We’ve started making some progress in 2.6 using a custom taxonomy to map usernames to forums, but I’m not 100% convinced it’s the right way to go.
It might make a good plugin to start. I’ll see what kind of effort that takes, and report back here what I’m able to come up with.
Our navigation is custom built into the header template.
Admin > Users
* Tick the box next to your account
* Use the right-most drop-down and select “Key Master”
* Save the page
I’ll note again that under normal circumstances this should happen automatically when activating bbPress. Sorry it didn’t, and I’m curious to know any other plugins you may have installed (to see if there’s some conflict with one of them that prevented this.)
No issues posting from iPhones or iPad’s here, and I use them both quite often on up-to-date versions of iOS.
bbp_reply_author_link( array( 'sep' => '<br />', 'show_role' => true, 'size' => 100 ) );
To set a good expectation, these forums move relatively slowly. If you’re anxious about replies to this topic, tick the “Notify me” box and you’ll get an email when someone replies without the need to bump the topic.
@a42 this absolutely has NOTHING to do with Heartbleed. It’s so non-related, it’s almost inflammatory to advertise otherwise.
When you activate bbPress, you should be assigned the “Key Master” role, and redirected to the bbPress about page in your dashboard. If that’s not happening, that’s a bug, and you should assign yourself the Key Master role to have access to bbPress’s admin areas.
Unfortunately these type of features will require custom code, likely in the form of a plugin to power them, and theme changes to display them.
Change the default role of new users to be a “Contributor” and let them go to town. That way you can moderate their posts, and publish the ones you want to publish.
Both of those URL’s just show non-English text; no forums.
Seems unlikely you would receive error messages from bbpress.org. Are you able to copy them here? I primarily use Safari on a Mac, and have never experienced issues.
Could easily be done with some JS. Anyone want to try a patch?
This is likely bbPress core, unfortunately. When you post a new reply, we check the topics for freshness so we can update the tree accordingly. We’re working on a fix for the next version, but it involves moving some metadata into the posts table to improve query performance, and we want to make sure to get it right.
You should be fine. You may need to run some of the recount tools afterwards though.
bbPress does perform some elaborate queries which can make things feel slow, especially on sites with many thousands of topics and replies. Installing a caching plugin for WordPress will help, as well as any general PHP performance tuning on the server side.
That will definitely cause you some grief.
pre_get_postsis called on every posts query that fires, even non-bbPress ones.
In this case, you’re filtering every admin query and looking for a meta value that won’t exist for certain post types (like revisions, pages, posts, attachments, navigation menus, etc…)
You’ll want to target your code much more specifically than you are here, so that you’re only matching the correct query conditions for what you’re trying to accomplish. This might be hard if you’re also trying to filter sidebars and widgets, since you want something broad, but not too broad.
That’s interesting. They should definitely be getting deleted. How did you delete your topics? Admin-side, or theme-side?
That function calls
wp_get_current_user()so it might be related to the
wp_set_current_user()which overrides the global with fresh data.
It’s plausible some other plugin is loading the current user too early, or that it’s trying to initialize WordPress more than once via a subsequent call to
It’s unlikely that bbPress is directly causing this, as bbPress doesn’t do any of the above things on its own. It does however reference currently logged in user data quite liberally using WordPress’s built in API functions, so it’s not entirely impossible.
Keep us posted, and we’ll try to help out where we can.
This is the way this feature is currently designed. Hierarchical pagination is quite challenging to tackle; WordPress provides some help with this, but it wasn’t built into our first pass, and no work has gone into improving it since.
I have never seen any response from the devs/leaders of the bbpress team themselves, seems only volunteers
I have a few thousand replies that hopefully help prove otherwise, and sorry that your experience so far hasn’t lived up to that. Know that there’s a staff of about 12 of us that volunteer our time to both develop the software, write the documentation, and moderate the forums, and though we don’t hit every topic, we try to help out where we can.
bbp_kses_allowed_tags()function ensures that
citeattribute of the
blockquotetag is allowed, but not the actual
Users with the Keymaster role are allowed to bypass these rules, and can post literally anything they want, completely unrestricted.

Sounds like you have some other plugin installed that’s wrongfully blocking access to the “Forum” post type. Do you at least see the three top level menu items for Forums, Topics, and Replies?
I’d love to review what you have, and help get it into bbPress core properly.
Can you attach your progress to this trac ticket: https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/459
It’s a feature we’ve talked about in some fashion for the past… oh… 7 years or so.
I’ll caution you not to conflate “roles” with “ranks.” A “Role” provides specific capabilities on the site (and in the forums) where as a “Rank” is a visual indicator of some kind of importance on the site.
Sometimes these are the same; usually they are different. I bet there’s value in having a separate “Rank” plugin for bbPress to help visually group users together into level of importance that don’t dictate the scope of permissions users have within the forums.
Odd. Could be a bug in several different places, but bbPress does use BuddyPress’s
bp_core_current_time()function before calling
I’d start your trouble shooting there, and see what time is being calculated.
