BBPress 0.9x | WordPress compatible forum software



As you know I’ve used wordpress as a platform for many of my sites. It makes updating and adding information so quick and easy (as well as great extensions available for it and good theme possibilities.) Anyway, I’ve wanted forum functionality on a few sites as well and so I installed bbpress v. 0.8 some time back. I was able to integrate the installs with their respective WordPress installs and share users. At one point though,l I upgraded WordPress to 2.5.1 and a few weeks later when I tried to log into the forum…. my password was rejected. At first, I suspected a security breach, but tested the login with wordpress… it worked there, but not bbpress….


So, I looked at the bbpress site and found that the 0.9 series had been released of bbpress. The good thing is that it fixed integration with wordpress. The config file for the older version was simply config.php, now it’s bb-config.php Among the things I really like is that more is configurable through the web interface. Akismet has been moved to a plugin, the key is configured in the web gui now. (You have to remove your old style config file and start fresh.) The new version looks head and shoulders higher than the last.

And yes, after the upgrade I was able to use my login again.
