Hi Ray,

I’m glad you got it figured out. The reason I didn’t do this in the first place, though, is that BBDB_USER and those other global variables refer (if I’m not mistaken) to the bbPress db credentials, not the BP credentials that are necessary. If you’ve got the two installed in the same database, it’s not an issue and the globals will work. But I’m running bbPress and BP in separate DBs. $bb->user_bbdb_user and the like store the WP db info that the admin enters in the bbPress admin > WP integration settings.

So I guess all this is to say that I’m glad you got your situation figured out (I think I already said that :) ) but the very same solution might not work for all installations.

@Mike – Yes, I noticed the other day that Brent had posted the plugin, and I thought it was hilarious that we had come out with the plugins at almost the exact same time. Please feel free to pick apart my code, as I’m planning to do with your code in the near future, so that we can communicate about the best way to merge, or at least not unnecessarily duplicate work. I’ve got some ideas for making the plugin better in the future (daily digests in place of individual emails would be a big improvement but is probably pretty difficult) and we should definitely help each other!
