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. :)

  • Thanks JJJ.

    I love how easy it is to understand the WP Codex.

    At this point i’m looking at this page:

    http://phpdoc.ftwr.co.uk/bbpress-plugin/

    But it’s not as easy as the WP codex.

    Thanks JJJ.

    Great link BJ, thanks!

    I also waiting for the upcoming codex by JJJ.

    I have manage to administrate a bbPress forum at http://themescommunity.com/ , but still lots of question in minds. I will compile it first then ask at ones.

    Is there any word on when bbpress will support more extensive forum like features? Ex: Image posting, youtube video posting, bbcode?

    I’m sorry if this question was already covered and I missed it. Congrats on the release and the success with the plugin thus far.

    Additional functionality will probably be left to plugins.

    Can we post a link to a beginners’ guide for creating bbPress themes at the beginning of this topic, with the rest of the FAQ links, please? It’s kind of confusing as to where to find this information. Also, I would appreciate somebody replying to me as to where to find it while I wait for it to be added to this topic…

    Congrats on the stable release! I myself have been waiting to download it until all the kinks have been worked out. Downloaded this morning, and everything is better than I expected. GREAT JOB!

    Quick question – sorry if it was already covered. I am currently using BBPress (standalone) version 1.1 and WordPress 3.2.1. I wanted to start using the BBpress plug-in. Are there any migration tools that allow an import from the standalone software to the plug-in?

    Thanks for any information!

    My website is based on static files located at the root level and later I have added WordPress blog set up in subfolder with permalink at /blog. After installing bbPress plugin, I’m not able to separate blog and forum in permalinks. I don’t know how to setup bbPress to have forum at /forum, instead of /blog/forum, which is the default setting and looks strange.

    Do you know how to setup bbPress plugin correctly to solve this issue?

    Thanks in advance!

    @monoman – If WordPress is installed in a physical folder named ‘blog’ you won’t be able to easily put bbPress in any other folder. There are advanced ways of making this work, but you’d want to hire a pro to make it go (or do some digging into moving your WP install and/or sharing user tables between installs.)

    Thanks for info!

    Actually as WordPress allows it, I installed files in physical folder domain.com/wp, while users access the blog via domain.com/blog.

    In such setup, is it possible to separate the forum from blog and access it via domain.com/forum?
