Unable to login to BBPress admin

  • bpfan



    I am using WPMU v2.7.1, BuddyPress v1.0 and BBPress v0.9.0.4.

    Everything works fine except that when I attempt to login to BBPress as admin I get redirected back to the main BBPress page. I set up all the integration stuff a long time ago, edited the bb-config file and added the “required” code, set up my key, etc and I had this issue solved awhile back but then when I went from BP RC2 to v1.0, somehow I lost the ability to login into BBPress’s admin.

    I’ve searched until I was blue in the face and am at my wit’s end. The last time this happened, I was able to fix it easily but I can’t remember HOW I fixed it now. Can anyone give me some advice please?.

    Thanks so much!.

    This is a cookie integration issue with bbPress. You should be using bbPress 1.0 Alpha 6 for the easiest login integration.

    Basically WordPress isn’t dropping the bbPress admin cookie. You need the integration plugin for WordPress to drop those cookies, if I remember correctly.



    First, thanks for the reply!.

    I’m a little weary right now and just want to wait until v1.0 of BBPress is released before I make the move you suggested. Here’s what I did (after hours of trying to remember what I did before and doing hours of research) and it worked like a charm and I can now access my BBPress admin with no problems…

    In bb-config.php between…

    /* Stop editing */


    if ( !defined(‘BB_PATH’) )

    define(‘BB_PATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

    require_once( BB_PATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );

    add the following code…

    define(‘WPPATH’, dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . ‘/’);

    require_once(WPPATH . ‘wp-config.php’);

    Worked like a charm (I’m still using the stable version of BBPress (v9.04).

    Hope this helps someone here:)
