WordPress MU 2.7.1 and bbPress 1.0-RC integration problem

    Have somebody tried new bbPress 1.0-RC release?

    I’ve a problem with bbPress integration with WPMU. All installation steps going fine. I enter cookie integration fields, the same database, use default prefix’es, but nothing solves the problem.

    In 3 step of bbPress installation when I enter existing user “admin” in key master field it shows me an error – “The key master could not be created. An existing user was found with that user login.”. But even if I choose new user, forum installation ends fine but when trying to login, it redirects me to install wizard once again.

    With single install (without integration) bbPress works fine.

    1. Delete all tables created by bbPress from your database

    2. Install bbPress without integration with wordpress

    3. Login with Key Master

    4. Go to admin tab

    5. Do wordpress integration

    As I understand, after integration I can delete tables bb_users and bb_usermeta created by bbPress, because know it uses WPMU tables, am I right?

    Hmm… I have these same versions and after changing doing the cookie integration and getting everything “set up” I can no longer access the back-end of BBPress. My user is no longer the ‘key master’ or admin for BBPress.

    Let me break this down with some more detail, I really want to get this working! :-)

    Versions I’m using

    • WPMU 2.7.1
    • BuddyPress 1.0
    • bbpress-1.0-rc-1

    Steps

    I got WPMU 2.7.1 and BuddyPress 1.0 installed fine so I’ll just skip that part entirely.

    • As directed from multiple sources about integrating BBPress, I erased the Authentication Unique Keys from wp-config and then proceeded to log into the WPMU back end where it presented me with newly genereated ones for: ‘NONCE_KEY’, ‘AUTH_KEY’, AUTH_SALT, LOGGED_IN_KEY LOGGED_IN_SALT SECURE_AUTH_KEY, SECURE_AUTH_SALT
    • I created a folder named ‘forums’ (I realize that this can be named whatever I want) and put all of the files from the BBPress 1.0 RC-1 in there.
    • I went through the install steps, filling out the database info but skipping the ‘Integrate with WordPress’ steps in order to do this later in the BBPress admin panel.
    • I get that all set up and go to the BBPress admin panel where I fill out the necessary info for integration with WordPress, sharing the same database, filling out the salts which are the same ones I used in wp-config.
    • I put define(‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/domain/forums/’); into my wp-config file as directed by BBPress instructions.
    • I also made sure that the AUTH_KEY, SECURE_AUTH_KEY, and LOGGED_IN_KEY in wp-config.php matched BB_AUTH_KEY, BB_SECURE_AUTH_KEY and BB_LOGGED_IN_KEY in bb-config.php

    Now, after doing all that I headed back to the admin panel for BuddyPress and filled out the information for integration with BBPress there. Now, when I go to my BBPress forums page and log in as my admin account on BuddyPress/WPMU I am not the admin on BBPress and thus cannot access the back-end. This isn’t the only problem, although it is the main one. I also cannot get my groups on BuddyPress to generate a forum topic when I try to do so it gives an error and says that it couldn’t.

    I am going to attempt again with Trevor’s instructions but there are some fuzzy bits in there so I just want to make sure I’m attempting to do this correctly with the correct versions of WPMU, BuddyPress and BBPress. **Note that I cannot find any of the earlier Alphas on the BBPress site, so if I am using the wrong one…am I S.O.L.?

    I have the exact same as Jsonb123 has.

    When I look in my forum, I see that ‘Admin’ is ‘member’. And I’m 100% certain that I did set WP Admins to be Keymaster. How can I regain control?

    Apart from that, I’m now strugling with keeping the session alive between WP MU & bbPress. The user database is used correctly, but I can’t seem to get to work within the same session. I had it working, yesterday night… Then I thought, perhaps the issue with Admin being a member could be solved by trying it one more time… Got me some extra trouble now :(

    Hey Rbn,

    I found an awesome tutorial that utilizes the Alpha 6 version of BBPress…not the latest one since no one can seem to get it working. http://theeasybutton.com/blog/2009/04/30/integrating-buddypress-10-wpmu-and-bbpress/

    Just follow those instructions EXACTLY and you’ll get the integration up and running.

    WPMU 2.7.1, BuddyPress 1.0 (current latest), and BBPress Alpha 6 (note, Chris posted a link for this download in the above tutorial since it is unavailable on the BBPress site…at least I can’t find it there.)

    Same problem for me…I think step #3 in the integration ReadMe may need some changing…I didn’t see a dropdown option either.

    Hi Manoj…I am trying it your way, but then I don’t see the forums option part when creating a new group once I am one, and am confused…

    At

    “8. Head back to your BuddyPress installation and sign up as a new user. Once you have

    activated the new user, make a note of the username and password given.

    9. Log back into your bbPress installation as the administrator, and head back to the admin panel (/bb-admin).

    Go to the “Users” tab and look for the new user you signed up in step 8 in the list. Hit the “Edit”

    link for that user, on the end of the row.”

    I try creating a new user but it doesn’t show in bbPress…and then I am just fidgeting with settings, using the bbpress “Key Master” in the WP admin when trying to do the forums integration…does anybody know what else needs to be fidgeted manually to make it work?

    Thanks,

    Ben
