bbPress is forum software made by the creators of WordPress. It’s simple and lightweight. It powers Theme Lab’s support forums. I was working on a bbPress theme the other day, and thought it might be a good idea to offer matching bbPress themes to go along with some of the WordPress themes here at Theme
It was announced a few days ago that bbPress would be releasing a series of 1.0 alpha versions. These versions will be compatible with WordPress 2.6 and above, which is good news for me. I took this opportunity to upgrade my own forums after sitting dormant for nearly a month after upgrading to WordPress 2.6.
Some of you who frequent Theme Lab’s support forums may have noticed you aren’t able to login anymore. Why is this? WordPress 2.6 – that’s why. The cookie changes between 2.5.1 and 2.6 are so “radical” they render the WordPress-bbPress integration useless. When is the bbPress update coming? Apparently, not any time soon.

This is something that has been bothering me for the longest time. My bbPress forum installation which I use for theme support, among other things, was returning 404 errors in headers. These forums were integrated into my WordPress installation here so I could have the same layout, etc. Google Webmaster tools kept reporting 404 errors
