bbPress 0.8.2 and FOUND_ROWS()

Published on June 21st, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

bbPress 0.8.2 introduced a new way of counting how many pages worth of information there were to display (how many pages worth of content, for example, there are to display in a user’s profile): MySQL’s FOUND_ROWS() function. It works very well for most bbPress sites. It cripples large sites.

bbPress’ time functions no longer insane

Published on February 8th, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

Timezones Historically, bbPress has dealt with time in a… shall we say “interesting” manner. Without going into technical details, bbPress constrained you, the person installing bbPress, to set it’s internal timezone to match exactly that of the server it was running on. That’s ridiculous. What if you lived in Brisbane, but your servers were held […]

Published on February 1st, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

bbPress has seen some pretty interesting development over the past weeks.

New Mailing List

Published on February 1st, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

For those of you interested in keping closer tabs on bbPress development, we now offer a new bbPress Trac Mailing List. Subscribers to this “read-only” list will receive an email every time a ticket on bbPress’ development center is changed. I tried generating an RSS feed for such changes, but my Trac-fu is pretty poor. […]

bbPress options API

Published on January 6th, 2007 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

In the previous post, I alluded to a place to store options (basically, any arbitrary data) in the database. Plugin developers shouldn’t try to access that data directly; we’ve got an API for you. bb_get_option( $option_name ) This one function grabs data from all the different places bbPress uses to store such data: hardcoded data, […]

Site Cleanup

Published on October 14th, 2006 by Matt Mullenweg

We’ve now gone around the site, swept up the corners and shined the mantel. If you visited when things first launched you’ll notice everything is tidier now. Please take a look around! The forums are already starting to buzz. I’m really excited about getting bbPress out in the public with its first public release. Michael […]

Changes afoot

Published on October 12th, 2006 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

There have been several changes at over the last couple weeks. First off, the content of this site has been updated substantially. There is now somewhat more thorough documentation, and a more fleshed out about page. Second, bbPress’ code has been made just that much more pluggable and convenient by syncing several of its […]

Published on September 11th, 2006 by Michael Adams (mdawaffe)

There have been a few template changes recently. post-form.php should no longer have <form> opening or closing tags. These tags are included by the post_form() template tag. Same for tag-form.php and tag_form(). edit_form() no longer needs any parameters. login-failed.php has been moved to login.php.
