Integrating WPMu, BuddyPress, and bbPress

This is a tutorial documenting the steps I’ve been working through over the past week to integrate WPMu, BuddyPress, and bbPress. All of the applications versions I am currently using are either in beta, alpha, or taken from the trunk. So, needless to say, this tutorial will have to be updated regularly as the versions stabilize. Knowing this, I wrote this tutorial in a wiki, which I plan to update regularly as the version of each application changes. And once it’s all solid, I plan on moving it to any WordPress codex that will take it 🙂

Just about everything I document here comes from either the bbPress or BuddyPress forums. I just tried to organize the resources and instructions to help out anyone who is coming at this fresh, and needs pointers to the relevant resources such as forum threads, further tutorials, screencasts, etc. To see this insanely long tutorial, make the jump after the following link.

    I manage tho fix the problem with cookies – on logging out from the bbpress by editing bb_clear_auth_cookie like this:

    setcookie($bb->logged_in_cookie, ‘ ‘, time() – 31536000, $bb->sitecookiepath, $bb->cookiedomain);
    setcookie($bb->secure_auth_cookie, ‘ ‘, time() – 31536000, $bb->sitecookiepath, $bb->cookiedomain);
