New Forum Meta data

    When new forums are created, they display with an attribution to the forum creator. That is not something I want for forums; topics yes but not forums. Is this being done by bbPress or is it my theme (Genesis – News) doing it?

  • You should only see the ‘forum creator’ in the backend /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=forum

    In the ‘frontend’ eg your /forums/ page you should only see something like this:
    Forum Topics Replies Freshness
    Forum Name 0 0 No Topics

    Once the forum has topics the counts will update and ‘freshness’ will have the elapsed time and author name.

    Its showing like this:

    FORUM NAME
    by: Author Name
    Home>Forums>Forum Name

    There are no topics yet. So I take it that is not supposed to happen? How to fix?

    Are you adding forum templates to your theme? If you are, take out the lines that output author metadata. If not, then you can use forum templates in your theme and not output author metadata.

    It’s Genesis that’s doing it. It automatically adds author data to all WordPress posts. @jaredatch has a Genesis compatibility plugin to help take care of some of these known behaviors.

    Nice! Found the plugin bbPress Genesis Extend. I’ll give it a try.

    @John James Jacoby, Thanks again for that tip. I already had a similar genesis buddypress plugin smoothing out the integration. I had bbpress activated at only one subdomain on my multi-site. I determined that if I configured bbPress through Buddypress instead of as a stand-alone plugin, then I didn’t get the weirdness. However, that leads to a new question I can’t find the answer to: for bbPress sitewide forums, do I network activate (its a multi-site installation) or do I activate only at the main domain site?
