In reply to: Merge error (too many topics?)
@netweb … the topics are fairly small, maybe 6-8 posts apiece.
One thing that I noticed a few months ago when merging is that, from the list of available topics to ‘merge’ into, it displayed *ALL* topics in a dropdown list. I have to believe that’s where the issue is coming into play. Maybe it’s the hosting provider, but even so, navigating hundreds of topics didn’t seem optimal.
Now that you’re officially on the dev side, I have a suggestion: we left the Scout.com forums (proprietary – they developed everything in-house) and the merge feature happened at the forum level with a checkbox beside each topic — so mods could batch delete topics; select 2 (or more) topics and merge them into one; they could also move the topic to a different forum.
Just an idea.
Weird, receiving a similar error when trying to merge two topics:
Merge with this topic: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in /home/content/37/9672937/html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1228
Unbelievable to me that this hasn’t been addressed yet and the problem has been going on for weeks, at least. It’s probably a huge reason why the community here is dwindling: no one can figure out how to Post and/or Reply.
(referencing the login issue)
Now that more than a few users are mentioning it, maybe the powers-at-be will give it due diligence rather than passing it off as user idiocy.
He’ll just tell you that the problem doesn’t exist.
You know, when I mentioned it the 3 other times (along with another user that had the same complaint). Or the fact that any user can go in and edit (or delete) the bbPress codex pages.
Nothing to see here, move along …
First of all,
You can drop the attitude. I work in digital marketing for a living and have done so successfully for many, many years, dealing with everything between Drupal, WP and proprietary software, and your response in this thread is easily the most unprofessional, immature, and frankly, baffling I’ve come across.
Understand that I’m under ZERO obligation to report security flaws in codex.bbpress.org to you. I DID contact you via Facebook (evidence here: http://imgur.com/gDcoOYG) out of sheer freaking goodwill. I also tried alerting you to this on the forum. Here’s the FAQ Security that you linked to: “You should also contact the plugin developer either via email (if it’s listed in the plugin source code), or by posting in the support forum on their plugin page asking how best to send them details.”
I couldn’t find your e-mail address, and brought it up here without hesitation — with that said, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the lack of response generally shown on these forums is concerning toward a security flaw. Half the time it’s littered with spam for thai prostitutes anyway. Why would I assume that the thread would even be glanced at? Hence why I used Facebook to reach out to you.
And rather than inform you of bbPress.org login issues, I could have simply chuckled and chosen another open source platform of which to host my community. Or are you so self-righteous that you think multiple users complaining of the SAME login issues are probably just “doing it wrong” ??
In the words of the great Wayne Campbell, are you mental?
Your last question “How I managed to login” is already addressed within my post and in a post I made last week. I’m glad you did your homework.
If you’re ready to have an adult, professional conversation about this, let me know. Or check your Facebook messages from YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, when I addressed them.
No idea. I posted this last week: zero response. I even messaged JJJ on Facebook. It was a couple of hours ago, but again, nothing. There’s also a major security flaw on bbPress.org’s subdomains that I messaged him about.
I’m having the same login issue on multiple browsers. It seems to be relegated to bbpress.org/forums, because if I’m browsing a topic, it shows my Avatar and the fact I’m logged in. It also provides a ‘Create New Topic’. But the moment I go to bbpress.org/forums, NOTHING works.In reply to: Linking security issue/Private topics surface
@Johnjamesjacoby … sorry, didn’t see your post till now. Added the ticket.
@jaredatch … thanks dude, I just opened up P styles which allows to copy and paste most articles from web sites.
Jared, what about allowed HTML? For example, if a user utilizes the quote plugin, it shows this:
<div class=”d4p-bbp-quote-title”>CAMING WROTE:</div>
Any ideas?In reply to: Create new topic
[bbp-topic-form] – Display the ‘New Topic’ form where you can choose from a drop down menu the forum that this topic is to be associated with.In reply to: Private messages
Add me to this list of bbPress needing the messaging functionality. We have over a thousand users and just moved from forum software built 9 years ago to bbPress, and messaging was considered a fundamental feature. Every other piece of competing forum software out there includes messaging.
I’ve been running this successful forum for close to 15 years and I’m a digital marketing manager for a living. It could be argued that I know what I’m talking about.
I fully understand that bbPress wants to keep it lean & mean, yet we have odd, little-used features built into core like Twitter & YouTube embedding. But really obvious items, like quoting, signature files and private messaging, require separate plug-ins? There’s some logical missteps in there. What’s up with Yahoo, Jabber and AIM still having fields? NO ONE USES THOSE SERVICES ANY MORE. Even dropping the Visual editor (in 2013?) in the latest release is a step back.
(A note on Avatars: Listen guys, this expectation of users to register an account with another service like Gravatr, and then return to their account with our site, is clumsy and far-fetched at best. Again, a separate plugin for Avatar? C’mon)
With that said, I switched to bbPress because I think the code is more pure and I think it has better longevity due to its affiliation with WP. It isn’t clunky and bloated. The SEO options for WP sites in general are more impressive, and there’s a wide support community – and I knew it would be intuitive and relatively painless for myself and my team.
Would love to get JJJ’s take and that of others.In reply to: Anchoring a link to the post formIn reply to: Linespacing Problems
Was this ever solved? I think it’s a Visual editor problem, and my users are complaining. In Visual, if they put proper double-spacing between paragraphs, the breaks become single
Bump … guys, I’m in the process of moving hundreds of users over to this bbPress forum, which worked fine until the upgrade and really caught us off-guard. Pretty please address if you can …
Below is a screenshot when someone goes in to EDIT a post that was made with the visual editor. In this example, I’m editing my own post as Keymaster. It’s basic HTML. Nothing fancy.
OK, here’s an update …
– A plugin was causing the linking problem. Thanks JJJ.
– The formatting/parsing continues to be a problem.
Here’s a screenshot of what happens …
Even more problems … now linking isn’t working from the Visual editor.
When I click “Add Link” in the display box, it refreshes the page with the following URL:
These features worked fine in 2.3.
Here’s an example: I just ran a bunch of test posts on a private forum, and they all parsed fine, with two exceptions.
First, the blockquote function isn’t working. It moves it forward in the Visual editor, but doesn’t parse at all.
Second, I decided to create a bulletted list, and this was the result.
<span style=”line-height: 13px;”>slkdfjsdklajf</span>
So two of the three bullets parsed, but in the top one, it didn’t parse and the code itself surfaces instead.
I need it to parse and it isn’t parsing (it will work intermittently, but when it does, if you go in to edit, it only displays the code block). Extremely frustrating and new to the latest update .
… to my knowledge, this was never a problem with 2.3. Did this last update cause all of these issues? I swear I tested the living hell out of this thing and NEVER came across these problems before.In reply to: Embed media not working?
Thanks Jared. The auto embed was solved by just using the text tab. Still have massive problems with HTML formatting in my other thread, however. Thanks ~
And yet ANOTHER problem: If you go in to EDIT a post, the edit box itself only shows the code you posted, and not the rendered HTML.
