New feature Enable threaded (nested) replies in bbpress 2.4

    bbpress: 2.4
    wp: 3.6
    theme: tried with custom and twenty thirteen, same behaviour

    Hi I was trying to use the new Core feature:

    Enable threaded (nested) replies levels deep

    However it breaks my topics pagination and shows the whole topic in a single page, is this by design or a bug? I have also tried (in a different setup) the bbpress threaded plugin which actually supports pagination + threaded replies, so I could choose that path, however, since bbpress is trying to integrate that feature I’d rather go that way.

    Thanks in advance.

    I suppose that you would want threaded(nested) replies on the same page, otherwise the conversation would be all over the place.

    Not necessarily, the bbpress threaded replies plugin breaks down the pagination taking into account the “parent” replies. Here are the plugin options:

    Enable threaded replies N levels deep

    Break replies into pages with N top level replies per page and the first/last page displayed by default
    Replies should be displayed with the older/newer replies at the top of the page

    Hi, I have the exact same problem, did you manage to fix this @estepix ?
    or did you have to use the outdated plugin Threaded Replies? :/

    I really need pagination WITH threaded replies on my bbpress forum the same way @estepix explained it. Because when a topic has over 500+ replies it is NOT conceivable to display them on the SAME page.

    Do someone have a trick to do the following?

    Enable threaded replies N levels deep

    Break replies into pages with N top level replies per page and the first/last page displayed by default
    Replies should be displayed with the older/newer replies at the top of the page

    Thank you very much for your help :)

    Hi Doremdou,

    I haven’t been able to spend much time on this matter, I still don’t want to use the outdated plugin but bbpress support is not paying attention to this thread…

    If you find out a solution please, do not hesitate to let me know.

    Regards,
    Oscar

    +1 on this.. I also want the same. 25+ nested replies are showing in one page, that’s bad.
    Hope bbpress support will release a fix for this soon.

    Hey there,

    I know I’m probably late to the party but I’ve been searching for a way to allow pagination WITH threaded replies in BBpress for the past 3 days now with no luck. The closest I got to having it work was with the BBPress Threaded Replies plugin by Jennifer Dodd but it didn’t work as expected (I think because I am using a custom loop and also some custom functions may be messing with it). Every time I activated it and tried to enable threaded replies it would remove my formatting toolbar from the text editor (which I need) and it would only show the same reply for all pages. So I decided to try and come up with a way to mimic pagination and I think I have solved my issue. I wanted to post it here for anyone else having trouble with pagination and threaded replies.

    Basically, it’s a jQuery Pagination Imitation script that hides items in a list and only shows the number you specify at a time. It also creates links that change the items being displayed to simulate different pages. I applied this to the site I am working on and it worked like a charm. The major difference with this script and actual REAL pagination is with the script, you are still having to load all the results on one page. You just hide the extras so it doesn’t look so clustered. Other than that, it does exactly what I need it for, reducing the number of replies visible at a time. Here is a link to the JSFiddle if anyone is interested. Hopefully, this will save someone some headaches.

    Just noticed something that might cause an issue. Make sure you change the inactiveCLass variable from “paged” to something else as well as in the CSS. Apparently, when BBPress paginates topics, it assigns the class “Paged” to the whole page so if it’s set to display none, you will spend hours trying to figure out why your page 2, 3, etc is blank…
