Problem With Deleted Thread

    The forum that I am a moderator of is currently running bbPress versoin 1.0.2.

    The problem that wwe ahve experienced is one of our moderators accidentally deleted an entire topic. Whenever we enter the admin section and go to undelete the entire topic, it just leads us to a blank page and it doesn’t ever undelete the thread.

    Is there a way to fix this or are we screwed?

    Rest assured it’s not permanently deleted (just do NOT do a recount).

    There may be a bug somewhere in the 1.0.2 api

    There are a few things you can try.

    First, if you are using permalinks, temporarily turn that feature off, it might help. Then go try undeleting it again.

    bbPress also has a “safemode” just in case a plugin is interfering.

    Temporarily try putting

    $bb->safemode=1;

    into your bb-config.php file

    Then try undeleting it again.

    (remove that line and restore permalinks afterwards)

    If all that fails, you need to have phpmyadmin or similar on your hosting.

    If you have that, you can manually go into the topics database table and change the status back to 0

    10 months ago, someone reported the same problem

    So be sure to try 1.0.3 (you should upgrade anyway).

    If that does not change things, the fix might only exist in bbPress 1.1 which is supposed to have a release candidate by the end of this month (maybe).

    Unfortunately, I do not have access to this type of stuff and the admin is pretty much afraid of doing this stuff. He’s not an expert at forum-esque technology.

    Thanks anyways.

    We’ll see if when we upgrade that ew can undelete it.
