I am trying to integrate the userDB of WordPress and miniBB right now, and I had followed all the synchronization instructions provided by the miniBB author. I installed WordPress first, and then minibb. As for their options, I have set it so that only registered members can post minibb message and comment on blogs. It seemed to work nicely except for a few problems.
My problems are these:
If a user signed up to be a member through the miniBB registration process, he/she will not have the power to login through WordPress. Even though WordPress recognize the member as one of its user (the user is listed in the WordPress admin CP), it would not automatically set this user to have the privilege to access the WordPress control panel, nor commenting on the post with a nickname.
Now, I went through the mySQL database, and found that WordPress actually generates this "privilege" for the user only if the user registers through the WordPress login (under the wp_usermeta).
In my point of view, it's pretty useless to combine the two database, if the users of the mini bulletin board have no privilege to post a comment on the WordPress blog. So, can some kind guru help me out on this? Otherwise, I can only ask my user to register through WordPress.
2) I can post on the miniBB forum usually when I am not logged in (in other words, I can post when I filled out the Name and Password section that is located right before the posting box, and press the "Sign in/Post message" button.) However, I have trouble posting on my miniBB once I am logged in (both as a regular member and an admin). I don't know why that is and I would really appreciate it if someone can tell me how to fix this.
