    The easiest way to do this is to make a WordPress page with the same slug as your forum root. bbPress will see that page and yield to it, letting it render instead of your forums.

    In that page’s content, use the bbp-forum-index shortcode, along with any other HTML, shortcodes, or whatever else you want there. You can get really fancy with your forum index using modifications in a child theme, custom template parts, page templates, forum archives, etc…

    This is helpful; we really want to get this fixed.

    Are y’all editing replies admin side, or theme side?

    @johnjamesjacoby

    bbPress comes with widgets and a shortcodes to help with rerouting logins and sign-ups (which are what we use here on bbpress.org), but you’ll likely want to look into other third party plugins for actually taking over and controlling the stock experience.

    • bbp-login
    • bbp-register
    • bbl-lost-pass

    Any updates here?

    Threaded replies are now built into bbPress. You can turn them on and set the nesting levels in your Forum Settings.

    What posts are these revisions for? Does some user actually have access to edit some post, and is able to click them? Have you tried logging in to your site as a non-admin, and looking around for how someone could access an ‘edit’ link to anything; maybe in the top toolbar area?

    What do you mean by “private posts”?

    bbPress doesn’t enable private topics or replies out of the box. What little support it does have, still allows for administrators to search for and see any non-trashed topics or replies.

    Are you using a third party plugin to enable this private posting functionality?

    I don’t really see this as a security vulnerability, so much as you’re using bbPress in a neat way that isn’t quite finished for your needs yet.

    If we need to add support for something that isn’t possible yet, we’re happy to do it. A little bit more information will be helpful so we can suss it out.

    For some reason, you’re using the retired version of BuddyPress’s forums, which is only used for legacy installations from over 3 years ago.

    Deactivate the Forums component in BuddyPress.

    Nothing in bbPress 2.5.3 would delete any data on its own.

    • Are you sure there are no replies in your administration dashboard?
    • Can you take a screenshot of your site, or link us?
    • Are you 100% sure updating from bbPress 2.5.2 to 2.5.3 was all that happened?

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Nothing in bbPress 2.5.3 would actually delete your replies, so you can relax a bit knowing your data is okay.

    • Are you able to see replies in your administration dashboard?
    • Can you take a screenshot of your site, or link us?
    • Are you 100% sure updating from bbPress 2.5.2 to 2.5.3 was all that happened?

    Pretty strange. You could try recounting the replies in Admin > Tools > Forums though there’s no reason they would all disappear without some outside intervention.

    Replacing your entire forum solution because of rogue CSS seems like burning down the house because you heard a mouse. Let’s try and fix the CSS before things get more complex.

    Both links look okay to me. What exactly is (or was) broken?

    The problem I see is the table name: bb_forums

    It should be running these queries on the old bb_tagged table.

    These queries are part of a relatively ancient upgrade routine, dating back to database version 220 in bb_upgrade_220(). Are you able to see what your bbPress database version was before this upgrade started?

    Use WordPress’s Importer. bbPress works just fine with it.

    The timestamps of your posts appear in chronological order, that I can see.

    I wonder if _bbp_reply_to isn’t being carried over when editing a reply. Can you get the _bbp_reply_to postmeta for each of those posts, and report back with them?

    For context, _bbp_reply_to is used for the threaded reply hierarchy instead of post_parent which already used for getting the parent topic ID.

    The HTML editor does work extremely well, as an HTML editor. If you want to enable the visual editor, a Google search should reveal this page as the top hit:

    Tried testing on your forum, but your forums disappeared while I was looking around.

    Can you try reinstalling bbPress? I can’t see any reason why get_post_type_object() would fail in any bbPress context.

    If by “post” you mean “topic” or “reply” then the search results page should be showing the password entry form in place of “topic” or “reply” content.

    If by “post” you mean a literal blog post, that’s somehow appearing within the forums search output, that doesn’t seem right and doesn’t happen in normal circumstances.

    Possibly related, when I search your site, no results appear at all.

    Within wp-admin their Forum Role is at the bottom of their profile (it’s the only place WordPress allows plugins to hook in and add anything.)

    Theme-side, within a user’s profile, there is a “User Role” section that allows any Keymaster to modify any user’s roles.

    Not exactly a bbPress problem; it’s a warning put in place to alert you that some other plugin is trying to load the current user’s information before WordPress has fully initialized (something bbPress, or any other plugin) cannot plan for or play nicely with.

    You’ll want to look through your logs, research what plugin is triggering this notice in what circumstance, and reach out to the author.

    2.4.1 was released yesterday. Update, and all should be well again.

    You could try:

    bbp_forum_class( bbp_get_forum_id(), array( 'clearfix' ) );

    The reason it doesn’t exist is because the audience for this is relatively small compared to users asking for other things. Right now, I see 3 people that need this. That’s not saying it’s trivial, but it’s non-urgent.

    The actual clean-up of this is not super straight forward, unfortunately. There is an uninstall script located in Tools > Forums that will permanently purge most data, but it doesn’t remove user roles yet.

    Open a feature request at http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org, and we’ll put in a milestone and work towards getting it in.
