The culprit is found 🙂
It’s PMPro search settings under Memberships/Advanced Settings that has a bug, here’s the thread where it’s explained:
“the bug here is probably one that we’ve discovered in our “search filter”. The quick fix is to set the search filter to “No” on the advanced settings page (which is probably what happened when you reinstalled).
You can also change the “show excerpts” setting to “Yes” and it will show your topics again.”
I can’t say that it was something really simple, cause looking around the database and settings in the Dashboard for a couple of hours without finding anything that was related to the problem, i just killed of Paid Memberships Pro and reinstalled it.
Did i find the cause ? – No, i don’t know whether there’s a bug or something else messed it up.
So is this thread of any help ? – Don’t know, maybe, you just know to kick PMPro out and reinstall it, then it all works again.
Should you however know what the problem was or could be, then post it, cause there are so many people out there having this problem in one form or the other.
And that leads me to think that there’s something not coded as it should, i don’t know whether it’s bbPress or all the plugins that is the main issue, but if it’s all the others, then there must be a lack of information from the developers of bbPress – how else can so many plugin developer get this wrong ??
Most of the time, when reading the threads about this, it comes down to restricting access to the forums, it’s the source of the problem, and in my opinion it should be possible out-of-the-box.
If the problem re-occurres, i’ll get back 🙂
You’re absolutely right, there’s no tables called bb-something, i thought i saw them, but it was bp-something all of them.
I got a step further, it’s the Paid Memberships Pro plugin that does it, the weird thing is that i have the completely same setup on the other site, all plugins are same version, has bin updated at the same point, all settings are the same.
There’s something with the PMPro plugin, i’ll try figure it out, and then see where it takes me, what it is.
There must be a bug somewhere.
Out of nowhere, i made a post and it showed up, but creating two more didn’t.
I have checked posts and forums in the database between the two site, and now between the post that did show and the ones that didn’t, no differences at all, only ID is different.
It has to be database, there’s some setting somewhere that controls the output, and there must be a bug somewhere, cause why are so many experiencing this ?
It’s not a theme thing, it’s in all themes.
It’s also a problem with every user incl admin.
Now i have resat, i have un-installed and reinstalled bbPress, and it’s same same.
Can you tell me exactly what records in the database that belongs to bbPress, how do i sort them out from all the othere ?
I know some tables are named bb-something, but do the post have a “tell” ?
I have now tried to un-install bbPress and reinstall, nothing happened, still can’t see the posts/topics.
Anyone got any clue to this ??
Well, i found some posts in both databases, but there’s no differences in the settings, and i can’t see any differences in the forum settings as well.
Hmm, there are many differences, i have added members to the live site.
But when looking at bbPress settings, it seams that they are as should, what is the setting i’m looking for ?
Just a thought, shouldn’t resetting the forums clear all settings ?
I did that, resetting the forums, but that didn’t change a thing.
Thanks for your reply Stephen Edgar
Is there a global setting for that ?
It’s a problem everywhere, forum, group-froums, and with every member.
Thanks again 🙂
All that is checked, all plugins are the same and same versions, both WP and theme are the same and same version.
The problem exist even on twenty something themes.
Will now make csv’s and compare them.
Thanks again for your reply @Robin-W
I have had a look at the databases, but couldn’t find a difference at that moment, but i’ll export them to csv and compare them, then i’ll find every little difference.
I don’t remember whether i have had plugins installed that i have deleted again, but i know i have bin very careful about the site and tested on my sandbox. But i know that some plugins leave settings in the database that can mess things up later.
I’ll sure get back when i find out what’s causing this, so any other can try it out when they have the same missing post problem.
Thanks for your answer @Robin-W 🙂
All is tried, i found the resetting of permalinks in another thread, have also resat the forum, the plugins are the same, and all are the newest ver incl theme and WP.
It’s a global thing, it’s all users who has the problem, i read of some where the admin could see the thread/post, but other users only the replies.
The only thing i have done with the setup that’s broken now, is that i have added, renamed and deleted some of the forums that was installed with the demo content with the site.
I also haven’t altered php or css for that area yet, so i really don’t have a clue.
Both site are on servers at servage.net.
I have checked the settings, and everything is set the same.
Thanks for your reply @Robin W 🙂
I got stuck at the first part, cause when trying to start a topic i noticed that the first post of the thread does not show. I can see many have this problem, but no solution for years, can this be true ?
I have the theme setup running on two domains, the one i use for testing, the funny thing is when posting on that site, the first post of the thread is shown.
I have tried resetting bbPress, but that didn’t help, any suggestions ?
