> the über ghetto way
is a perfectly valid, faster way to do it, but just needs maintenance as the bb/wp setups change, to ensure data integrity manually.
Maybe it’s accidentally eating the comments? I can’t remember.
Also, hey, look at that – september has almost rolled through and it’s still very, very broken.
Maybe Benzilla can help you? In any case, the basic ideas are pretty obvious in bbsync; just create meta-entries for each sync’d item on both sides, so you can use them in functions to make links and the like. Comments -> posts just uses a standard comments hook and the bb api to create a post. If I were trying to fix this I’d probably go back to basics and work it again from there, using the old (bad) code as a reference only; that could be the approach to take with this.In reply to: wiki bbpress? :)
Certainly it’s possible to integrate the logins with bbPress, if you want to use a seperate wiki system; all of bbPress’ login functions are replacable. I haven’t heard of anyone doing it for some time, though, but more than a year ago spencerp did it: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/mediawiki-bbpress-and-wordpress-integrationIn reply to: [1.0 alpha svn 1670] backpress errorIn reply to: Show exact date of post?

Hack her plugin to use a custom time-displaying function instead of the bbPress ones. I’ve set up a ticket asking for it to be simple to do what you want but I don’t believe it’s that easy right now.In reply to: Problem with bbcode-lite

Is there a problem with your wordpress install too?
To fix bbpress, you need phpmyadmin or a similar tool. Login, go to your bbpress database. Not certain what it’s like on 0.9, but you probably need to go to the bb_topicmeta table and perform a search (or browse through) to find a record where the
wp_table_prefix. Try deleting that record. Without that setting I think bb would look for its own users again.In reply to: Too many homepage queries
This query diagnostics plugin will tell you something. It could be ck’s originally. http://pastebin.ca/1182319In reply to: bbsync broken – plugin like it? BB 1.0
bbSync is very, very broken right now.
But the good news is it’s broken for me, too, so I’ll try to fix it – in september.
bbSync has always had its (not inconsiderable) problems, so don’t let that stop someone else writing a new implementation for what bbSync tried to do – or stop them from just fixing bbSync themselves.
Don’t bump; I am aware of this thread. If I could help, I would. I will help when I have time.
Not with the appropriate time.
No. Change your stylesheet.
No. No updates until the summer.
Also, on an unrelated note, the f in fel is always lowercase.In reply to: a working wordpress/bbpress integration demo?In reply to: characters like commas in “topic title” cause errors
> Is this a security issue? Are the forums at risk of sql injections?
No – or if they are, this isn’t a symptom (in my opinion, as ever). bbPress just isn’t prepared for this case. Cheers for reporting it.In reply to: Adding a column to a table install
You can use plugin scripts, but this is a terrible idea. This is exactly what the wp_/bb_usermeta table is for.In reply to: Proposed method for file attachments and uploads
(which if I remember from my signatures plugin has no action hook unfortunately and templates will need to be edited)
No, there’s been hooks for the post form for as long as I can remember.
Charlie: ticking off boxes because other software ticks those boxes is feature creep. Goes against, as you say, what bbpress is about. And even if it didn’t, it makes no sense; feature ideas should be evaluated on their own merits. I’m not saying attachments shouldn’t make it in (personally, I don’t much like file attachments), but that you can make a much much better case for it than saying that it’s a square on the Forum Matrix that bbpress doesn’t have.In reply to: Install4free.bbpress.org?
Maybe post-1.0. I think the barrier for entry for running a pre-1.0 thing should be at least being able to install it yourself.
Chris: http://www.messandnoise.com/discussions/1346861 only above 40 posts or somesuch.
From what I’ve heard, *press will probably end up with jQuery.
_ck_, is the cost of fetching a fairly unlimited and variable number of posts significantly greater than the cost of fetching just 40 once? I always thought the cost of doing a query at all was the significant thing, not the amount of data you get back – but I’ve not systematically learned SQL and I don’t really know where or how to look for this information Is there any place you can recommend?
> I would have no chance in coding it myself
Not if you’re thinking like that. Starting to code in PHP really isn’t so hard and there’s no genuinely nasty bits in this plugin.
But even if you really don’t want to try doing it yourself, bumping it does no good at all. The forum isn’t active enough for this to disappear off the front page immediately and plenty of people will see. There’s also far more people with ideas than people who want to write plugins but have no ideas (and that’s the way I suspect it will always be), so plugin requests are a rather long shot.
Upgrade your version of bb to the latest official build (and the same for wp if you haven’t yet). In general you should always upgrade, particularly before asking for help.
Sorry, I should have been more thorough. Follow these instructions at the bottom of the page.In reply to: WP Stats
Yeah I think it would, because bb uses a lot of similar mechanisms, but making it gather stats on bb would be most of the work anyway (so you’re probably not saving much work this way). You’ve got to find the right filters and process the data in a specific way anyway; it’s not complicated, it just takes someone to do all that legwork.
You know about bb’s (rudimentary) stats, don’t you? Just hit up http://example.com/bbpress/statistics.php.In reply to: Allow Image plugin question
