    @arturo84

    I have this question and I think there are many users have the same…

    how one can use the theme of buddypress (home / members) with bbpress?

    I intend to have the buddybar, search/login bar, logo and menu, etc.. etc, in short, just as it is here on bp.org.

    thanks to Andy or any other mod/member reply to this very useful question.

    Well, there is no step-by-step guide to do this. You are talking about three completely different environments and three separate themes. To get bbpress using a theme that looks similar to the other two themes, you need to create a new bbpress theme. You can’t just drop one of the other themes into bbpress, tweak a few things and magically have it work.

    Arturo, we aim to please and sometimes we actually succeed!

    when i try to access bb-admin i’m redirected to forum home and not in admin panel

    I’m not the best bbPress guy to help you here, but here’s my first thought: you did not log in as keymaster. When you log in on the front page as keymaster, you should see an admin link next to your name. If you don’t have that after you’re logged in, you might not be set as keymaster.

    Jeff, i’m the keymaster rights, and if i delete the require_once( ‘/path/to/wp-blog-header.php’ ); i can access to bb-admin but if i’ve it no…

    i’ve called the buddybar and search/login bar in bbpress theme and i login in login bar because i’ve the integration with WP and i’m sure i’ve the keymaster rights and in theory if i go to site.com/forums/bb-admin i can see the administration backend

    any idea? thanks!

    Trunk can be your friend!

    Did you make any changes in your theme file between using version 1.0 and upgrading to the latest trunk?

    Arturo-

    I’m literally about to leave for an evening out. So, if I can’t help you, perhaps someone else will pitch hit for me.

    but the buddybar doesn’t show

    So, it was showing before upgrading to the latest trunk? Did you make changes to any CSS files that got deleted when upgrading?

    In order to have the buddybar appear, you need to do what is called “deep integration” between the platforms. It means including WordPress and BuddyPress, inside your bbPress process.

    See this post.

    At that point, the wp_footer() will load the BuddyBar, but you will need to pull off some styling tweaks to make it all play nicely together.

    thanks for the reply JohnJJ,

    i’ve the “deep integration” indeed i’ve the search and login bar, i’ve wp_head in head and wp_footer in footer i’ve writed here (#8 post in this 3d), but the buddybar doesn’t show…

    any idea?

    another information, i’ve installed 0.9.0.4 and the buddybar with the same theme is ok, but i can’t access to bb-admin, so i’ve upgraded to rc-2 (trunk version) all works but not buddybar… thanks for help!

    I too am experiencing this problem. The buddybar was displaying fine before I upgraded from my .9 build. Now with 1.0 rc2 I’m experiencing an unusual phenomenon where my search and login/logout fields are all displaying fine, but the actual buddybar itself is not displaying.

    I think this is a glitch with the RC2 release.

    Currently, it is recommended that you stick with bbPress 1.0-alpha-6. See this thread.

    This could be a bug with bbPress 1.0-RC-2. I suggest starting a thread on the bbPress forum for this issue if one is not already started.

    FWIW, in this thread Bpfan posts a solution for the problem with BBP 0.9.0.4 where the admin is redirected to the main bbpress page on login (instead of the admin page).

    i’ve resolved the problem with wpmu 2.7.1 + bp 1.0 + bbpress 0.9.0.4 + deep integration

    i’ve followed the 3d plus i’ve installed THIS plugin, works great and now i can login in bbpress use the wp/bp theme and access in bb-admin.

    **NOTE**: i’ve used the 0.9.0.4 to have a bbpress forum like this site and NOT to use it for groups etc or with the component bp-forums.

    Arturo, the two days ago trunk of bbPress integrates perfectly. Sam is making some furious edits to the bbPress core to prepare for launch so it’s possible the trunk version may be broken or changed in some way.
