Strange problem with group forums….

  • Hello,

    I am using BP1.0.2+WPMU2.7.1+BBpress1.0.1.

    I have integrated the forums successfully with buddypress and i am able to post topics in it.

    But,when other members post a new topic,it show me as the thread starter.

    I am really confused where and what’s going wrong…

    Please help me solving this issue…

  • You missed a step. Put this line into your bb-config.php:

    $bb->bb_xmlrpc_allow_user_switching = true;

    Thanks DJ…

    I added that code in bb-config.php.

    But now,when i try to start a new topic,i get ‘There was an error posting that topic.‘ error…

    Are you using deep integration, or normal?

    I use the BBpress integration plugin….



    Hi guys, I’m having the same problems. When I do not add the $bb->bb_xmlrpc_allow_user_switching = true; line to the bb-config file it works, but just for the admin. After adding it, bbpress keeps coming up with the famous ‘There was an error posting that topic.’ notification. Since it’s dificult to debug a message like that I just can’t find out what can be wrong…I just updated the BBPress installation to 1.0.2, but I still have the same problem.

    I hope somebody can help me out, thanks :).



    ok…well I have been trying for the past couple of hours, just right after I posted this I found the solution..all new members in bbpress are ‘inactive’. The user mapping in bbpress is correct though, so I’m not sure how to fix this (except for manually changing it).
