In reply to: bbPress 2.0 – Theme Compatibility
Hello everyone and good morning.
Has anyone been able to get bbpress to with the hybrid theme?
On the Hybrid Forum were discussing BBpress and how I could not get it to work on the Hybrid Theme, when one of the members said it worked on his without having to go the custom route. This is what he stated:
‘ “All you have to do to get bbPress active on a Hybrid theme is activate bbPress 2.0 via the plugin repository, then create new page called forum or whatnot via the normal page editor. In the editor, just enter a couple of shortcodes, similar to this:
some content to separate forums
This will show your main forums and also a recent topics list. You can also use other shortcodes built in to bbPress for different functionality.
The only thing I had to change was the overall table width of the forum, which easy enough to target with the Chrome web developer tools.”
I unfortunately was not able to get this to work.
I am just curious if anyone has been able to get bbpress to work on the Hybrid Theme without any customization. I am a video editor and motion graphics artist, so coding is not my forte.
Thank you for any help.
I am not doing my own hosting.
Hello, I played with all the permissions and I still can not see the plugin, in case anyone had any other ideas.
I am using the Hybrid Theme.
@Driz: Which folder? What should the permissions be set at ?
@ Rich: All the other plug-ins show up fine.
@ CitizenKieth: I am using cyberduck for my uploads, I never had a problem like this before.
I have also tried to install bbpress on 3 other wordpress websites of mine and it does not show either, they are all on the same hosting company, and they all have the latest wordpress.
Rich, The site is hosted.
LPH, I do not see the plugin in the plugin admin panel.
I can not see a template for bbpress, because it can not be activated since I can not see it.
I moved the theme bbp-twentyten to the wp-content/themes and it tells me the themes is broken or missing parts.
I did three different way, I loaded the plugin folder to plugins and renamed that folder on the FTP, I renamed it my finder and dropped it in the FTP and I just dragged the content folder ‘plugins’ into a blank folder named ‘bbpress’ neither way worked.
Hello, here is the update in order, I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress, re-added the plugin, switched to twenty-ten theme, deactivated all of my plugins and the bbpress plugin still does not show up.
I also de-activated all of the plug-ins to be sure, but the bbpress plugin does not show up.
I am stumped.
Well I downloaded the zip file from here the third try with no success:
I unzipped the branches folder, I then renamed the ‘plugin’ folder to ‘bbpress’ and then uploaded the ‘bbpress’ folder to the wp-content/plugins folder and still nothing shows up in the plug-in admin
Here is the link to the test site, where I want to add the bbpress forum to:
I had buddypress running before, but I deactivated all the associated buddpress plug-ins prior to uploading bbpress.
I would really like to start playing with bbpress
Yes Mark I see the bbpress.php file and every other file that I downloaded from here :
It seems the plug-in does not show up in my Plugins-admin page.
I dropped the ‘plugin’ folder into the wp-content/plugins folder and then changed the folder named ‘plugin’ to bbpress.
Am I missing something
I am really excited to see this work!
