In reply to: Confused about HTML Meta tags & SEO
There is another SEO plugin for bbPress:
It is also rough but it does a good job altogether.In reply to: Major problem with Topic Posts
Sounds just like the problem I have. Check out this topic:In reply to: New minimalist theme available
I fixed it with the popular WP DB-Manager plugin. I just used the options “Repair DB” and then “Optimize DB”.
Here are the plugins I use which IMO might have smth to do with posting:
Post Edit Look Behind
Live Comment Preview
HTML Tag Attributes Validator
BBcode Buttons Toolbar
Post Count Plus
bbpress SEO tools
bb Topic Views

Things have been going fine for the last day so I hope it does not happen again And I’ve increased the backup frequency in case of an emergency.
Argh! It happened again…! I wonder what’s causing it? A bad plugin?
Or my not-so-good host server?
Yes, I have access to phpMyAdmin but did not really know how to fix it through there…
I managed to automagically fix it with a WP plugin that manages the DB (cause I have WP and bbPress integrated). Now I can make new posts but the links to the erroneous(missing) posts still remain and recounting does not remove them.
Anyway I think I will just use the backup DB. Just about 10-15 replies will be lost but it’s not a pain since nobody except their authors saw them because of the error.
Thanks for the help!
what do you mean by “reseting”? How to do that?

Never mind, I got a working function now.
I am also looking for that. Would you please share your solution?In reply to: Phantom “bbPress” hot tag
I recall having the same problem – resolved it by manualy delete the tag via phpMyAdminIn reply to: Plugin localization?
Yes, I can’t help but wonder why some of the most used plugins for bbPress (yeah, _ck_’s) are not localized? I looked into the code and saw that they use __() and _e() calls but lack the text domain so they can’t be translated in the usual way…
_ck_, did you hear that?? ^^
bbPress plugins altogether have poor localization – maybe the framework isn’t clear?In reply to: How do you change the Freshness of post date format?
Sam’s code works but still it displays the time in GMT rather than in my timezone. That doesn’t seem right cause it display the proper time since. How do I get that correctly?
(same thing with _ck_’s code – off the time zone and into GMT)
looking through some bbPress code I think I’ve got it right at last! The time has to be filtered through bb_offset_time, so the code should be(for post times):
echo date("date-format-goes-here", bb_offset_time(strtotime($bb_post->post_time)));
Still wonder why isn’t the time filtered when using sam’s code…
and it does not localize – the date is in English… wonder how to set that up?
a wiki-plugin already exists:
a revision tracking plugin also:
But it seems like it does much more than we basically desire.
I just tested the Edit History plugin and it does indeed track all that data – last edit, last editor and number of edits. But it does not output the message in the normal topic view. Instead it uses a separate page with all the revisions of a post. And that page is not visible to everyone.
I guess it is not hard to add that feature to the plugin. Wish I had the programming skills to do it!
No, not the wiki-post. We want to be able to output a message under any post that has been edited by its author or by a moderator. phpBB has that functionality and it prints something like:
“This post has been edited [number-of-edits] times. Last edit by [username] at [time].”
And since bbPress has the option to edit posts it will be good to have some kind of indication about edits. It’s a forum board and integrity of posts is important.
I am looking for the same things. Number 1 can be set in the admin-panel on a clean bbPress install (no need for hacking or plugin). But I would like to know how to pull the info about edits…In reply to: Override URL constant in bb-config.php?
Maybe this is the way to set it:
$bb->uri = 'http://path.to.local';
Hm, when I set
tracking of new posts stops and all topics appear as read.
Does there have to be an actual logout of bbPress to see results?
Which is not a good option cause most users won’t log out (untill the cookie expires).
Yes, custom theme. And I’ve set both colours to be the same since I don’t need that feature. But I hadn’t disabled it in the code… Just set it up – will see if it works better.
0.9.4 integrated with WP 2.7.1
And also – clicking consecutively on “Mark all read” and “Update only read” makes all topics unread.
I’m having the same issue with that plugin – forums stay unread.
Also other issues with it – can’t really figure out how exactly it works. Clicking on “mark all as read” sometimes does just the opposite.
WooHoo! A plugin accomplishing that has been just released:
https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/wordpress-latest-post/ <— in plugin repository
http://www.atsutane.net/2009/04/wordpress-inside-bbpress-part-1.html <— author’s blog with more info on usage
Tested it and it works well on WP 2.7.1 and bbPress 0.9.4
I’m also looking for that feature. Is there a working plugin?
Or maybe there could be a solution which uses some kind of feed parsing to display latest posts?
That is what I use to display latest discussions from bbPress into WordPress – just use the built-in RSS-parser. Is there something like that in bbPress?In reply to: Plugin: YouTube in bbPress
Maybe you can take a look at this plugin:
I’m not sure if it works on current bbPress versions though.In reply to: Adding pictures / images to posts in bbpress
maybe this plugin:
I am using it on 0.9.4 as I find it to be superior to the others. It is also very easy to customize and extend.In reply to: Integration Problems
Hi, please follow this thread:
and see if you can get the cookies right. The preview issues could also be related to the cookies (my humble guess…).In reply to: adding meta tags? or SEO option?
bbSEO Tools is great but it messes up cyrillic characters in the description for topic pages. I peeked into the code and tried replacing line 53:
return htmlentities($snippet, ENT_QUOTES);
return wp_specialchars($snippet, ENT_QUOTES);
Seems to be fine now
The plugin admin page is a bit messy – could use some more precise labels and explanations.
IDEA: Could the function for pulling out the description for topic pages be enhanced so that it strips bbCode and html tags from the output? They take up character space and look awful in search results.
I guess it’s a matter of writing some nifty RegEx but my knowledge is not sufficient for this.
Thanks and Cheers!
