In reply to: Tags not separating
Oh, just noticed this with the new version. Space doesn’t seem to separate tags any more.
Let it be known that I am a complete tool! I’d left the WP functions include line in the config file, back from when I was trying to integrate the WP head and footer (since just duplicated them in BB). For some reason this was causing the sluggishness and problems with IE.
Doh. Nice to get to the bottom of that!In reply to: bbPress 0.8.2.1: Security Release
Just to clarify, despite the update, we need the bb-fix plugin to stop the bozo:1 thing, don’t we?
Okay, just added the php5 rule thingy to the admin dir, and set it to inherit the rest from the root just in case. Seems fine at the moment.
Well, it seems adding this to the root file causes the problems viewing in IE:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
Removing that line means I can view the forum without problems in IE, but then stops WP admin from working properly (why I added it in the first place).
Any way of stopping a child dir (the forum dir) from inheriting that rule from the parent dir, or should I just add the line to the WP admin dir .htaccess file?
Hi Trent – thanks so much for checking it out. Yes – that’s the only line in the .htaccess file:
Any ideas why some links work and others 404?
Hi Trent — just enabled slugs for the permalinks — please have a look now, thanks.
Yep, I tried the forum in IE7 on another computer last night, with permalinks off, and found it was quite quick, though I still got the odd 404 (refreshed a few times to get the page up). Can’t get permalinks/slugs to work with IE though at all.
Just upgraded to .82.1, and still have the same minor issues:
- Pretty permalinks/slugs won’t work in IE 7
- Forum sluggishness – I see ‘waiting’ for a few separate moments in my browser when I click on threads (navigating to the forum and entering forum categories is fine, but actual threads seem comparably slow). I’ve tried changing themes but I get the same results with the default themes.
- In IE 7 the bottom border of the thread title is misplaced, instead of running beneath the title it runs through the title div.
.htaccess files as stated earlier in this thread. Any assistance would be very gratefully received. Thanks.In reply to: bbPress 0.8.2
Hmm. The main site is quite large, with the front page at about 200kB or something, but loads in about 5 seconds on my 2Mb connection (much of that waiting for Digg or YouTube, it seems). But when selecting topics on the forum it takes about 5 seconds again to load, where I’d expect it to take about a second, as it does here. After all, it’s just a few kB compared to the main site.
Thanks for investigating though, pravin – very much appreciated.
Anyone? I’d be very grateful for any insight. I’d hazard a guess that the root htaccess is causing probs for bb, but as it needs to be this way for WP (and to redirect old www. traffic) is there anything I can reverse with another htaccess file in the forum subdir?
Found the problem – I had to chmod wp-blog-header so it could be executed. Oops!
So I can now call wp functions from bb. If I want bb functions in wp, do I just do a similar thing in wordpress?
Yep – that’s the guy! He very kindly did the artwork for my last CD, so in return I did some sound design for his DVD portfolio. Hopefully we’ll work together again soon.
Cool – thanks very much for the mockups – I’ll have a play and see what works best.
Aha – thanks very much chrishajer! I’ve just noticed that there’s a surplus /div in footer.php. I’ve removed it and all is now well, as far as I can tell. Though it’s strange how it only affected that one page (?!). Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
Thanks fel64 – glad you like the design of the site! The header pic was designed by a friend of mine, Patrick Ehrlund. I’m torn about the login background – it does look much better without the white background, but also more difficult to read. I might play with some font colours to get something that displays nicely over the header pic colours.
A test account? What do you mean? I’ll help if I can.
Hmm. I tried the path (it’s thrown up in the error anyway so I assume it’s the correct path!) but it’s still not working, providing me with an error.
Everything works anyway, as I built the forum theme up around the main site, but it’d be nice to know that I could call BB and WP functions if I wanted, without worrying. Oh well…
Thanks very much for the kind help though Fel64!In reply to: How to PERMANENTLY delete a post?
I’ve been wondering about this too. Some sort of ‘purge deletion cache’ button (well, I guess it’s like emptying the trash can) would be great.
Ah – thank you for the hint, that makes sense. I’ve been tinkering with the theme to try and get it to look like the original site, but I’ll try this too, adding a path rather than URL. Thanks!
