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 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?

    Hi, I have the same problem. I installed physically the WP files in /wp subfolder and blog is accessible virtually in /blog subfolder. Is it possible to similarly access forum in virtual /forum subfolder instead of /blog/forum?

    Thanks for the useful information . Do you want to translate it to Chinese ?

    Basic question: Now that everything is installed and I’ve created my first forum (Welcome), where is my forum site? I’d like to point to it in my blog menu. Thanks

    Is there any news regarding the method of installing and/or setting up the bbPress plugin to access the blog and forum separately via virtual /blog and /forum subfolders, having physically installed WordPress files in domain.com/wp subfolder?

    I have WordPress installed on my server in a directory “wordpress.” My users can access this installation by going to http://website.com/blog

    I would like to have the same effect happen for the bb-press plugin when someone accesses http://website.com/forums

    How can I set this up?

    @acoburn4 – Sadly you won’t be able to. Because all of WordPress is being rewritten to /blog, it would take some server level rewriting to make your forums work below it. Even then, I am not sure it would really work. You’ll want to make your entire site run at website.com, create two pages: /blog and /forums, then setup each the way you want them to be.

    …why the heck is it so hard to unsubscribe to e-mail notifications of replies to topics? I had to make this post just so that my unchecking of “Notify me of follow-up posts via email” will register. It won’t register unless you hit the “Send Reply” button… What the heck.

    @MTPower – Age old WordPress and bbPress UX issue. Could use some ajax to make it easier. bbPress 2.0 solves this, and when we update bbpress.org it will no longer be an issue. (You could have also used the link in the upper left, but it’s easily missed.)

    Hello!

    I want to contribute ukrainian translation. But I don’t see ukrainian language at http://translate.wordpress.org/projects/bbpress/plugin, and there is no possibility to add it.

    How to add Ukrainian to the list of translations?

    Closing. If you have a question about one of the FAQ items feel free to create a new thread. FAQ is going to hopefully be getting a nice update after 2.1 is released :)
