After reading the Station Pro Forum instructions and visiting the bbpress site I'm still struggling with the install/integration of Station Pro Forum with Station Pro Theme. Is there a step by step for dummies out there?

If station pro is anything like WH pro - the readme leaves out a few key steps. My installation is integrated between WP and BB and I have full access to both admin panels ect-but still lacking full css. What I found was that I needed to use WP plug in "bbpress integration" first. Then go into bbpress admin - integrate with wordpress from that side as well. Make sure you make yourself the "keymaster". Then follow the steps for completeing a "deep" integration with bbpress. Also, I believe it is crucial that bb use the same database as wp. I used simple scripts from my host to install both - and did wp first - got the DB access info from wp-config and used that during the install of bb to access and install using the same DB - different tables. I hope that helps - I'm no programmer myself- just and entrepreneur like many :-) Andrew has great themes- but I think bbpress is just a little less developed than wp - and there fore gives us newbies some trouble.

we'll be putting out a video tutorial for that right after the new year. On top of what Adam said, do you have any specific questions? Have you gotten BBPress to work yet?

Adam, I appreciate the time and effort but I think I'm now in the wilderness. With new questions like should I have installed the forum first then Station Pro etc I think I'll have to wait for the video or hire somebody to do it for me. As a novice I've been able to successfully navigate a host of challenges in the past with decent to premium themes but I'm stumped here. Thank you both

Guys im really struggling here need some help. Have got FTP access to my site from my web designers today was totally fed up trying to get these numb skulls to do anything so ive taken it upon myself to fix the problems. took me 10 minutes to fix my theme problems update my wordpress to the new 2.9 and get my blog back looking to how it did before which is great after going a week with a terrible looking site. Ive bought the Forum and started trying to install it. Ive downloaded BB Press and uploaded it to my site and I can access it at http://www.londonmus...com/blog/forum/ It shows me the installer and says I do not have a config.php file and now follow the instructions so I click step 1 and it says page not found its looking for install.php there is an install.php file in the bbpress admin file but it looks like the installer wants it in the mail Forum folder. Anyone got any ideas?? im gonna try adding that install file to the main forum folder and see how that goes but I woulda thought BB press was set up properly in the first place. Thanks guys, Chris

Well got miles through it. Have uploaded everything sorted it all out and now I have the Deep Integration With WordPress Required It appears your WordPress installation isn't deeply integrated which is required for StationPro Forum to work correctly (it needs access to WP functions). Please see Deep Integration With WordPress Screen. I dont know what im doing here ive tried copying and pasting the wp-config.php contents into the bb-config file but just gave me a blank screen and tried using the wp press integration plugin in wordpress and it generated a cookie code that makes no difference either............ HELP!!!! :-(

This is my bb-config.php file could you advise me as to what to do with it from here.... <?php /** * The base configurations of bbPress. * * This file has the following configurations: MySQL settings, Table Prefix, * Secret Keys and bbPress Language. You can get the MySQL settings from your * web host. * * This file is used by the installer during installation. * * @package bbPress */ // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for bbPress */ define( 'BBDB_NAME', 'londonmuscle' ); /** MySQL database username */ define( 'BBDB_USER', 'londonmuscle' ); /** MySQL database password */ define( 'BBDB_PASSWORD', '**************' ); /** MySQL hostname */ define( 'BBDB_HOST', 'localhost' ); /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */ define( 'BBDB_CHARSET', 'utf8' ); /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */ define( 'BBDB_COLLATE', '' ); /**#@+ * Authentication Unique Keys. * * Change these to different unique phrases! * You can generate these using the {@link https://api.wordpres...ey/1.1/bbpress/ WordPress.org secret-key service} * * @since 1.0 */ define( 'BB_AUTH_KEY', '***********************************' ); define( 'BB_SECURE_AUTH_KEY', '*****************************' ); define( 'BB_LOGGED_IN_KEY', '**********************************' ); define( 'BB_NONCE_KEY', '******************************' ); /**#@-*/ /** * bbPress Database Table prefix. * * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please! */ $bb_table_prefix = 'bb_'; /** * bbPress Localized Language, defaults to English. * * Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen * language must be installed to a directory called "my-languages" in the root * directory of bbPress.

Have you gotten WP integration working successfully? Once you do that you need to include the full path to your WP header. If you are unsure what this means you might want to talk to your hosting provider, who can help you out. http://www.pagelines...opic.php?id=254

Im unsure of what you mean..... I followed all the steps correctly, it made a config.php file and I did have a working forum that was all linked with my wordpress account. You could log into it using your WP login and could post etc and login as a user account and post using the WP User account. So I suppose that means yes I have WP integration working. The issue is the "Deep Integration" I dont know what this really means. The blog is hosted on my store website which I have access to via FTP so I can change add and edit anything and I have dreamweaver so I can edit the contents of the PHP file no problem I just dont know how to edit it to make it work. Do I simply open the WP-blog-header.php and copy its contents and paste it either at the top or the bottom of the code that is in the bb-config.php?

You need to just add something to bb-config like this: `require('/full/path/toWP/wp-blog-header.php');` don't add anything else. Ask your host what your full path is.. then add: The name of your WP folder, and the 'wp-blog-header.php'

just put backticks around it which is typically on the top-left of your keyboard. just add this to the bottom of your bb-config.php file. Did you try it?

Hi Andrew, Did it and I managed to get to see the login page once as soon as I clicked login it went back to the page cannot be found 404 error screen. Have just changed the code to require_once to see if that helps but doesnt appear to have done. Any ideas from here, I now do have access to the BB-admin page that works now so I am updating and building the structure of my forums up I just now need to be able to put it all together and put in my navigation bar from the blog site. Thanks for all the help and just for the record `D://am-I-Still-N00B/I-Hope-Not/`

Are you using IE or firefox? Did you get it to find the WP header? Are you getting any PHP errors?
