Sub forums in bbpress 2.3 and buddypress 1.7
I just installed the latest trunk of both to continue my testing. I like a lot of the improvements, but I’ve been discovering some bugs here and there. Not sure if this is the place to post it, but here it goes.
First off, the 2 work well together now, except when you try to mix the site-wide forums with group forums. If you click on a group and look at the forum tab, it shows posts from the next group-forum or site-wide forums. What I’m attempting to do is create groups, with a top-level forum for each group, and then sub-sitewide forums underneath, which I nest using the backend bbpress admin. These sub-forums don’t have a group all their own they just belong underneath and listed in forums top of the master group they are part of. It looks like this functionality is somewhat coded into the newest branch of buddypress 1.7 and bbpress 2.3, and if fixed it would be perfect. I know there is a plugin called buddypress group hierarchy or something, but it’s not really what I’m looking for, because it assumes I want full group buddypress functionality surrounding the sub-forums. I just want more granular control over the topics on each group.
@johnjamesjacoby – hear our plea. Allow us to create sub-forums in bbpress for the top-level forum in buddypress groups. When you click on the group, the sub-forums that belong to it will show underneath. When posting to the group forum, maybe even an option to move the topic to the top level group forum or sub-forums for the user? Just a thought. Thanks for all the great work on this, it’s getting much better now.
