ERROR: Your topic cannot be empty.

    Hello,

    I started using bbpress for our organisation but i noticed that it’s not possible to post new topics or replies from the front end of the site without bbpress showing the ERROR: Your topic cannot be empty warning.

    The topic title stays intact but the message field get’s deleted and users can’t post anything.

    On the other hand, admins can freely post via backend and the topics are then visible…could someone please try to help me resolve this issue?

    thank you.

    I have seen a couple of people mention this… That said most find that the problem is fixed with bbPress 2.3. Can you download bbPress 2.3 RC1 from here and test again, hopefully the issue is fixed for you.

    Well, the problem now is that i don’t see any forums, just the main category. I’m quite confused by this.

    This definately looks like an issue with your theme.

    Try using WordPress Twenty Eleven to ensure bbPRess works as designed and then contact the theme author to see if they can give you some tips on getting the theme to support bbPress.

    In the meantime create a WordPress page called ‘forums’ (or ‘forumi’) and add the bbPress ‘shortcode‘ `[bbp-forum-index]` to this page and this should get you going.

    Activated Twenty Eleven but the forum is not showing again. Everything “worked” on this theme as far as visibility is in question untill 2.3.

    Can you activate 2011 again for five minutes and I will have a look.

    Hmmm… That looks atrange to say the least….

    What other plugins are you running?

    Do you have any forums or topics alreay that you can share the link to?

    Currently I expect to see at the bare minimum an error message and ‘other stuff’ at http://www.solidarna-pula.com/forums/ & http://www.solidarna-pula.com/topics

    maybe i missed one of the files while downloading. could that cause the forum not to display?

    For starters try disabling ‘Better WP Security’ as per these two posts as it appears to cause some issues.

    If no luck disable all your other plugins and have a look at your site. If it works re-enable each plugin one by one and check the site again to see what plugins are conflicting with bbPress.

    I gave another look at the install folder and found out that i was missed a couple of files while downloading BUT the ERROR: Your topic cannot be empty still remains if i try to post something via frontend.

    Check your plugins as per my previous post…

    But alas I am out now for the night and if you have any more queries I’ll take a look tomorrow. :)

    Okay, i disabled all of them again and now it works! Heh, this is really funny because a moment ago it didn’t work with the same setting.

    Thanks Stephen, in case the issue persist i’ll give a shout here.

    To my knowledge Spam Destroyer is causing the error. Atleast in my question.

    The current version of the Spam Destroyer plugin is not compatible with bbPress. I have prepared a beta version which seems to work well though. It doesn’t stop huge amounts of spam but I’m using it myself and it seems to be blocking about 99% of it.
