css problems for subscribers when updating from Version 2.3.2 to (2.4 or 2.5)

    @ozgurpolat

    Hi,

    I have a bbpress Version 2.3.2 installation that works fine but if I upgrade to Version 2.4 or 2.5, the css breaks for subscribers and only for child forums. What I mean is if I have a parent forum and create a child forum, when a subscriber visits the child forum, css doesn’t display properly, but if the user is admin, there is no problem. Not sure how to fix it.

    Thanks

  • Are you hosting this yourself on Windows?

    If so we have a patch for bbPress 2.5.1 here

    http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2481

    We have had no known issues of this for bbPress 2.4

    Who is your webhost provider and/or what software package and version are you using locally? eg. XAMPP 1.8.3

    Hi @netweb, Thanks for the quick reply. My host is MediaTemple DV. I think they use nginx. I will find out about the versions and post it here as soon as I can. Locally I use windows 7, and google chrome browser.

    Thanks for the reply, MediaTemple DV should not be a problem and I won’t need the other info.

    Can you try this for me please :) Download the following file and save it to your PC.

    http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/export/5210/branches/2.5/includes/core/template-functions.php

    With an FTP program upload it to your web host in this folder /public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/core

    Does this fix the issue for you in either bbPress 2.4 or 2.5 (Preferably 2.5)?

    Hi Stephen ( @netweb ), Thanks for helping me. I tried the fix with bbpress 2.5 but it doesn’t seem to be working. The strange thing is if I login as admin, there is no problem. :). I have to go back to version 2.3.2 for now but I will set up a test site with the same problem and give you admin/ subscriber access. maybe it would help you better to see the problem. I will do this on the weekend.

    Best regards

    Hi Stephen ( @netweb ), I spent my whole sunday afternoon setting up two test sites where in one of them (http://kooksjournal.net/forums/) I have bbpress 2.5 and in the other one (http://kooksjournal.com/forums/) I have bbpress 2.3.2 installed. I created two users for bothsites.

    “guest” user is a subscriber, “test” user is the admin. they both have the same password “welcome”

    if you login as “guest” user and visit this forum: http://kooksjournal.net/forums/forum/science-technology/welcome-to-the-science-technology-forum/

    you will see that the css is broken, but if you login as admin “test” you will see that the page displays normally.

    if you do the same for this forum: http://kooksjournal.com/forums/forum/science-technology/welcome-to-the-science-technology-forum/

    you will see that there is no css problem for both “guest” and the “test” user. I hope this helps.

    Update: It seems my Mediatemple DV server is not able to handle additional sites, CPU usage went trough the roof at 800%. I need to setup this sites again. I am sorry.

    Hi Stephen ( @netweb ), Sorry for the late reply, I changed my host recently from meditemple to wpengine and it took a while to learn about wpengine platform The same issue is happening in my new test site:

    If you go here and login as “guest” user you will see the problem, the same link shows fine when the user is “test” which is the administrator of this site: http://megm.wpengine.com/forums/forum/magazine-articles/july-december-2013/

    This link show fine for both users:

    http://megm.wpengine.com/forums/forum/magazine-articles/

    “guest” user is a subscriber, “test” user is the admin. they both have the same password “welcome”

    Thanks for looking at this.

    Kind regards

    I just read this http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/bbpress-user-profile-page-problem/

    Whatever the issue was with your theme that you had the issue with in July and fixed in August is back. As you stated in that thread bbPress works fine with Twenty Twelve, I am not sure what these dynamic templates are or how they work but most certainly this is your issue and not a bbPress issue.

    I would also recommend if you are going to setup a test site to test WordPress & bbPress, you don’t add all the extra plugins like BuddyPress, Members, Jetpack etc as they add more complexity to an issue you are trying to isolate, so you should remove all your plugins except bbPress.

    Hi Stephen ( @netweb ), Thank you for the quick reply, the issue you mentioned (http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/bbpress-user-profile-page-problem/) was a different problem, I had to create a page called “blog” for bbpress to work with this theme. After creating this page everything worked smoothly until I upgraded to bbpress 2.4.

    To be honest I thought that the problem was my theme, and not bbpress. BUT … this problem did not occur with my current theme until I upgraded to bbpress 2.4. It only happened when I upgraded to new version. In order to demonstrate, I replaced my theme with standard buddypress theme. I also removed all the other plug-ins you mentioned, If you log in now as the guest user you will see this css problem even with the buddypress theme.

    If you log out (s2 member is removed) and look at the same forum when logged out the css problem does not occur. Only when you log in as subscriber. (http://megm.wpengine.com/forums/forum/magazine-articles/july-december-2013/)

    Kind regards

    I was going to take a look but I can’t get logged in.

    Hi @lynqoid, guest user’s password is welcome, it should work, and to see the problem you need to login as subscriber. For the admin user I had to change the password in phpmyadmin because someone logged in and changed the admin password. if you send me an email to oscarpolat at msn.com I will send you the admin password.

    Kind regards

    This is not even a new test site as you mention above, this is still your old test site from that article I linked to above.

    Whatever previous hacks and or workarounds you have added are most likely still in place causing the issue, delete that entire site and database and start with a clean slate, install WordPress with a clean database then install bbPress.

    Hi, I moved to my new host (wpengine) only a week ago, this is new site (http://megm.wpengine.com/). I just created a few days ago. The article you found on the net is quite old and this site no longer exists. I will do a clean install.

    I am sorry but http://megm.wpengine.com/forums/topic/hello-world/ October 29, 2013 at 10:39 pm was NOT created a couple of days ago.

    You have all kinds of stuff installed on this site and that is breaking it.

    Hi I just checked the exact date I signed up with wpengine.com it is 24th November 2013. my theme has a button which says import dummy data and it imports dummy posts. But I did that before installing buddypress and bbpress. Dummy data has its own dates.

    But whatever the problem is with my installation, If I replace bbpress 2.5 with 2.3.2 the problem will be fixed.

    Hi Stephen ( @netweb ), I actually have a proper website where I have installed bbpress and it is not so easy for me to start building the site again from scratch. I have this problem and I wasn’t sure how to fix it. This is why I came to this site to ask for help. but instead I got accused of lying. Which is really disappointing. All those test sites I built was to demonstrate the problem including the one you found on the internet.

    If you are not willing to help or you don’t think the problem is important please do not respond.That’s what happens most of the time on this site anyway and it is better that way.

    it is really interesting that I never get any real help from this site. I wish I could delete my account but i cannot. But I have the freedom to leave and that’s what I am going to do.

    Regards

    Hey, I most probably could have worded things a little better, it was not meant to be a case of your not telling the truth, rather I see things contrary to what you have said, sorry about that.

    I was trying to get across the point that I was seeing other things that are more likely than not the cause of your issues, yet you beg to differ, fine, we’ll just have to agree to disagree on if you received any support in this thread or not.

    All the best then,

    Stephen
