In reply to: Any Updates on the Horizon?
I’ve found no issues in relation to WordPress 5.0
And BBPRESS continues to be stable but as an actively maintained and developed platform BBPRESS is dead.
As you have seen Version 2.6 has been in development for about 2 years and no updates have been made on the latest release candidate in over a year I think.
The only person providing any support here seems to be Robin, who I understand Is not part of the BBPRESS team but has developed a number of plugins that can help with many users issues.
Even with Bbpress scale and amount of plugin developers I still can’t believe there is no way of adding images inline in a BBpress post with the image being loaded into the WordPress media library.
Bumping this as the sentiment in the original post about the lack of progress with maintaining bbbpress as an active project seems to be even more relevant now than when this topic was made.
While somehow wordpress.org indicates the bbpress plugin was last updated a week ago, the current version 2.5.14 was released in September 2017.
The next release as far as I can tell is 2.60, for which the latest development version, rc5, was first put out for feedback 13 months ago.
it is not reasonable to call this project under active development.In reply to: Buddypress reply forms
@mentions work on my site in BBpress. You need to have the Activity function enabled in Buddypress.
array(‘post’, ‘page’, 'release')
Lines 191 and 192 of wp-content/plugins/bbpress-post-topics/index.php
In one of the topics for posts files there is a statement that defines what post types it works for.
Updated: in index.php look for
/** Only process for post types we specify */ if( !in_array( $post->post_type
and you can add your custom post types in thereIn reply to: bbPress Compitiblity issue
It’s looking more and more like IF rather than When 2.6 gets released.
BBpress Forum Redirect ties the page of content and the forum topic used for ‘Topics for posts’ together better.
This page ‘uses ‘topics for posts’ to have a BBpress forum topic instead of WordPress comments underneath the page content.
The BBPress topic for the above page also appears on it’s own in the BBpress forums, in my case at https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/forums/topic/makairo-track/
‘BBpress Forum Redirect’ provides a URL field in the forum topic admins screen to redirect the forum url to. In my case I redirect the forum url to the page url so that when the forum topic is accessed directly via the BBpress forum, the user is redirected to the content page with the forum topic underneath. You can see this in action where https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/forums/topic/makairo-track/ redirects to https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/gps-tracks-rides/north-island-tracks/makairo-track/
Without ‘BBpress Forum Redirect’ if the user accessed the forum topic the user would be able to read the forum topic but would have no visibility of the page the topic was in regard to.
For good UX you also need the plugin ‘bbPress Forum Redirect’ so that when a user accesses the forum topic directly the topic is redirected to the page with the forum topic displays underneath so that the user gets the page content and the forum posts, not just the forum posts.
That plugin suffers the same where it hasn’t been updated in a year and 3 major WP versions and needs PHP 7.x compatibility updates.
The “bbpress topics for posts” plugin does still work, I use it extensively on my site and have done for over 3 years.
I’m currently running WP 4.9.2 and whatever the latest version of BBPress is in Prod and in test I’ve just installed WP 4.9.3 and it’s looking ok under that as well.
One thing that does need doing for the plugin is to bring it up to PHP7.x compatibility.
I know this is a topic dredge but would the same code work for excluding particular forums from search results?In reply to: Hide private forum topics from public search?
@adjunkten Did you find a fix for this? I am using the same code snippets to extend my search results but now want to exclude/hide some private group forums.In reply to: How do you widen a forum when a sidebar is used
I have the same issue. It appears the Forums pages are not very responsive on larger screens. I run a 3 column theme and the forums won’t fill the available width.In reply to: bbpress topics for posts plugin
It sounds like you really need to talk to your theme developer rather than BBPress as the issue is with your theme, not BBpress or Topics for Posts.
I’ve used Topics for posts for about 3 years without any theme issuesIn reply to: How To Add “New Topic” button
This looks great, I just tried it on my forum and it works on categories but not on forums.
I’m running latest WP, BBPress, BuddyPress versions with the Brickyard theme and the code is installed in my theme’s functions.php file..

I’m having the same issue as the OP. I’m running a child theme of Twenty Twelve, with CSS customisation to give an opaque background and a different layout to the footer.
I’ll try Robkk’s reccommendation n my child theme CSS and see what happens.
I’ve got over 2 dozen plugins installed and it seems to be working fine.
Yep, I installed it last night and it worked exactly as you saad it would, thanks.
Are there any plans to incorporate this in the WordPress/BBPress plugins repository?In reply to: Forums index in the same layout as other bb software
