bbPress Forum List Widget not showing after upgrade to 2.1

    @starejosel

    The bbPress Forum List Widget does not show in the side bar UNLESS I am logged into the site after the upgrade to 2.1. Presumably this is some new security setting, but I can’t find where to find it. I don’t want private forums and links to private forums to show, but I do want the other forums to be listed. Any help appreciated.

    The site is here:

    http://poetryroundup.us/whup/index.php

    The top enty in the sidebar should be the forum list.

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Are your forums private or hidden?

    My forums are a mix of both; the old behavior was that the public forums showed up and the private ones did not. Now nothing shows up.

    P.S. The old behavior was perfect.

    Actually, I believe that anyone who’s role can read private forums can see the list. I have used the members plugin to modify the author role to allow reading private forums, private topics, and private pages, and they certainly can see the list.

    Since this is now an official bug, what should I do? I am a newbie and have no experience–do I just wait, or will it be a long time, so that I should try to cook up a work around, e.g., with a static page that has the forums listed by hand.

    All advice would be much appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Martin

    There will be an update released in the not to distant future addressing these 2.1 bugs.

    The visibility of forums is/should be at the moment:

    Public – Anyone can see these forums

    Private: Only logged in registered users can see these forums

    Hidden: Only Moderators/Admins can see these forums

    As for a work around, I would suggest a static page or text widget with links to the forums you want publicly listed

    Thank you for the advice; as I want registered users to see the private forums, and public users to see only the others, I need a way to restrict the text widget for the private forum–is that possible?

    Thanks!

    Martin

    Make a static page and as you have the ‘members’ plugin you should see ‘Content Permissions’ available so protect it using that.

    NOTE: The update to 2.1.1 did not fix this bug.

    So the widget is empty for non-users?

    NOTE: The update to 2.1.1 did not fix this bug.

    It certainly should have. Try going into Tools > Forums and using the tool to recalculate private and hidden forums. If that doesn’t fix the issue for you, something else is broken fairly specific to your configuration.

    I recalculated private and hidden forums. The Forum List widget still works only when I am logged in. It should be at the top of a sidebar on the right hand side. The website is here:

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Jared,
    the widget doesn’t even show up for non-users. It works fine once you log in.

    I am happy to try to help and sort this out, but I need instructions about what I should be checking to see if this is a specific issue at my site or more general. Is there any information that I can supply?

    Thanks!

    I tweaked the widget code for what will be 2.1.2. If you can report back if it fixes your issues would be great.

    Hi I have had exactly the same problem, I updated this morning and the Widget has appeared, many thanks Guys for your efforts.

    Can you tell me how to install your tweak? I am using just the standard Admin tools, and there seems to be no automatic way to reinstall a plugin that isn’t updated.

    Sorry for being such a newbie.
