In reply to: Change theme with bbpress plug-in
bbPress 2.0 uses the same WordPress theme your site uses. You cannot separate them on a single site, but could get creative with a multisite installation.In reply to: data from bbpress plugin to bbpress standaloneIn reply to: Activating bbPress Plugins
What version of bbPress are you using. If’s it’s 2.x it uses WordPress plugins so you don’t need to create a my-plugins folder.In reply to: help! cannot get the install to work for bbpress
I want to confirm you guys downloaded a standalone version of bbPress instead of the plugin. I the version you are using 0.x, 1.x or 2.x?
Have you tried switching themes, preferably to one of the default themes, so see if it shows as expected?
I don’t think anyone is having the same problem. Is there any chance a file is missing? Have you re-uploaded the plugin and theme?In reply to: Comment Box under Reply Box
Go to /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=page, find the page, and turn off comments for that page.
My understanding is the a forum participant should be able to view hidden, but not necessarily private. Private is for groups that are created by something like BuddyPress.
Edits made to function.php will get overwritten when you upgrade, so I think using the plugin is the better route.
Creating the ticket will make JJJ take a look at it and fix it or explain it.
I beleive it’s /bbp-themes/bbp-twentyten/css/bbpress.css.
The decision was made to wait until the bbpress 2.0 was released before spending a lot of time documenting everything. Not much time has passed since 2.0 was released so there hasn’t been much time dedicated to documenting everything. If you would like to speed up the process feel free to help document.
Private is for Admins and Moderators only. I think you want to use “hidden” in place of private.
The instruction on if, where, and what sized picture is displayed in going to be someplace in your theme’s CSS file. Exactly where will depend on your theme.
Some others were reporting that emails weren’t being sent if the post was from a user that wasn’t logged in. Is this the case for you?
I suggest upgrading from the release candidate and seeing if the problem remains.In reply to: Plugin location/"Hidden Forums" not doing anything
The plugins list on the bbPress site are intended for standalone versions of bbPress (0.x and 1.x). bbPress 2.0 plugins are limited at the moment, but would be found in WordPress plugin repository.
BuddyPress is the only route I’ve gone for creating groups and having private group discussions. I’m not aware of another way to limit a forum to a group, but I assume there are other methods via plugins. I think groups in BuddyPress are easier to manage than users with access to a site.
If you already know you are going to have sites for each group there isn’t much of an advantage, if any, of doing it via BuddyPress.
The plugins at https://bbpress.org/plugins/ are not intended for bbPress 2.0. They were created for a standalone version of bbPress.
I don’t think theres a way to do it exactly how you want, but installing BuddyPress can get you close. You can create the private group forums through BuddyPress and use bbPress for the general forum.
Install bbPress 2.x plugins the same way you install WordPress plugins. There is not a separate bbPress 2.0 plugin installer/menu/etc.In reply to: bbPress 2.0, Buddypress 1.5 and Multisite
You were on the right track when you enabled bbPress solely on the 1 main site.
Enable Multisite, but you don’t have to create the other sites yet.
Install and activate Buddypress without installing or activating forums through BuddyPress.
Install and activate bbPress.
You are going to get that warning for the time being because BuddyPress 1.5 and bbPress 2.0 aren’t fully integrated yet. Better/Full integration is being worked on for BuddyPress 1.6 which is supposed to come out around the same time as WP 3.3, which just hit beta 1 and is scheduled for release at the end of November
That would probably require bbPress 2.0. You could insert a topic specific short code into the discussion tab. You’d also have a separate area that has all of the forum content, but you wouldn’t have to put a visible link to the forum anyplace.
