    Hello hello,

    This is my first post so sorry if i post it in the wrong place :$

    I wanted to hide my forum by default,I achieved this. Having achieved this, my question: Where in earth do I change the friendly “Oh bother! No forums were found here!” message???? Can’t find it anywhere! I am using bbpress 2.4

    Thanks in advance

  • It is in the feedback-no-forums.php template \templates\default\bbpress

    If you want to modify this template for your theme here check out the docs on theme compat.

    Sorry… Im new so i dont know where i can find feedback-no-forums.php :(

    Sorry for troubling you

    The file is located in /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default

    If you edit this file manually when you update bbPress your changes will be lost.

    The link above in my post shows the steps needed to copy this template to your own theme so you can use your own custom templates without bbPress overriding it during updates.

    Hi Stephen

    I have done the exact same thing as you suggested above.

    However it doesn’t seem to be overriding the settings?
    It still appears as “Oh Bother!” I actually tried removing this line all together but it didn’t work.

    Wordpress settings

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Hi Stephen

    I have actually gone to the plugin itself and changed the wording in the original template – and even this isn’t affecting my text on the site?

    Forum on ALMConsultants.com.au

    There are 6 feedback templates: Did you change all of them? Or more correctly the correct one?

    • feedback-logged-in.php
    • feedback-no-access.php
    • feedback-no-forums.php
    • feedback-no-replies.php
    • feedback-no-search.php
    • feedback-no-topics.php

    Hi Stephen – I followed your instructions and changed it in the feedback-no-forums.php however this has had no effect… Do I need to change it in every single one.

    Regards

    It depends on what you are trying to do do, each form has different text for different situations.

    Eg.

    • feedback-no-forums.php – “Oh bother! No forums were found here!”
    • feedback-no-replies.php – “Oh bother! No replies were found here!”
    • feedback-no-search.php – “Oh bother! No search results were found here!”
    • feedback-no-topics.php – “Oh bother! No topics were found here!”
