Yet Another BBPress Integration Question…

    I’ve read everything I can find about BP and BBPress integration before I move forward to make sure I do it right… I’m still not clear on a few things….Bare with me here….

    The trunk instructions (http://trac.buddypress.org/browser/trunk/bp-forums/installation-readme.txt) call to: ” – Leave “Add cookie integration settings” unchecked ” during installation of BBPress …… Whereas the standard BBPress / WP guides typically suggest checking this setting…. specifically’s Sam’s Video (http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/basic-integration-screencast)

    I would prefer to follow the method laid out by Sam before actually doing the BuddyPress / BBPress integration as it makes the most sense to be in terms of understanding the process but am not sure if that will get me on the wrong track….

    Any ideas or feedback?

    It actually doesn’t matter if you do it during installation or after… it turns out to be the same.

    Have you seen this article:

    http://bavatuesdays.com/integrating-wpmu-buddypress-and-bbpress/

    It was extremely helpful with my setup and includes the video you mentioned, with some additional pointers. Also read the comment section for some addtional info.

    Just make sure you have the latest versions of both and start off fresh. Follow the article I quoted and give that sigh of relief when you switch from WordPress MU to bbpress and see “Welcome admin!” on top instead of “Login”….

    Awesome, working on it now…. also, I’m assuming that you start off with a new database for BBPress and only integrate for the user tables? In step two of BBPress setup, the last checkbox is for “Show advanced database settings” and says “If your bbPress and WordPress installation do not share the same database, then you will need to add advanced settings.” ….. we don’t want to share the same database for the installs do we?

    Regarding Databases… I’m thinking that performance will be better for installs with lots of users if BBPress is kept on its own database…. let me know if my thinking is wrong here….

    You MUST share the database for them to be able to share users. bbpress will create some tables in your wordpress mu database and share the users table. If you keep separate databases, deep integration will never work.
