    You can use the Dashboard’s menu’s to see most of that.

    If you use the default ordering of topics and posts, combined with the excerpt view, it displays the items by freshness and gives a small preview of all which happens on your forums.

    From a UX point of view, I don’t find the page with the forums very user-friendly. I’ve got a pretty high screen resolution, but I have to scroll down to see the forums which I expect to be there.

    I’d put the forums on top and the login and such at the bottom. If I want to read, I can go right ahead. If what I read interests me, I’d look for a way to sign in anyway… But the content should come first.

    Does anyone have some expertise with importing from the stand-alone bbPress? I created another topic a while back with a very detailed account of my failed attempts at importing a somewhat large forum.

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-plugin-20-rc-1-large-forum-import-failure

    There haven’t been any responses yet so I’d be grateful for anyone who might have some further ideas to try. I’d be happy to dig in and share my findings with everyone if I can get pointed in the right direction.

    @Trifon I made the change per your last.. http://jeff-foliage.com/fall-foliage-forum/ and I think your’re correct that this will make it more user friendly… Of course if anyone else has suggestions I will be happy to consider them also…

    I had a server issue and the admins were scrambling to try to figure out why is was dog sh*t slow… Well it seems to be back among the living and running nice and fast.. I hope not to many here got fed up with that…

    It’s looking good as far as I can tell… Oh! if anyone feels I have earned a +1 on the page, feel free… I’m trying to get some more traffic.. :-) aren’t we all?

    One thing that might be nice is an email when a post is made so I can follow up.. This won’t be good if the forum got real active but when I only get one a day it would be nice to see new comments…

    I’m assuming that new replies is where I should look for comments and if someone posts a new topic it will show up there.. If I had my way though I would want one page that shows both new comments/replies/topics all on one page… This I don’t seem to have with RC1 release… Unless it’s buried somewhere and I haven’t seen it..

    Just below the comment box (or new topic box for that matter), you can check whether you want to receive an email when someone posts a follup-up…

    And you can mark topics as favourites, which would be usefull when your forum grows and you want to make sure you don’t miss updates on certain topics.

    I currently only have three topics so I can follow along… I have made them all favorites… What does that achieve?

    Next I clicked subscribe.. What does that do. I tried to see if that was an RSS feed and get all comments funneled to my outlook rss reader.

    I thought having all new postings go to my outlook reader would be good… Am I correct or does the subscribe do something else?

    I posted this question on the bottom of page 27, but posting at the bottom isn’t handy: out of sight, out of love… Even I forgot about it… So I’ll post my question again:

    Does the BBpress plugin scale well, to make it also interesting for our huge BBpress 1.0 forum on http://www.onemorething.nl/community?

    2M+ posts

    60K users

    160K topics

    I wonder of this could be the general future of bbpress!

    “Where can I contribute translations

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

    I was willing to translate to Spansh, since is my mother language, and I need it. I translated a few things and realised that it didn’t work, they need to be aproved to be downloaded. Then I saw this:

    Language % Translated Untranslated Waiting

    Spanish (Spain) 0% 0 706 818

    Almost everything has been already translated, but is not aproved. I’ve been reading and it might not be perfect, since some words are still in english (for instance Topic instead of “Hilo/Tema”), but it would be great to have access to that translation. There’ll be time for future improvements, I am the first one interested.

    So, who’s in charge of it?

    Thank you.

    PD: I need it for this http://www.opes.es/ new website. I got a translation file but is not completed. I am also looking for a guide to develop a plugin using the rewrite module, since the dynamic tests are now created using ?ID=x …

    Ok, just updated ro RC2. It’s a great plugin, and it helps me a lot. There is one issue however. The feeds do not work as expected.

    Also, I cannot change my password here. I had another account here and lost my password. I requested a password change email and got a message back that I am not allowed to change it. I posted on facebook and did not get a reply to that topic. I made a new account now, but this should really be fixed.

    So now to the feeds. I can use feeds by adding a /feed to the end of the URLS, but this does not work as expected and not as it did in the Version 1:

    When subscribing to the forum feed, I would expect that I should get a feed of the posts in the forum. Instead I get a feed of the Subforums in the forum. See here:

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/ is the URL

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/feed shows me the subforums in the order of the latest entry there. I want to see all feeds however, and had that in the last version. Clicking on the link provided does not bring me to the latest post, but to the subforum, where I then have to search again for the latest post.

    Now let’s say I want to subscribe to a subforum only:

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/forum/help/ is the url

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/forum/help/feed does not show me the lower subforums or the topics. Its simply empty.

    So let’s go to a forum that has no subforums, but posts in it:

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/forum/help/access-user-rights-etc/ is the url

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/forum/help/access-user-rights-etc/feed/ is empty too!

    So as a last resort, I want to subscribe to one single topic:

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/topic/conection-issues/ is the url

    http://minecraft.uncovery.net/forums/topic/conection-issues/feed/ works normally. The others do not however.

    As an admin I need to know about the new topics posted and AFAIK the feeds are the best and intended way to do so. Please please fix this!

    If you want to show the comments author profile link, use this:

    `<?php if ($comment->user_id ) {
    $user=get_userdata($comment->user_id);
    echo '<span class="forumauthor"> <a href="link-to-profile-without-username/'.$user->user_nicename.'">Profil</a></span>';
    } ?>`

    @ratsoid2 I put your code (minus the xxxx) into a page and previewed it but all I get is the code on the page.. If I’m supposed to change out the username or other info then you will have to tell us to do that also…

    Also what is the comment profile link? Is this my admin profile? or my comments? I would find this not very interesting…

    I’m more interested in the guy’s feeds above to get info on who has been creating topics and the info in those feeds…

    I’ve only got a few users so far and I can keep up with things but if it gets busy I’m going to want to see a control shell that shows the info as it happens in the forum.
