Changing bbpress.php To Support Regular Post Tags
To add standard wp post_tag support for BBPress – Post Type – Topic… I added the following code starting about line 557 to bbpress/bbpress.php
// Topic Taxonomies
$post_type['taxonomies'] = array(
// Register Topic content type
apply_filters( 'bbp_register_topic_post_type', array(
'taxonomies' => $post_type['taxonomies'],
To get the topics to show on regular wordpress tag pages I used the snippet from Justin Tadlock edited for tag pages and post type topic.
After limited testing, everything seems to work as I wanted – bbpress topics show up on regular post_tag archive pages – as long as the tag is added to the topic from the Admin side.
Because I know enough abut wordpress to occasionally be dangerous, my questions:
1. Is this a bad idea for some reason I don’t know about?
2. Provided it’s not a terrible idea, Is there a way to future proof this hack? I tried creating a bbpress directory in my themes main directory and adding the edited bbpress.php there, but it didn’t work.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated,
