In reply to: getting bbpress working after hosting change.
Moving to a new hosting company will not say that the database connection is the same.
Check the documentation from the new provider how-to connect to your database from PHP
That’s why I asked, I can’t remember that (it was more than two years ago ver. 0.83)
If it works like for wordpress everything is cool.
I’m wondering what happens if the mail() function is disabled during the setup?
Does bbpress send the password only by mail? or is the password visible for the admin on confirmation screen?
@kevinjohngallagher, what you say is so true
you’re right, but I don’t believe in bbpress as the big forum system anymore. If I need to build a big forum I go for bigger projects like vbulletin. I think if bbpress is a plugin it will be a better system and frequently updated. And what’s wrong to have a blog and a forum on one site? I write so much articles on forums which better fit into a blog than a forum. Since bbpress has so many bugs the system need much more development than now. I’m sure systems like vbulletin has much more developers than bbpress (I forget there is currently no one)In reply to: bbPress as a WordPress Plugin – Thoughts
There is so much work to create a full featured forum from bbpress and maybe it’s better to make it a WP plugin…In reply to: Nominations for Project Lead?
All the people mentioned in this topic are good for bbpress (Gautam as well).
But maybe you guys should wait for Matt’s comment in this topic. For myself I wrote several plugin’s in the past to make my bbpress a forum complete and some of them are already published. Before I will spend one more minute on bbpress I need to be sure that bbpress has a future (not sure after Matt’s closing comment here)In reply to: BBPM Translation
You need to process a translations file, google has many results on how to do that
The main difference is that new post are done on the website and not from the backend. Everything else looks a lot like wordpress. I’m sure if you create a wordpress theme which looks like a forum theme you can use wordpress as forum (except the new topic/post function)
Since bbpress is very similar to wordpress, a plugin is a good idea. This way you can publish longer forum posts in a much better way (just like a blog post)
I know about the discussion to create a bbpress plugin for wordpress, but where can I find this official information?In reply to: I have decided to write my own WordPress Plugin
do you ever tried google? just enter the hook and click search
Today I got the second mail with 100 spam links because I was subscribed to one or more topics.
It seems that akismeth has blocked the post here at the forum but not for the subscribers.
I’m sure that this way the mail from bbpress is marked as spam (by gmail) sooner or later
John, sure there is no guarantee, but the bbpress development over the last 2 years was never so active as for wordpress.
My Forum is ~ 2years old and I updated only once (to 1.02)
and at the end we have to trust Matt
yeah there is a great chance to trash your database
I checked bbpress for “batching email updates” and noticed that an extra table is needed.
One of the reasons I stopped looking into that feature.
EDIT: Important functions should belong to the core system, otherwise the development of some plugin might stop (like in this case)
I’m not talking about the plugin but about a core feature, I think email subscription is one of the secrets why forums and blogs succeed. My remark is just about why some “mail filter” is very important.
PS. If I send mail messages from websites I use always a SPF record
My servers IP get on black lists after my mailing list got more than 1500 members and I send only one mail / day. (this took only 10 weeks)
Just imagine if you have x.xxx subscribers and x.xxx topics, there are maybe thousands of mail messages a day. Every “filter” will help…
timskii, there are no plans to add any new user options for this feature, there’s no need.
As for the time issue, it’s possible that it could generate a lot of email but that doesn’t mean you’re going to be marked as spam. It’s nice to have one-per-message especially for threading and following conversations in things like Gmail. If anyone gets too much email, they can one-click unsubscribe from the thread and follow it in a different manner, like RSS. This is how new comment notifications have worked for years on the blog side, and it’s been fine.
I don’t agree Matt, for example Gmail marks mail messages as spam if you get too much with the same content (even messages from Google Groups).
vBulletin has a feature that only one message is send for replies by a unique member.
I stopped developing that kind of plugin because these timestamps / filters are too much work with the current version. I will not use the subscription function if there is an email message for each reply and I’m sure I’m not the only one…In reply to: Enable gzip compression
According Google most of my sites are slower than the rest according google, but the problem is mostly the google analytics code which takes a lot of time:
Enable gzip compression
Compressing the following resources with gzip could reduce their transfer size by 19.9 KB:
(what I have for my own server)
and check the load time for GA:
http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js (13.6 KB)
will say I will stop using Google (analytics) my site becomes much faster
If 60-70% of the sites are much faster maybe only ~30 are using slow “google” code on their site?In reply to: changing gravatar image
actually there is a response from Matt:
both topics are not so old and tell me the that something is going on.
I’m more concerned if someone “evil” has found some security issue in bbpress and there is no one who will provide an update…
… just checked simplepress, looks much more like a forum than bbpress
Thanks Steven, for posting this announcement.
Really bad that it looks like that bbpress has not some great future.
Actually I think about to convert my bbpress forum into a wordpress site using a theme that looks like a forum
Can’t be so difficult, the whole structure of bbpress looks too much like wordpress
