bbPress.org Updated to 2.1
Finally… There are a few bits and bobs to work out, but we should have things polished to a fine gloss here shortly.
New topics and replies are disabled while I situate a few things. Thanks everyone for your patience!
You are now able to create now topics and replies.

Small bug: The links to Simple Setup / Fully Integrated / Multisite Forums on the frontpage seem to be pointing to the wrong place.
Thanks. I put some pages in place now. Need to write some copy next…
Few biggish things to do:
* Migrate Codex
* Redirect Legacy Plugins
* Blog Sidebar and Comments
Nice, I like it! Especially the CSS buttons. Currently updating one of my forums to 2.1 – looking good.
As for those CSS buttons, some of them could use a cursor:pointer, search button on the left for instance. Minor stuff, but still
Sweet, very snazzy looking. Glad to see bbPress.org finally using the plugin!
Did you know that JJJ is also a great acronym to describe this?
Joie de vivre
Looks great! On the forums main page though it says “Forums” at the top instead of “Latest Topics”.
Some “could be nice”s:
Frontpage: I think the 1-3 latest blog posts ought to be shown prominently somewhere on the front page.
Forum: Have you considered using the excellent WP Markdown plugin for this forum? I find it to be a really clever, future-proof alternative to bbcode.

I seem to be having trouble posting code to the forum, it wants to cut off the first part of it. Anyone else having issues or is this me doing something wrong?
Nice job on the upgrade JJJ!
I like the new look of the site and forums, and I agree with Erlend to include the latest blogpost on the frontpage.
It’s kinda funny that I actually prefer markdown over TinyMCE. Think that is a habit I got from github
Looks good, feels snappier too for some reason…
Might want to make your, Create New Topic link into a more prominent button. I’m probably a retard, but I couldn’t find, just wasn’t seeing it on the page! Ended up having to type in the URL for the new topic page manually…
Great work!! Is there a recent translation for Arabic version WP?
Thanks for Markdown!
Got some more:
- Could really use a forum-wide search. So far it seems we only have board-wide (that’s what I prefer to call a single forum) and topic-wide.
- Breadcrumbs would be nice in my opinion, but it’s a preference thing.
- The tag cloud is so massive I don’t even dare look at it. It’d be interesting to track the amount of clicks those tags get. What purpose does the tag-cloud serve?
> @ziadmasry: Great work!! Is there a recent translation for Arabic version WP?
You can see the current status of bbPress translations here:
(Arabic has 132 of 842 translations, though all additional contributions would be welcome :))
Please see this post How do I change the language? (We will add this to the docs in the near future.)
That post has instructions for Spanish, its the same process except you substitute ES (Spanish) for AR (Arabic) where applicable, it’s an identical process for bbPress as it is for WordPress itself.
I like Markdown, though cutting & pasting the above text/reply crashed Safari on the iPad twice.
Reproduce Steps: start a reply, I’m using this post itself for an idea on size, it is now so slow and I can’t type or delete text faster than one character a second.
Forum Wide Search
See Trac Ticket #1575 http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1575
The code in #1575 is a WP plugin ‘Search bbPress’ though it needs an update for bbPress 2.1 (remove old widget typo bug code and whatever else may need updating)
Ideally getting #1575 closed and built into bbPress would be the ideal scenario
Breadcrumbs & Tags
These are features available in the bbPress software, as such I think they should be used here at bbPress.org/forums to help showcase the features of bbPress. As for the actual user experience/implementation of said features, ideas on how you use them and how they could be best used here would be great.
(~typing at only one character per second here, there is some performance issue with Markdown going on here or at least on iPad Safari)
Feedback should be directed towards the WP-Markdown support forum.
wpmudev.org has got a very elegant forum search set up on their site, including an alternative Google search. Maybe they’ll share the code. I’ll refer them to this thread and try get a conversation going.
Re: Breadcrumbs & Tags
Agreed, I’ll do some mockups.
