    hi there,

    we had some difficulties integrating wp-forum so we played around with it a bit and ended up with a working forum, fully integrated BUT now we have another big problem. whatever plugin I activate while wp-forum is activated I get

    this error:


    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'name']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_forums ADD COLUMN
    name varchar(255) NOT NULL default ''

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'name']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_groups ADD COLUMN name varchar(255) NOT NULL default ''

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'text']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_posts ADD COLUMN text longtext

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'date']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_posts ADD COLUMN date datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00'

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'subject']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_posts ADD COLUMN subject varchar(255) NOT NULL default ''

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'subject']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_threads ADD COLUMN subject varchar(255) NOT NULL default ''

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'date']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_threads ADD COLUMN date datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00'

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name 'status']
    ALTER TABLE wp_1_forum_threads ADD COLUMN status varchar(20) NOT NULL default 'open'

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /var/www/web5/web/wp-includes/wp-db.php:111) in /var/www/web5/web/wp-content/plugins/wp-forum/cookie.php on line 21

    can someone familiar with php give me some hints? is this a generic error? any clues?

    Have you consulted with the plugin author?

    I am getting the same thing. Trying to activate another plugin when this one is activated it seems to want to re-install/activate again. Consequently giving MySQL dup errors.

    BTW, there are some fixes here:

    But it doesn't solve this activation issue.

    Yup. It's been mentioned on the author's website as well. No answer yet.

    That issue has been around since v1.1 as well. When ever you do anything with the plugin page, you get the errors, even when you're don't doing anything with that specific plugin.

    Rather annoying...

    To say the least.
