bbPress 2.0 – FAQ


  • John James Jacoby
    Keymaster

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Where can I download it?

    1. Your WordPress admin area

    2. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpress/

    Where do I report bugs?

    1. http://bbpress.org/forums/ (use the tag ‘bbpress-plugin’)

    2. http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org

    Where can I report a security vulnerability?

    1. http://wordpress.org/about/contact/

    2. jjj in #bbpress on freenode on IRC

    Where do support questions go?

    Use these forums the same as always, and use the tag ‘bbpress-plugin’

    Does this integrate with BuddyPress?

    bbPress 2.0 integrates with BuddyPress activity streams, profile links, and avatars. bbPress 2.0 does not yet integrate with Groups, but it also will not conflict with them. This means there are no code conflicts or errors by leaving both activated.

    Forums and topics are not showing up in my theme!

    Try resaving your permalinks.

    Is there an importer from a 1.0 installation?

    A first attempt is included, and it needs testing. That’s where you come in! :)

    Where can I contribute translations

    http://translate.wordpress.org/projects/bbpress/plugin/

    Where is the documentation?

    In the code itself right now. There’s not a lot of sense in creating documentation for pre-release software, as anything is subject to change. There will be a bbPress codex coming soon after release, so sit tight.

    Why can my admin post videos, and normal users can’t?

    Admin accounts in WordPress are granted a specific capability that enables them to post any kind of content they choose. Normal users do not have this ability, and are restricted to a specific set of HTML tags.

    What is happening to bbPress 1.x?

    It will continue to be maintained into the foreseeable future but is feature frozen, meaning no new features will get put in.

    Can the bbPress Plugin 2.0 Beta be installed without WordPress?

    No. bbPress 2.0 is strictly a plugin for WordPress.

    How can I set which users can do what things?

    You’ll want to use existing WordPress plugins if you want to customize the capabilities of your users. Start with Members or User Role Editor but be careful! It’s possible to lock yourself out of your site if you remove your own capabilities, so don’t fuss about if you’re not sure what you’re doing. :)

  • i want to help creating new “documentation” pages (“bbpress codex”), but it seems like the “docs” are not based on wiki.

    The docs are just static WordPress pages for now. We’ll switch it eventually. :)

    John, “eventually” is too long. Developers need documentation now. they need tool to make their themes compatable to bbpress. there has a to be way to edit those pages.

    I don’t think it’s too long. There are numerous long term infrastructure decisions to be made before creating an entirely new missing section of a live site. I understand your sense of urgency, but I need you to trust that it will happen when it can happen. :)

    Developers should have plenty of documentation within the bbPress code itself; it’s all properly phpDoc’ed with great examples on what the functions do and how to use them. If you’re curious how to do something, take a walk down

    Does not directly integrate with Buddypress yet, does that mean it will when the new 96% finished Buddypress drops?

    I wanna help to translate to Chinese(China), but GlotPress currently does not have this option.

    Question — Standalone or Plugin Stream?

    Q1: Does the bbPress Standalone stream have a future?

    Q2: Can the bbPress Plugin 2.0 Beta be installed as Standalone?

    Q3: Shouldn’t this information (response to the above questions) be front and centre on either the download or the installation instruction pages?

    Questions

    If the answer to previous question is the Standalone stream does have a future then is there ‘feature’ comparison chart that would serve to differentiate the state of each stream?

    I suspect that the Standalone stream will be orphaned and hence would seem to make sense to install Plugin 2.0 as either ‘plugin or standalone’.

    Interested in learning more… thanks.

    @telesoft – Lead post updated. There is no comparison chart, and nothing like that will happen until bbPress 2.0 launches.

    JJJ – thanks.

    Is there any point installing Standalone… if it is not to be continued?

    Now you didn’t say it was a dead end… but that is what I am guessig.
