WPMU 1.0 and bbPress - Login Integration (3 posts)

    I am trying to get bbPress and WordpresMU to integrate. (I happen to be using MU1.0, but I doubt that that is at all related to my current problems).

    I followed the instructions linked to in many locations on this forum and the bbPress docs as well, and most everything seems to work. Except, one problem (so far)...

    Namely I am not getting shared login working. What I mean by this is that if I login on MU as user "test1" and then go to my bbPress main page, bbPress thinks I am not logged in. If I login to bbPress it uses the user info correctly so that my mu credentials are used (that's working great) but if I log out of bbPress, I don't get logged out of mu.

    To make matters more complicated, I can login as "test1" in mu and "test2" in bbPress and they don't seem to complain.. of course it's a totally confusing situation to the user.

    So I am sure this is related to cookie sharing, and I must have missed some step somewhere.

    The one thing I was confused by was the following instruction...

    In bbpress/config.php you're supposed to set wp_home and wp_siteurl, and it says to go to Options->General to get these values. Well, clearly this is a wordpress (non-MU) instruction since the General tab in MU doesn't show these values... so what should it be?

    I've tried using the full url "" to my main MU home page, but that didn't seem to work.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Try using for the cookie.

    Ok, I got things working... I am not 100% sure how I did it, I think I must have previously attempted to do the cookie integration using the old instructions, and I had messed up some of my wordpressmu settings.

    Thanks for the tip Dr. Mike, definitely changing the wp_siteurl and wp_home to not include http:// helped... But I also needed to spelunk around with firefox cookie inspector to realize what was going wrong.
