It seems like only yesterday that 2.6.0 was released, and depending on where you live that might actually be true! 🗓

bbPress 2.6.1 fixes a few small (but very annoying bugs) that warranted some immediate attention:

  • One was causing subforums not to be listed underneath their parents anymore.
  • Another was causing styling issues for a few of the themes that come bundled with WordPress itself.
  • The last one was causing issues with posting content within WordPress Admin, because of incompatibility with a few plugins that were interacting with the REST API in admin area pages in fun ways that we hadn’t anticipated yet.

Thanks to the quick reporting of stevehammatt and pdvwp, we were able to identify all of these problems and get them into bbPress 2.6.1 right away. You both rock! 👏

One bug still remains that we could use your help with, that is affecting sites that have a custom bbpress.css file in their theme. If you need to fix this ASAP, you can rename it to bbpress.min.css temporarily. If you’re able to chime into this topic in the forums, that would be super helpful!

If you have a few moments, the great Justin Tadlock from WPTavern asked me a few questions about bbPress 2.6, so consider giving it a read.

Lastly, thank you everyone for the positive comments and responses to seeing bbPress 2.6 finally happen. It made my day, and I really appreciate it. 💚
