Not sure I understand front or back end. Here’s the sequence…
1. Edit a topic in the Forum, hit submit
2. Check to forum, topic not shown
3. Go to WP dashboard and select Topics and see my topic with a Pending flag
4. Edit the topic, change Pending to Open, hit Update
5. Check the forum and the topic shows but when opened it gives the Leave/Stay error
6. Selecting Stay shows the topic accurately.
Interesting, when I edit the topic and hit Submit, the topic doesn’t show so I go to the dashboard and it shows as Pending. I edit it and the Status has changed to Pending. When I change the status to Open and Update all is fine. Somehow the status is changed to Pending upon editing.
I found one that works well, it puts a dropdown on the RHS to allow author override.
Gotcha, but, when I deleted them I assigned them to me, now I want to change it.
I don’t need to bulk-assign, one at a time would be good enough as I’ve only got a couple dozen.In reply to: [Resolved] Formatting subforum listsIn reply to: html links not working :(
It’s good to see this post as this has been driving me crazy.
Note that the button works if you type your link text into the post, highlight it and then hit the link button.
For example, THIS link was created doing it that way.In reply to: bbpress reports lots of topics but doesn't list anyIn reply to: bbPress 2.4 Now Available
Can someone point me to the update procedure? The automatic update doesn’t show on my plugin page.
Thanks, Pippin. I was coming to the same conclusion. But, don’t 99% of the bbpress community use child themes? Shouldn’t it be a bit more straightforward than dumping a bunch of files and hoping for the best? I’ve messed around with getting bbpress to work with about a dozen themes and it’s very hit or miss.
Thanks, I’ve seen that, but that seems like overkill. I am simply trying to create a child theme for the bbpress twentyten theme.
With that procedure you referenced, what happens when bbpress does an update? Do you have to copy all those files into your directory again?
Here is the contents of my child theme. Is this correct?
Theme Name: Twenty Ten bbpress Child
Description: Child theme for the Twenty Ten BBpress theme
Template: bbPress (Twenty Ten)
@import url(“../bbPress (Twenty Ten)/style.css”);
In the last line, should it read the name of the subdirectory, i.e. bbp-twentyten or the name of the actual theme, bbpress (Twenty Ten) ???
As I found out the hard way, when you just dump all the bbpress theme files into your child theme – as you recommend in step 6 – you overwrite your style.css. So, my modification to your fine tutorial is to delete or rename the style.css in the bbpress directory before dumping them in. Same goes for screenshot.jpg because if you don’t rename it, you will get a screenshot of twentyten or twentyeleven when you go to the Themes area of your dashboard.
Ok, well, I figured it out. There are two things you need to worry about when you dump the contents of the bbp-twentyten theme into your child theme folder.
1) The style.css file for bbp-twentyten will overwrite your child theme style.css and that’s the one that tells it to inherit the parent theme’s characteristics. So, what I did was to rename the bbp-twentyten style.css to style-bbpresstwentyten.css before I copied all the files in.
2) The file screenshot.png which is the image that will show on your Themes page will get overwritten too. If you don’t delete or rename that file you will be very confused when you go to the Themes page because you’ll probably be looking for a screenshot of your child theme, not of bbpress twentyten. So, again, I renamed the file in the bbpress-twentyten directory to screenshot-bbpresstwentyten.png
Hopes this helps some others.
Well, I am revisiting this and I appreciate baldg0at’s help. But, I have another question.
If after creating my child theme which has a style.css in it that inherits the characteristics of the parent theme, and then I
“Copy the files from plugins>bbpress>bbp-themes>bbp-twentyten into your child theme folder.”
Won’t I then have the style.css from the bbp-twentyten theme and not the style.css that allows the child to inherit the parent’s theme characteristics?
This is very confusing.In reply to: bbPress 2.1 – Theme Compatibility
Any updates on the status of 2.1? The way it deals with theme compatibility is great.
I installed the 2.1 beta on a test site using harnold007’s directions (I wish he’d tell us what the modifications were in steps 3 and 5!)
When I tried to change themes, or even to deactivate 2.1 I got this error. Anyone know how to fix it?
