bbpress and buddypress forum integration plugin fatal error

  • Ehegwer


    Using some cutting edge stuff (currently):

    WordPress MU 2.7.1

    bbPress version 1.0-rc-1

    BuddyPress Support Plugin 1.0-RC1

    When I navigate over to and try to enable the buddypress integration plugin (installed in my-plugins) I get a fatal Error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare for_buddypress_strip_tags() (previously declared in /home/demo/public_html/ in /home/demo/public_html/ on line 31

    Any ideas or other places to download an older version?

    BuddyPress Support Plugin 1.0-RC1

    If you are truly using BuddyPress 1.0-RC1, then that is your issue. There have been many bugs fixes and improvements since RC1. It’s time to upgrade to the 1.0 public release and try the process again.

    Since RC2, BuddyPress is a single plugin that resides in /wp-content/plugins/. Make sure you follow these revised Installation procedures very carefully.

    From what I can see, the latest BuddyPress Support Plugin for bbpress is still version 1.0-RC1, even in BuddyPress 1.0 (or at least its marked that way).

    There is no BuddyPress Support Plugin 1.0.

    Nice catch! You’re correct. The BuddyPress Support Plugin is still versioned as 1.0-RC1.

    I’m use to thinking in terms of file names. In this particular case, buddypress-enable.php. So, I incorrectly made a wrong assumption.


    Make sure that you carefully read the installation-readme.txt file included in /buddypress/bp-forums/ folder.

    You state that your:

    buddypress integration plugin [is] (installed in my-plugins)

    This is not the proper location. See Step 6 of installation-readme.txt:

    In the bp-forums component there is a /bbpress-plugins/ folder. Copy the ‘buddypress-enable.php’ plugin file from that folder into your bbpress plugins folder (eg domain/bbpress/bb-plugins/)



    So is there going to be a version that works with the current build of BP?

    Is there any way to get it to work in the meantime?

    This stuff works just fine people. Do you have that plugin in my-plugins as well as bb-plugins? It’s trying to run twice for some reason.

    Once we’ve got a “stable” bbPress 1.0, I’ve got a stable step by step integration process. :)

    RC2 is looking pretty good so far so shan’t be long now!
