BuddyPress integration to work and I’ve checked, rechecked, redone, restarted more times than I could possibly document.
I had a couple questions about the procedure though that might lead to what I’m doing wrong. First, Jimgroom says to delete your auth keys and let WP redo them, but he says you won’t get them all. Well I did get them all, and pasted them all into both wp-config.php and bb-config.php. However, the auth_salt and logged_in_salt keys were DIFFERENT than the ones I would get if I went into /wp-admin/options.php. Which are right?
Also, Trent says in step 6 to go into the groups admin page. I assume he means the bbPress Forums admin page?
Finally, I found the installation-readme.txt file in bp-forums, and it says to not check the cookie integration box at all when installing bbPress. It’s taken me long enough to get that to work in the first place. Could that be my problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and feel free to ask any other questions.
PS- With my first post, let me also express my gratitude toward Andy and everyone else helping to develop BuddyPress. I seem to have entered the WP world at just the right time, and I’m very excited about all the possibilities. Thank you!
