    Odd. Could be a bug in several different places, but bbPress does use BuddyPress’s bp_core_current_time() function before calling bp_activity_add() in BBP_BuddyPress_Activity::record_activity().

    I’d start your trouble shooting there, and see what time is being calculated.

    It is! Just turn it on in your forum’s settings, set the depth you’d like, and you’re done.

    Both editor.js and bbpress.css are loaded similarly, as well as other scripts and styles in certain situations (single forums/topics, and when editing your password). Are any other SSL errors present, or is it just bbPress? What version of bbPress are you using?

    Without deeper investigation, I’m unsure how this is possible when using core functions and templates. bbp_enqueue_style() calls content_url() which uses set_url_scheme() which is the WordPress core function for correctly determining the http/https/relative scheme for every link on the site. This means it’s difficult for one to be wrong, and another to be right.

    You’ll want to filter the output of bbp_get_time_since; it’s the function responsible for humanizing timestamps. You’ll probably want to perform a string replacement starting at the comma, and append your own ‘ago’ at the end.

    That doesn’t seem right. bbp_new_forum will only fire when forums are created outside of wp-admin, like in a BuddyPress Group Forum. If you want to add meta when any new forum is created, you’ll likely need to hook into WordPress’s wp_insert_post action, instead.


    John James Jacoby

    Add this in a custom plugin or the functions.php of your active theme:

    add_filter( 'bbp_allow_global_access', '__return_false' );

    You’ll want to undo the edits you’ve made to bbPress’s files, also.

    I’m not seeing any problems here. The topic counts are correct, and the breadcrumbs for each topic I’ve viewed appear to be correct.

    Can you link us to a topic that you feel like is appearing in the wrong place, along with a link to it appearing in the wrong forum?


    John James Jacoby

    Awesome. Yeah, there’s just a little bit of adaptation that’s needed to make the two play nicely together. Happy you got it sorted.

    I suspect Pippin would be the one to contact for this?

    Exactly correct.

    There are a few plugins that jumpstart WordPress’s roles and capabilities, which can cause permissions issues with bbPress (and any other plugin that relies on roles and capabilities.) These plugins are __doing_it_wrong() in the conventional sense, and there’s not much bbPress can do about that other than throw debug notices when WP_DEBUG is turned on.


    John James Jacoby

    It looks to me like bbPress isn’t finding its default CSS. You could try reinstalling bbPress; it’s possible you have an incomplete installation, with only some non-essential assets were caught missing.

    Otherwise, it could be a plugin conflict, or some other code might just be getting in the way of bbPress’s CSS loading. You could also try deactivating plugins one at a time, and seeing if something new you’ve added recently is causing this to happen.


    John James Jacoby

    Sounds to be like qTranslate is accidentally stomping out bbPress’s top level menu locations. WordPress’s code in regards to navigation has a tendency to be pretty fickle in this regard.

    bbPress even takes measures to try and avoid this from happening on its own, but it looks like it’s still not enough anymore.

    We’ll see if there’s anything we can do on our end to avoid any of these kinds of menu collisions again. If so, improvements will come in a future version of bbPress.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    The most likely culprit is another plugin causing a conflict. If you’re an admin already, activating bbPress, it forces your forum role to Keymaster so you’re able to administrate the forums completely.

    If you can report back any progress, we’ll be around to help.

    Best of luck!

    Sure did; thanks. I ways able to create an account easily enough, but it looks like logins are completely broken on your site; they do not even work through WordPress’s traditional wp-login.php directly (which is what bbPress sends login data to.)

    Something else is wrong, outside of bbPress, though it’s difficult to troubleshoot on this end. It might be the case-sensitive URL (with “Install” in there) or it could be any other server config, plugin, theme, or random cookie issue.

    Sorry I can’t be much more help, but hopefully this helps you sniff it out.

    No sweat, and happy to help. Looks like the link to your forums is bad. Can you verify the URL and link us again?

    A few things to check:

    • Is the plugin active?
    • Are you calling the function correctly (named correctly, etc…)?
    • Cherry picking functions and putting them in your functions.php file can be tedious, since you’re stuck supporting all your own new code rather than letting the plugin do the work. Are you sure you’re comfortable with this?
    • If the function says it’s undefined, it means whatever file you’re putting that code in, isn’t loading. Why not?

    You’ll likely have better results if you filter the results of bbp_after_get_topic_admin_links_parse_args like so:

    /**
     * Replace the individual link calls with your own functions
     */
    function foo( $args = array() ) {
    
        $args['links'] = array(
            'edit'  => bbp_get_topic_edit_link ( $args ),
            'close' => bbp_get_topic_close_link( $args ),
            'stick' => bbp_get_topic_stick_link( $args ),
            'merge' => bbp_get_topic_merge_link( $args ),
            'trash' => bbp_get_topic_trash_link( $args ),
            'spam'  => bbp_get_topic_spam_link ( $args ),
            'reply' => bbp_get_topic_reply_link( $args )
        );
    
        return $args;
    }
    add_filter( 'bbp_after_get_topic_admin_links_parse_args', 'foo' );

    Keep in mind that each link function accepts its own parameters (including the ability to change the text to anything you want) so you can either pass new parameters, or filter each link and adjust them. This way you can just filter bbPress’s core functionality rather than rewrite everything on your own

    Integrating BuddyPress and bbPress should be a breeze. One thing to keep in mind however, is that bbPress user profiles yield to BuddyPress’s member profiles. This could be overridden with a plugin, but is the default experience when integrating them together.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    By default, closed topics get a greyed out text color. You can override this with some CSS tweaks that target it specifically. Something like:

    #bbpress-forums .status-closed,
    #bbpress-forums .status-closed a {
        color: red;
    }

    Maybe this is already obvious, but if you’re already logged in, those pages aren’t going to work for you; bbPress will either show a message, or redirect away from them, depending on what you’re setup is.

    The login page here is a (much more complicated) version of what is already in bbPress core, using a WordPress Page and the shortcode. (It’s only complex because of shared logins and integration with WordPress.org, Trac, BuddyPress.org, etc…) Meaning, it can’t be broken for you, because if you’re only using bbPress’s method and shortcodes, it’s exactly what’s also working here.

    We’ve considered a few different ways of auto-creating the login/register/lost-password pages (and maybe there are some improvements we can make in this regard) however we haven’t settled on a solution we feel works for the 80% of users that want the out-of-the-box experience, that also doesn’t conflict with existing WordPress registration plugins.

    If you could describe what you think the ultimate experience would be, we’re all ears. :)

    BuddyPress’s PMs are an okay solution for most people, the only problem being that most people will need to use BuddyPress’s profiles as a means for interacting with the UI. A custom one could be built to integrate directly with bbPress’s profiles instead, but I don’t think most users will want to go that route.

    I spent a few hours this weekend cleaning up the themes that power BuddyPress.org, bbPress.org, and the shared styling between the codexes, Trac’s, etc… We’ll be open sourcing all of both of those sites very soon.

    You’ll (hopefully) be surprised how few modifications are made to the default styling, and how little markup and CSS there is. :)

    How did you check? How do you know? What exactly is slow?

    The documentation was wrong. Moderators cannot create/modify forums.

    I’ve updated the documentation to match what each role can do.
