Thanks a bunch for releasing this, very interesting stuff! Will be playing around with this for sure. Best of luck with the theme review
What about assigning tag(s) to a group instead, like you do it on WPORG? Wouldn’t that be a good way to at least make it a bit more flexible while working towards the ‘multiple forums per group’ ?
Defaulting to plain-text, like bbpress.org now does, seems like a perfectly good compromise to me.
Thanks for sharing @will-brownsberger . So it’s been 3 weeks, how are you doing? There’s also a mention of a fix in that thread you linked to, but I’m not sure if it’s been applied yet.
We’re on a constant lookout for bbPress-compatible plugins to use on jmonkeyengine.org. It could really save us from a very costly hardware/hosting investment.
Thanks a lot, this is a very welcome tweak! I never did understand the point behind this “feature”. I rarely close topics because the OP shouldn’t be read at all…
Is there a way to safely override this css in my child-theme’s style.css as well, maybe by importing the bbpress.css? The problem with your method is that the change will be overwritten as soon as bbPress is updated.
When you you think images uploading problem will be fixed? I mean that default users can’t upload images now using TyniMCE editor.
I think that’s intentional for now. See this:
@ridecbrcom-1 Supporting older bbPress versions is not within our scope I’m afraid.
@johnjamesjacoby ‘least we could do!
@limitx3m nope, and it’s not likely to be made either. Votes on our forum are applied much like on reddit: some “go gold” because they shared quality content, while some might’ve just cracked a good joke. We would need a different voting system altogether (for which there are long-term plans in place) to make such a thing valuable – i.e. for our purposes, “top posts” should be the informative ones, not the funny ones, as newcomers probably wouldn’t get most of the jokes anyhow.
Here’s a real world scenario:
When we went from BuddyPress forums to bbPress, we were left with some niche “Project” forums. As opposed to our most frequented forums like “Troubleshooting” and “Development”, these forums were the only ones that actually merited group-integration back when that was the only way to create a forum.
After migrating, it would make sense to couple these forums together with their respective groups again. However, we don’t want to do that if it means changing the URLs, which would not only disturb the user experience as explained above, but also cause some trouble with our redirects.
Dangit, should’ve subscribed. That’s great news, I’ll be checking it out.
Well, Here’s a test from my nexus s. Seems to work, but it’s slow and there’s no proper text box, so I’m quickly writing outside my screen.
I tested it on bbpress.org right now (which btw is definitely not mobile-friendly overall).
Seems to work better than before now, maybe it’s got to do with the chopped down editor functionality. One big problem still is that you can’t easily highlight text for special formatting, since that’ll just zoom you out. Different interaction models like that just makes the wysiwyg tools rather redundant for mobile.
What about the other way around? I’ve run into a lot of problems with the fancy editor when I’m browsing with my mobile phone. Most elegant of all would be to default to text-editing when a mobile device is detected, but a global text-by-default would be a good start.
@yellowwinter bbPress 2, aka the “bbPress Plugin” is the future of bbPress, and I’d wager it’s quickly becoming more prevalent than bbPress 1.1 and older. Any plans on that end?
Excellent, many thanks. And by the way, I hope you agree that part of the search should be opt-out, not -in. Only the old-timers around here are gonna want to dig further back into the archives.
@JohnConners any news? I know a lot of people who’d love to know more about any new findings you might have made.
@moderators please get this spammer out of here.
Excluding older threads in the search would definitely be a very acceptable compromise.
And if you’re using bbPress in conjunction with BuddyPress, the mentions will point to BP profiles instead?

I don’t think this should be a priority for bbPress. You’re doing the right thing by “outsourcing” it. But even that might be unnecessary. Most websites would be better served by adjusting to bbPress, not the other way around.
Those strongly opposed to change should simply consider options such as SimplePress, which follows the traditional (legacy imo) style of forum structure.
Maybe the teaching route is better than the development route in this case? An instructional blog post or codex page to ease people into bbPress’ new concepts could go a long way. That’s the Git approach for instance.
Thanks for including SWNK in the examples list!
’twas my pleasure. Your forum does a very good job of being clean and readable, and you’ve clearly built a very active community around it.
NB bbPress site owners: You’ll want to follow this trac ticket to know when you can submit your bbPress-powered site to the official WordPress showcase.
Any further thoughts on my styling points?
I also made a few more edits to the examples page. The WPMU forum is apparently still running on the stand-alone bbPress, so I had to remove it (for now). Kudos to ck for making the top100 for the legacy bbPress forum.
I’m on Chrome 21, and I don’t see anything in any of the “Last Poster” fields.
