Given you’re so knowledgeable on bbPress and I really don’t want to go making a mess after getting the forum working nicely, is there a plugin you would recommend to get the nice visual editor for post replies, instead of the default? I think my users are more visual, trying to use the default buttons will make their heads implode!
Hazzah!!! At last. Now I can tell the website company where to shove it 😉 they were going to try and charge us a fortune to develop a new custom sidebar because it wasn’t “part of their monthly retainer”.
Thanks for all the help. You’ve been great.
Back at last! It was just the .php memory. When they ‘increased’ it, they just didn’t do a good enough job of it which was why I was still having problems. It’s now currently all back up and working. I have followed your directions re: deactivating, removing and then reactivating with no effect.
I’m not sure if/what good any of this information might be to you but:
* the page I have set for the forum is “default template” and the sidebar is set as “Default sidebar” BUT no matter which page template I select, nothing changes, even if I select full width template I am still shown as having a side bar. Further, despite it showing the default sidebar as being selected, it is actually a different sidebar (called archive/post/search sidebar) which is being displayed. This is the sidebar that displays for “Category”, but not for subcategories. I can’t however find anywhere outside of .php files that set the category sidebar. So I don’t know if there is perhaps code messing up in there somewhere.
Also, should I be creating a bbPress.php file to add to the theme? I can do this, it’s a mess around as I have to get the website people to upload it for me, but if it’s going to help I can do that.
Thanks for your help Robin, sorry for the delay, but at least we’re back in to it now!
Will do! Although this is quickly becoming more trouble than it’s worth haha. This whole 500 internal server error is becoming a nightmare. The great almighty “They” (the website creator and hosting provider) determined it was a problem with exceeding the .php memory limit. So they increased the memory limit, which solved the problem… Until I reactivate any of the bbPress plugins then KA-BLOOEY the 500 error messages come back after a minute of having them reactivated.
It’s weird though, I had the forum plugins installed for a week before this problem raised it’s ugly head. So I currently have the plugins disabled (so that my website can still function for potential customers). Hopefully *crosses fingers* I will work out a way around the whole thing and get it up and running again; there was way to many groups, categories and forums to redo. I’d end up pulling my (already limited) hair out.
Cheers Robin, Will let you know the outcome if I ever get the blasted thing to work again haha.
Ah! The UK would make more sense given the time that we were discussing it. Our troubleshooting of this has came to a brief, but sudden stop. My page Is riddled with “500 internal server errors” so I’m going to have to sort that out before I can try your above suggestion.
On the positive side, I don’t think it is a plugin error related to bbPress plugins because I have deactivated the 3 bbPress plugins and the errors are still there.
Oh well I’ll try and sort out this error and then try your suggestion and let you know how it goes.
Yes. So my site has 3 set sidebars, not including bbPress sidebar when bbPress tweak is activated. These are:
I can create any page and apply any of these sidebars without issue. As soon as I use the permalink \forums and the forum is used, then no matter which sidebar I select for use on the page, nor whether I use bbPress tweak, only the default sidebar is used.
I appreciate the help and I will undertake or answer any further questions you have, but not for some time. I’m guessing you guys are based on the US but it’s pretty late here so I best be off. Look forward to nutting this out further in the morning.
