Re: Hey Andy, this time about forums

Mornin’ wardeh! I’ve just started playing with the deep stuff. I’m gonna do some serious testing today. I can get mu and bp vars and bp functions. I just tried a couple of quick things.

My setup is to put a couple of things into bb-config.php:

$bb->WP_BB = true;
if (file_exists('../wp-blog-header.php'))
if (file_exists('../../wp-blog-header.php'))

That’s it. Well ya gotta have user integration done. Cookies and sessions no. I changed stuff around so many times I just stopped doing the session integration. It’s not important now and evidently there are still major problems when going deep and sessions, nonces, cookies.

I haven’t tried doing anything major yet. I’ve created my own little bbpressBar. Then I found this deep stuff. Gonna do it though. Some things like ‘blog authors’ wont translate to running on bbpress.

This is gonna be fun. I found two plugins that I’m gonna adapt for getting group forums running better on bbpress. hidden-forums.php and read-only-forums.php and they look like they’ll work well with what I have in mind.

I played around using get_header() and get_footer() on the bbpress side to load the mu header and footer for look-and-feel. I just dropped it. I’ve already got the forums looking and feeling kinda the way I want them.
