TalkPress and bbPress

Published on April 9th, 2009 by Sam Bauers

Many people have already noticed that Automattic has soft launched TalkPress. TalkPress was mentioned and explained some time ago in the bbPress forums, but there is no harm in restating our intentions here. It has been public for a while that Automattic was going to launch a hosted forum service based on bbPress and the […]

Two new bbPress releases

Published on January 3rd, 2009 by Sam Bauers

Today we are releasing a new version of both bbPress 0.9 and bbPress 1.0-alpha. The stable release includes a security fix to stop a potential XSS attack on login pages with Internet Explorer 6, so it is highly recommended for all users. Additionally, the release includes a significant MySQL speed-up fix for front […]

bbPress 1.0-alpha-4 released

Published on December 14th, 2008 by Sam Bauers

Hot on the heels of 1.0-alpha-3 comes 1.0-alpha-4. I’d like to say that there are significant differences between the two releases, but this is basically a bug fix release, and more specifically a release to fix one major bug! Download from the download page is now available.

bbPress 1.0-alpha-3 released

Published on December 13th, 2008 by Sam Bauers

Today bbPress 1.0-alpha-3 was made available via the download page. A couple of major improvements include new re-added support for “deep” integration and a new notification system that will report fatal errors in plugins on activation. BackPress is now also up to scratch with the code it borrows from WordPress 2.7, meaning a lot of […]

The future for bbPress

Published on January 25th, 2008 by Sam Bauers

Most of those who follow the tech-blog-o-sphere* will be aware of the recent financial news regarding Automattic, the company that more or less stewards bbPress’ production. For the rest of you here are some links that cover the story. Some people may be wondering what this news means for bbPress. Well, for a start this […]

BB_Query Class and custom bbPress views

Published on September 27th, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

With the introduction of the new BB_Query_Class in bbPress 0.8.3, the old method of adding custom “views” to bbPress has been removed. You should no longer directly manipulate the $bb_views array, nor does the bb_views hook work. To add a view, you should instead use a new function: bb_register_view(). Also available is bb_deregister_view() for removing […]

WordPress 2.3 is out

Published on September 25th, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

WordPress 2.3 is now available. I mention that because the current version of bbPress (version 0.8.2) is not compatible with WordPress 2.3 if you are loading both scripts at the same time. If you’re not loading both scripts at the same time, everything is fine. A new version of bbPress will be coming out in […]

Published on June 29th, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

bbPress has twenty or so functions that select groups of topics or posts from the database. Some of them do very specific things, and some of them do something only slightly different from another such function. Maintaining this large group of functions and keeping them all consistent was beginning to become a nuisance. Additionally, it […]
