WPMU Enable bbPress Cabpabilities plugin

  • Robert S



    I am curious whether the above plugin is still required with WPMU 2.7, Buddypress V1.0 and bbPress V1.0 RC6 (alpha).

    Buddypress and bbPress seems to have improved the integration with WP in the more recent releases.

    I’ll be doing a new integration tomorrow with WPMU 2.7.1, BP1.0, and bbPress 1.0a6, so I’ll be able to tell you right away.

    My best guess is yes, because there still needs to be a mechanism to tell one part what the other part is thinking.



    I’ve just done an integration and there was no mention of this plugin. bbPress has a WordPress Integration section in the admin where you can map the WP user roles to the bbPress user roles.

    One thing I noticed though is that if you copy the

    define(‘COOKIE_DOMAIN’, ”);

    line to wp-config.php as the guides suggest, you loose the single sign-on between the site and your WPMu created blogs. I also saw the need to hack bb-settings.php as outlined in the comments to this blog post:

    What are your findings?

    Hi guys,

    I have followed the instructions as per the following bbpress forum post: (excellent instructions by the way)

    …and I appear to have integration (database + login both ways) – so far all seems OK.

    I’m running WPMU 2.7.1, BP1.0, and bbPress 1.0a6 and have integrated WPMU and bbPress. At this stage I’m not too worried about getting BP integrated as well – will wait until the Group/Forum features within BP improve.

    My gut feel is that both these plugins:

    *bbPress Integration

    *WPMU Enable bbPress Capabilities (0.1)

    …are no longer required (if one follows the instructions as above.

    If anyone “stumbles” across anything different I would appreciate some feedback.
